As helicopters flew over the unidentified woman, she pulled out a banner that was not visible with what it read. Afterward, police arrested up to eight people who hung “Abolish ICE” banners at other locations at the base of the statute – referring to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Police were seen talking to the woman who was seated on the folds of the statutes gown. The NYPD built a rope ladder to bring the woman back down to base because they didn’t believe she would go down on her own. The park was evacuated for the safety of citizens.
