A total of 22 people were busted by the NYPD during an anti-ICE demonstration in Lower Manhattan Thursday evening, cops said Friday.

Sixteen men and six women were arrested during the rally, which began in Foley Square and made its way down to World Trade Center to speak out against allegations of unwanted hysterectomies at the border.

A dozen people received summonses, six received desk appearance tickets and four were slapped with both, according to police.

Charges included using a no-permit sound device, obstruction of governmental administration, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, cops said.

No one was hurt during the demonstrations, according to police.

About 50 to 60 people showed up for the rally, which also drew a heavy police presence and bike cops creating a barricade to keep demonstrators from heading into the street.
