On Monday a group of neighbors in Nashville, Tennessee used their bodies as a shield against ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officers attempting to arrest a father and son.
The episode went down on Monday morning when the father and son got in their van and were promptly blocked by an ICE vehicle. The ICE officers attempted to coerce the father and son into exiting the van so they could arrest them. When the neighbors witnessed the attempted arrest, dozens of them streamed out to help, quickly forming a human chain between the father and son's van and the ICE vehicle.
"We made sure they had water, they had food, we put gas back in the vehicle when they were getting low just to make sure they were okay," neighbor Felishadae Young told CNN in an interview.
"I was real scared about what was going on," Young continued. "It put a lot of fear in me, because it could be me, it could be my family. It could be anybody. It could be your neighbors, just like it was my neighbor today. It changed a lot about how I feel about this country."
