The Guatemalan man who was arrested in an immigration raid last week in Rome will remain in detention.

At a detention hearing on Tuesday, a federal judge called Marcial DeLeon-Aguilar a flight risk and said he had been deported three times since 1997. One of those deportations came after an aggravated assault conviction, and the other two were after his illegal re-entry into the U.S.

DeLeon-Aguilar was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at John Collins’ farm on Thomas Road in Rome on April 18. DeLeon-Aguilar works and lives there with his pregnant wife and their four children.

A new hearing date has been scheduled for next week.
