NEW YORK:  Police say about two dozen people have been arrested inside Trump Tower after staging a protest there against President Donald Trump's immigration policies.     

A video posted today afternoon on Twitter shows someone on the second floor of the building's atrium unfurling a large banner that reads "No Raids."     

Another clip shows a sit-in on the marble floor near a bank of elevators at the Fifth Avenue skyscraper. Demonstrators held signs saying "No Ban" and "No Wall."     

The New York Police Department says officers arrested the protesters after they refused to leave.     

The NYPD and Secret Service have beefed up security at Trump Tower since the president's election, but the atrium remains open to the public.     

There was no response to a message left Thursday with the Trump Organisation.
