It wasn't a typical morning for 12-year-old Fatima Avelica as she watched the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detain her undocumented immigrant father as he was about to drop her off at school Tuesday. Romulo Avelica-Gonzalez, 48, was about to drop his daughters off at Academia Avance charter school in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles on Tuesday when he was stopped by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents clad in police jackets.

His 13-year-old daughter cried as she sat in the back seat of the family auto and videotaped her father being handcuffed.

Authorities said Avelica-Gonzalez was arrested because of a 2009 conviction for driving under the influence and had an outstanding deportation order against him dating back to 2014.

Brenda Avelica, another of Avelica-Gonzalez's daughters, told KABC that her father had been living in the country for two decades. When he did, the officers immediately arrested him with his 13-year-old daughter and wife still in the auto. "In a couple of hours they will have it in the system and you will be able to go to see", an officer says.

Romulo Avelica-Gonzalez of Los Angeles is among several innocent undocumented immigrants who was arrested by immigration officials while dropping his children off at school, Mic reports.

Kite Pharma, Inc. (KITE): Important Trade and Target Levels To Watch

Officials first told Avelica-Gonzalez's family that he was going to be deported that same day, but then the National Day Laborer Organizing Network stepped in and pushed for a stay on the order, which was granted.

"They stepped over a line, and the ripple effect this could have on the community is frightening", said attorney Peter Greyshock of Diamante Law Group in Los Angeles, who is representing the family. "Misleading practices like these undermine the good faith and spirit of cooperation that is so integral to our city's safety and security", Garcetti said in a statement to LAist. "It's bad to feel and see your family being broken apart", Jocelyn also told a local ABC News outlet.

"The irony is that the eighth graders went to the Museum of Tolerance today", said Ricardo Mireles.

According to Mireles, Avelica-Gonzalez had an nearly 20-year-old DUI conviction as well as a minor incident involving an incorrect auto registration sticker. "The Trump administration is causing a scare and that's just wrong".
