Patricia Okoumou, went to the Statue of Liberty with her activism group for a protest, with no actual intentions of climbing to statue. The thought crossed her mind a few times in the days leading up to the protest but thoughts are often just thoughts.
“I didn’t know the layout.” She said, “I just went by the grace of God and he led the way.” She was pushed to do so in part because she is outraged by the Trump administration’s decision to use “children for political gain.”
Okoumou’s hearing is later today and there as a petition to have all of the charges against her dropped. You can sign it by clicking here.
