Two NFL players put some money up to help bail a California college student out of ICE custody.

ABC News reports that Josh Norman of the Washington Redskins and Demario Davis from the New Orleans Saints paid for part of the $50,000 bond for Jose Bello.

“For 87 days we had a man away from his freedom and family for reciting a poem. Yesterday he was able to pay bail. This dehumanizing psychological torture must end. And we can stop it,” tweeted Davis.

The ACLU reports that Bello was detained after he made a speech criticizing ICE and the Donald Trump administration. This was his second immigration-related arrest.

Bello says he is very grateful and the generous offer gives him of hope.

“I would just like to thank them personally, If I get the chance and that’s something I do plan on doing just because of the message they sent back, just that we have support as well,” Bello said.

Bello is is in the U.S to study and achieve a better life. He has been forced to leave his classes since his arrest.
