Artist Izaac Zevalking, an immigrant from the UK, painted the eyebrow-raising image on the wall near S. Main Street and Charleston Boulevard in downtown Las Vegas before posting pictures of it online on July 29.

‘My purpose of doing what I did with the Statue of Liberty is to try and draw analogies with America’s past and how it was founded and how it was largely built by immigrants, to really make an analogy out of that so that people can apply that to contemporary society and contemporary issues a little bit more,’ Zevalking, who calls himself, ‘Recycled Propaganda,’ online, told KTNV.
The image shows Lady Liberty leaning over the hood of a U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement cruiser with her hands handcuffed behind her back.
