Representative Rashida Tlaib was briefly taken into custody at Detroit Metro Airport.

Tlaib was taking part in a protest with picketing catering workers at the McNamara Terminal when she was briefly detained.

A spokesperson for Tlaib's office says she was immediately released.

Photos of the protest, which include some showing Tlaib blocking the road, were posted on Twitter.

Workers are done with unaffordable health care and poverty wages—and aren't giving up until they get the good jobs we deserve.#1job
