"The person who climbed the Statue of Liberty was one of forty participants in our planned banner action, but her decision to climb the statue was made independently of the group, without consulting any other member of the group", they said in a statement.
But members of the group said they had no idea she was going to scale the statue that day.
The earlier demonstration involving the "Abolish Ice" slogan is linked to a long-running protest against the government's Immigration and Customs Enforcement body, the agency responsible for identifying and removing undocumented immigrants throughout the US.
The park service also was taking a closer look at the statue to see if there was any damage, though that's unlikely, Willis said.
A WOMAN is facing multiple federal charges after she scaled the Statue of Liberty in NY to protest President Trump's immigration policy. The group said on their Facebook page, "Rise and Resist was at the Statue of Liberty demanding Trump and the GOP #AbolishICE, reunite families now, halt deportations, and end detention as a deterrent".
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said the president's immigration policy is a step forward for public safety. Eventually, officers put a harness and ropes on her, and she went with the officers to where a ladder was propped up on the base of the statue.
The U.S. Parks Police evacuated Liberty Island during officers' standoff with Okoumou.
Okoumoutold police that she was protesting the separation of immigrant children from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border. At around 6 p.m., police joined the woman at the statue's base-around 25 feet above the observation area-and took her into custody.
She spent some time sitting, lying, and moving around the base.
The island was evacuated while police tried to get the woman down.
"Abolish ICE" has become a rallying cry at protests around the United States, but Mr Trump said on Twitter last week that abolishing ICE will "never happen!" Minutes before, the woman removed her pink athletic shoes and attempted unsuccessfully to scale Lady Liberty's green tarnished robes.
