The trial for a protester who climbed the Statue of Liberty on Independence Day is set to begin Monday.

Therese Okoumou, who goes by her middle name Patricia, faces three federal charges. If she’s found guilty and gets the maximum sentence, she could be sent to prison for 1 1/2 years—up to six months for each misdemeanor charge.

Give me your hungry, your tired your poor I’ll piss on ’em
that’s what the Statue of Bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses, let’s club ’em to death
and get it over with and just dump ’em on the boulevard
