Electrons were removed.

Removing an electron causes the atom to have more protons, which have a positive charge, than electrons, which have a negative charge.
What causes an atom to become positively charged?
Electrons were removed.
Either protons were added, or electrons were removed.

Since electrons are negatively charged, removing electrons from at atom causes the atom to become positively charged.
