Woman Scales Base of the Statue of Liberty to Protest ICE

By Faye Higbee

Liberty Island, New York City- Earlier on Wednesday, seven people were arrested at the Statue of Liberty after unrolling a banner that said “Abolish ICE.” They were from a group called Rise and Resist NYC. Later, a woman attempted to scale the base of the Statue of Liberty, but the earlier group distanced themselves from her, saying she had no connection to them. Tourists visiting Liberty Island were evacuated.

Fox News reports that the woman has been arrested.

“The climber on the Statue of Liberty has no connection to our #abolishice action earlier today.” @riseandresistny on Twitter.

The 4th of July is a time when tourists like to visit Liberty Island. The woman’s actions caused the entire structure to be evacuated, which didn’t sit well with some who went there to enjoy a bit of American history, since reservations are required ahead of time for some of the features on Liberty Island.  Then there were the armchair quarterbacks who decided it was a great kind of protest.

Do ANY of these left wing idiots EVER stop spoiling vacations and holidays for others? Apparently not.

Then there were those who found humor:
