    Arrested Statue of Liberty Climber Identified as Congolese National


    Arrested Statue of Liberty Climber Identified as Congolese National



    NYPD via AP5 Jul 20181,387

    The woman who climbed the base of the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday is in federal custody and has been identified as a Congolese national.

    Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44, who immigrated to the United States from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and lives in Staten Island, was taken into federal custody Wednesday night for allegedly breaking a federal regulation prohibiting people from unfurling banners on the monument, the New York Post reported.

    Okoumou allegedly engaged in a three-hour standoff with authorities before officers escorted her down from the Statue of Liberty. Authorities arrested six people participating in the demonstration.

    The left-wing activist group Rise and Resist NYC, which organized a protest near the statue earlier on Wednesday to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, said she unfurled a large banner with the words “ABOLISH ICE” near the statue’s pedestal.

    Members of the group initially distanced themselves from her but admitted later she had been a part of the activist group. The group claims none of its members had been aware she would scale the base of the statue.

    Wednesday’s arrest is not Okoumou’s first run-in with the law.

    In 2017, she was arrested and charged with allegedly obstructing governmental administration, trespassing, and unlawful assembly for protesting outside a Department of Labor building in downtown Manhattan and refusing to obey police commands.

    In 2011, the New York City Department of Sanitation hit her with $4,500 in fines for illegally posting flyers on Manhattan’s utility poles, advertising her services as a personal trainer.

    Trump mocks 'clown' protester who climbed Statue of Liberty


    Therese Okoumou is surrounded by supporters as she leaves Federal court, Thursday, July 5, 2018, in New York. Okoumou, who climbed the base of the Statue of Liberty on a busy Fourth of July in what prosecutors called a “dangerous ...

    By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Thursday, July 5, 2018

    President Trump called a Congolese immigrant protester who scaled the Statue of Liberty on the 4th of July a “clown.”

    “You saw that clown yesterday on the Statue of Liberty,” Mr. Trump said at a campaign rally in Montana.

    Referring to the law-enforcement officials who captured the protester, Mr. Trump asked the crowd, “You saw the guys that went up there? I wouldn’t have done it. I would have said let’s get some nets, and let’s wait ‘til she comes down. Just get some nets.”

    The president marveled at the law-enforcement officials who captured the woman: “Did you see those guys, the bravery of doing that? What a group. We protect ICE and our border patrol and our law enforcement.”

    On Independence Day, Therese Okoumou of the Democratic Republic of the Congo scaled the base of the Statue of Liberty, prompting an evacuation of tourists on Liberty Island. She clung to her perch near the feet of Lady Liberty for hours before being captured by officers from the New York Police Department.

    On Thursday, she was charged in federal court with trespassing, interference with agency functions and disorderly conduct. She posted bail.

    Referring to the tough job performed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Mr. Trump said, “We’re going to protect ICE. They protect us, and we protect them.”
