  • Police: Newspaper gunman planned deadly attack carefully

Earlier, several people on the statue's pedestal hung a banner emblazoned with a message about abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement and were arrested.

"She broke the law and will be charged federally", Jerry Willis, a spokesman for the U.S. National Parks Service, told the Daily News.

She engaged in a four-hour standoff with authorities on Liberty Island before two NYPD officers climbed up to the base and forced her towards a ladder.

James agrees to four-year, $154 million deal with Lakers
James is now eligible to sign a five-year supermax deal with the Cavaliers that would be worth $205 million over five seasons. As the official opening of free agency draws closer there's a strong sense that James is leaning toward the Lakers .

The woman arrested for climbing the Statue of Liberty in protest of President Trump's immigration policies blew kisses and waved at a courtroom packed with supporters after she was released by a Manhattan federal judge on Thursday. Footage from helicopters showed her sitting at the base of the statue, occasionally lying on her stomach and kicking her feet up behind her, ABC station WABC reported. Banner organizing group Rise and Resist says the climber isn't connected to its demonstration. A poem on the statue welcomes immigrants, reading "Give me your exhausted, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free", and Therese found that to be the ideal place to highlight the plight of immigrant kids being held in detention centers away from their jailed parents. Some 2,300 children have been separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May. "And when we got her, she couldn't go any further, and I think she realized that her time was up there", Glacken said. After much outrage, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to end this policy (even though it's his administration that enacted it in the first place), but this action hasn't helped reunite all of the about 2,000 families torn apart.

One of its members, Leon Kirschner, said: "ICE has proved to be a threat to our liberty and way of life, and should be abolished". It was removed after an hour of being discovered, AP reports.

In 2000, 12 people protesting the Navy's use of the Puerto Rican Island of Vieques for bombing exercises were arrested after a man climbed out on the spires of the statue's crown and attached flags and banners to it.

Belgium look to live up to hype against Japan
That was the first major tournament for many of us, knockout matches have a lot to do with experience and can be complicated. Belgium's second string beat England's second string in a game that no one was entirely sure they wanted to win.

While being rescued, the woman was aggressive initially, but the police was able to build rapport with her after a few while.

The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886 and was designated a national monument in 1924.

Seven other protesters were displaying banners, which read "Abolish ICE!" below her.
