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.


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.
