There was a real-life drama happening on Monday in the town of Hermitage, near Nashville, Tennessee. As Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents tried to get to a father and son, their neighbors formed a human chain, giving them enough time to escape.

Residents Susan Hudson McBride and Tristan Call published live videos of the event which lasted for a couple of hours so that everyone could see what was happening. It all started two weeks ago when a white truck began to appear in the neighborhood, which made everyone suspicious.

Once it started flashing red and blue lights on Monday, residents were alarmed and came to protect a father and son. ICE agents were quick to block the car with father and son inside, but reportedly they did it without a warrant.

When their neighbor Stacey Farley saw what is going on, she alerted other people as they helped father and his son to stay in the car. They brought them food, water, and even refilled his gas so that he could continue using AC in his car. ICE agents didn't do anything in the meantime but wait.

After a few hours, various immigration activists and volunteers arrived, together with one local councilmember. Police was also there but didn't help ICE agents.

One of the neighbors revealed that this family is living in the neighborhood for 14 years and that it would be heart-wrenching to see the kid being broken away from his parent. The father and son stayed in the car until ICE agents gave up and left.

Eight people then made a chain around the vehicle, before father and son run out into the home, cheered by everyone. ICE has targeted more than 2000 migrants for arrests but managed to apprehend only 35.
