The Washington Times reported:

The woman who created a four-hour standoff on live TV by trying to climb the Statue of Liberty has been identified by authorities.

According to the New York Daily News, citing “officials,” the woman is Therese Okoumou.

The Daily News also reported that Ms. Okoumu is an immigrant from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

According to the Daily News, Ms. Okoumou will appear in Manhattan Federal Court on Thursday on numerous federal charges, albeit all misdemeanors.

“The charges are expected to be violation of national park regulations or public use limit; trespassing; disorderly conduct; and interfering with government functions,” the Daily News wrote.

Seven protesters were arrested for their “Abolish ICE” protest this afternoon.
