TAKING A LIBERTY: Radical-Leftist Climbs On Statue Of Liberty To Protest Trump & ICE

(NY POST) NEW YORK — A RADICAL Leftist wearing a “Rise and Resist” shirt climbed onto the base of the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday in a protest against President Trumps tough Immigration policies.

NYPD air teams were responding to Liberty Island around 1:33 p.m. after receiving reports about the female climber.

Cops said the woman appeared to be part of the group of protesters arrested for an earlier banner stunt.

They are members of a larger activist organization, called Rise and Resist NYC.

The group announced the stunt on social media just moments before carrying it out.

“Rise and Resist is at the Statue of Liberty demanding Trump and the GOP #AbolishICE, reunite families now, halt deportations, and end detention as a deterrent,” they wrote on Twitter. “We will fight every day until we end our brutal racist immigration policy.
