The Associated Press, citing a federal source, identified the woman as Therese Okoumou, who was protesting the separation of migrant children from their parents at the border. Police used ladders to climb up to the ledge and, after trying to talk her into coming down, proceeded to approach her and put a climbing harness on her to help her down. "And I went as high as I could".
A group that organized a protest at the statue earlier Wednesday says she also took part in unfurling a banner at the statue's pedestal.
Officer Brian Glacken, one of the 16 NYPD officers who took part in the effort to rescue and apprehend Okoumou, said she was initially hostile as they tried to coax her down, but eventually they established a rapport. "I would've said 'let's get some nets, and let's wait until she comes down".
A native of the Democratic Republic of Congo and now living in Staten Island, Okoumou climbed the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday after participating in an "Abolish ICE" protest with activist group Rise and Resist.
Earlier, they'd said "she keeps changing locations" and so officers had been "not able to communicate" with her, Somma said.
"I expected when I first got up there, that first ledge we were standing on for I guess a good hour or so was nearly a 45-degree angle".
Okoumou is due back in federal court on August 3. We understand and share her desire to see the immediate release of children from detention and reunion with their parents.
After she was released without bail, the crowd gave her a standing ovation and one man screamed, "We love you!" while other attendees hooted. Okoumou responded by raising her fist and blowing kisses to her supporters.
