Woman Scales Base of the Statue of Liberty to Protest ICE

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 was arrested.

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

Then there were those who found humor:
