Tarrio, 36, was charged with destruction of property over the torching of a BLM banner that was torn from a black church last month in Washington. Raymond reportedly suggested that BLM signs in the city would be put at risk if Tarrio were allowed to stay in the city.

The order that will prevent him from attending the protests was seen as adding insult to injury.
