Patriots unfurled a massive banner at the foot of Lady Liberty. When injustice is being perpetuated, we must all stand up

Anti-Trump protesters spread a powerful message on the Statue of Liberty. The group Alt Lady Liberty claimed responsibility for the banner.

Activist scaled the Statue of Liberty and unfurled a red and white “Refugees Welcome” banner on Tuesday, just hours after the Department of Homeland Security unveiled its sweeping plan to deport undocumented immigrants across the U.S.

The banner, which measured 3 feet by 20 feet in length, was unrolled and dangled from the statue’s observation deck, the National Park Service said.

The sign was removed more than an hour later after it surfaced, the Associated Press reported, but not before images spread like wildfire on social media.
