Tourists viewing the Statue of Liberty on Tuesday may have noticed Lady Liberty looking a little different.
Activists angered by President Trump’s travel ban placed the ‘Refugees Welcome’ banner on the pedestal of the monument. The banner measured approximately 20 feet by 3 feet.
I thought the Statue of Liberty was in itself a giant "Refugees Welcome" sign. https://t.co/odhd2B987y

It is illegal to attach banners to national monuments and park police are looking to identify suspects. The banner was removed once park police determined it would not damage the monument.
