At least one person attempted the Sculpture of Freedom Scale after “Abolish ICE” appeared on Wednesday afternoon.
She saw a woman who changed the statue and got her to Lady Liberty. The island was evacuated as a precautionary measure.
Dear Statue of Liberty Protester,
Today, you are my hero. You make me proud to be an American.

Previously, seven people were arrested by the United States special police after developing a banner that read “Abolish I.C.E” on the statue. The doll was organized by the Rise and Resist NYC group, which said on Facebook that she demanded that President Trump cancel the US Immigration and Law Enforcement Agency and “join families, stop deportation and end detention as a deterrent.”
Social media images show that a large banner is blurred on the base of the statue. Seven will be charged with an illegal protest, Somma said.

US Attorney Mark Pocan (D-Wisc.) Presented a draft law on his way to the South American frontier where he noticed “cruel, inhuman and non-American policies that are taking place at the borders and are now a direct result of [President] Donald Trump.”
