    Why was she ever allowed to come here.? Appears to be completely useless. Unless you have a STEM PHD, we don't want you.

    She needs to return to the Congo regardless. She doesn't know what the real meaning of "when they go low, we go high" means. What it really means is what Trump is doing. When they're in the race to the bottom, we're in the race to the top. When they want lower wages, we want higher wages, when they want no or low tariffs, we want higher tariffs. When they want more low income people, we want more high income people. When they want low profits and high taxes, we want low taxes and high profits. Sad thing is Michelle Obama didn't even know what it meant.

    Be Gone From Our Land!! No Cake For You!!

    I still don't understand why there isn't clarity on her immigration status. The news media just kept calling her an immigrant. I assume she is a refugee, but that may not be the case. Questions I have: Is she here under a visa, is she a refugee, does she have a green card, is she an illegal (highly doubtful) ...... what is her exact status?

    Who is Therese Patricia Okoumou, the woman who tried to scale the Statue of Liberty to protest immigration policy?

    By JOHN ANNESE, KERRY BURKE and JANON FISHER
    | NEW YORK DAILY NEWS |

    The woman arrested for scaling the base of the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday as part of a protest against U.S. immigration policy is an immigrant herself and an active participant in the resistance movement against President Trump, according to fellow demonstrators.

    Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44, of Staten Island, was born and educated in the Democratic Republic of Congo, but she has lived in New York for at least the last 10 years, records show.

    She joined the group Rise and Resist, which unfurled an “Abolish ICE” banner at the base of the statue on Wednesday, a few months ago and has been taking part in about one protest a week with the group, according to member Jay Walker.

    “She’s been an active member of Rise and Resist for four or five months,” Walker said. “She’s participated in quite a few of our actions.”

    The group disavowed her lawbreaking stunt on their social media posts, but they expressed concern for her well-being.

    “No one in the group knew this was going to happen,” Walker said. “We don’t know if she did it on the spur of the moment or if she had been planning it beforehand.”

    He said he could see her at the base of the statue.

    “She was standing on the platform, touching her foot,” he said. “I hope when they took her down they didn’t injure her. That’s our main concern.”

    She was arrested and charged with federal trespassing, disorderly conduct and other charges. She’s scheduled to be arraigned in Manhattan Federal Court on Thursday.

    Okoumou works as a personal trainer by profession, according to a 2009 Staten Island Advance article, and she’s bounced around the city and the Catskills working as a physical therapist.

    In August 2017, she was arrested for trespassing, obstruction of government administration and misdemeanor assault during a demonstration against the state Department of Labor on Varick Street. Okoumou, who carried a protest placard, had covered her mouth with tape and refused police demands that she leave the building. She refused to enter an ambulance by lying on the ground, kicking her feet and flailing her arms, according to police. She was charged with misdemeanor assault after one of the cops was hit during her flailing, authorities said.

    Public records show that Okoumou has a long history of fighting social justice battles, even her own.

    In 2003, she filed a wrongful-termination lawsuit, charging racial discrimination after being fired from a job as a staffer at a battered women’s home called Safe Horizons. Okoumou’s boss complained that she was rude to other staffers and clients at the shelter, according to court records. Her lawyer eventually withdrew from the case and she represented herself, unsuccessfully for the remainder of the case.

    She won $1,500 in a 2009 racial discrimination lawsuit against a Staten Island towing company, County Recovery.

    She unsuccessfully filed a human rights complaint in 2007 against a group home in Staten Island for racial discrimination.

    Neighbors on Staten Island said that they were surprised by her statue stunt, but not by her reasoning.

    “It doesn’t surprise me,” Tito Rivera, the superintendent of her apartment building said. “She’s very outspoken about the Trump administration.”

    A woman who lives in her building said she wears her passions on her sleeve.

    “She can be very nice and she can be a b---h,” said the woman, who declined to give her name. “When I vacuum, she bangs on the wall. I bang back, and she put a dent in my door.”

    The two later reconciled after Okoumou took a liking to the woman’s dog.

    We have enough homegrown troublemakers without importing more. As a non-U.S. citizen, she can be deported. I would think the assault charge against the cop would be enough to deep six her back to the Congo.

    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY needs to go apprehend her and load her up on a plane back to Congo!

    Take her to a military base, load up on a military transport and get her as close to her country as possible. Put her on a bus BACK from there!

    WATCH: Congolese Statue of Liberty Climber Chants Anti-American Phrases Outside Court

    3273






    5 Aug 20182,509The Congolese national who climbed the Statue of Liberty to protest President Trump’s immigration policies on the Fourth of July began shouting several anti-American phrases outside a Manhattan courthouse Friday, according to a video of the incident.

    Therese Okoumou, 44, who faces charges of misdemeanor trespassing, interference with a government agency, and disorderly conduct for scaling Lady Liberty out of protest, appeared outside the Manhattan courthouse Friday shouting anti-American epithets in front of a crowd of supporters, the New York Post reported.


    “America, you mother****ers! You drug addicts! You KKK! You fascist USA,” she said, according to the video.


    Okoumou was wearing a green dress with the words, “I really care, why won’t u?” in a reference to First Lady Melania Trump’s “I really don’t care, do you?” jacket.


    The first lady wore the green parka jacket in June when she was on her way to visit the U.S.-Mexico border, and President Trump remarked that the jacket meant to send a message to the “fake news media” that she does not care what they think.


    The Congolese national appeared in court Friday with her lawyer to push for a guarantee that the judge will not throw her in jail before she agrees to a plea deal.


    The Manhattan federal judge said he would decide whether Okoumou should be jailed before sentencing after both sides submit their written motions.


    “If I can receive an assurance from the court that my client would not go to jail,” Okoumou’s attorney said, adding that his client would take a plea deal if the conditions are met.


    Okoumou began her anti-American chants as soon as she left the courthouse.


    Okoumou, who came to the United States in 1994 from the Democratic Republic of Congo, pleaded not guilty to the charges against her in early July before a judge released her on her own recognizance. If convicted of the charges, Okoumou could face up to a year and a half behind bars.
