A Houston community organizer was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Thursday after inviting the agency to a community event where he had planned to discuss worries about President Trump’s immigration raids.

The Houston Chronicle reported that 40-year-old , a father of five, organized a town hall last month to talk about the raids with Democratic Texas Rep. Sylvia Garcia. He extended an invitation to ICE representatives, who declined to attend.

The article goes on to state the following:

Garcia said she witnessed three white men acting “suspiciously” by taking pictures of the crowd, which was mostly Hispanic.

Three weeks after the event, Gramajo was detained on Sept. 5 by immigration agents while on his way to work. In a statement, the agency said Gramajo had been deported to Guatemala in 2004 but committed a felony by illegally returning to the United States. His deportation order was reinstated after his arrest.

Gramajo immigrated to the U.S. in 1994 with his mother and they settled in Houston. He met his future wife while attending a Houston high school.
