    Liberty Island evacuated after woman climbs onto Statue of Liberty pedestal

    By CRIMESIDER STAFF CBS/AP July 4, 2018, 4:35 PM

    Last Updated Jul 4, 2018 5:08 PM EDT

    NEW YORK Liberty Island in New York Harbor was being evacuated Wednesday after a woman climbed onto the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, the National Park Service confirms to CBS News. Spokesperson Jerry Willis says people on Liberty Island were being taken to neighboring Ellis Island, Battery Park in New York City or Liberty State Park in New Jersey.

    The climber was on the base of the pedestal. U.S. Park Police and the NYPD were on the pedestal attempting to make contact with the woman. Park officials first responded around 4:10 p.m., reports CBS New York.

    The unidentified woman was scaling the statue for at least a half hour, "refusing to come down," Sgt. David Somma of the U.S. Park Police told CBS News just after 4:30 p.m.

    Somma said officials don't consider her a direct threat, but said her climbing the statue was a "threat to public safety." The woman, who was alone, has given "no indication" of why she was climbing the statue, Somma said.

    She "keeps changing locations" and so officers have been "not able to communicate" with her, Somma said.

    Earlier in the day, at least six people who hung a banner emblazoned with a message about abolishing the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency from the statue's pedestal were arrested. The sign read, "Abolish I.C.E."

    ICE is a division of the Department of Homeland Security whose officers arrest and deport unauthorized immigrants inside the U.S., among other duties.

    The ICE protest ended earlier, and the group Rise and Resist said on Twitter that the woman who climbed onto the pedestal was not linked to them.

    Rise and Resist planned a banner drop today at the Statue of Liberty. This action did not include the climber on the statue. Our action was completed earlier. While it was not part of our action, our first priority and concern is for the safety of the climber.

    Activists with the group say they hung the banner to protest U.S. immigration policy. They oppose President Trump's administration and advocate ending deportations and family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said the president's immigration policy is a step forward for public safety.

    Willis says federal code of regulations prohibits hanging banners from the monument.

    It's not just about public safety, it's about overpopulation, resources, jobs, wages, government spending, culture, beliefs, attitudes, national security, economics, domestic tranquility and harmony.

    What took so long to get the woman down?

    Why didn't the Police just go up and handcuff the woman and bring her down?

    Nobody wants a lawsuit. Any little thing results in a lawsuit in law enforcement...

    In a tweet, activists with the group Rise and Resist said the person climbing the statue has no affiliation with the earlier protest. (Danny Ownens)

    I heard on Fox News this morning she was a "Congolese" woman.

    If so, hand her over to ICE and deport here OUT of here on the 1st plane!

    This is WHY we want a 10 year moratorium on ALL immigration.

    I am sick of these people coming here, becoming a Public Charge, commit crimes, rape, murder AND then mouth off, riot and destroy public property!

    GO HOME! SEND HER BACK NOW!
