ICE Arrest Thwarted After Neighbors Form Human Chain Around Father And Son
July 23, 2019 Residents of one Tennessee community banded together Monday to thwart a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrest, forming a human chain around a father and son so they could safely make their way home. The incident unfolded in the morning, as the father and son got into their family van outside their Hermitage home. An ICE vehicle then blocked their van in, according to CNN. As the father and son refused to leave the vehicle, neighbors who saw what was going on came to

  1. Mother’s quote: “Got is good.” And exactly why should ANY credit be given to “him” when it was the PEOPLE who saved the day? Jeez! The indoctrination that some invisible and mute being had anything to do with this event is mind-boggling.

    • Hello Nan. I agree. I can imagine the fear of the man and son as they did not know the police that were there wouldn’t enforce the ICE lie to arrest them. I can see retaliation on the family and those that protected them. More and more is coming out every day about behind the scenes illegal actions taken by departments in our government. Ron is worried about my constant vocal anti-tRump stance and what it could mean. I tell him that is the way fascism wins by scaring people into not speaking up. I won’t be intimidated and I am glad the neighbors were not either. Can you imagine walking past the ICE and the police, knowing the ICE agents hated what you were doing and wanted to lash out at you but only the police presence stopped them as you helped the family. I think it was a good thing that the police were there or ICE would have tried to break through the linked neighbors and taken the family anyway. I salute the people who put themselves on the line for the man and his child. Think how traumatized that kid is now and will be all his life. They claim that radicalization is a problem in the US well keeping an father and son in a car for four hours will do that. I hope more communities will stand up this way. Sadly I just read about a group of white nationalist who are planning pride parades all around the country. Their main complaint seems to be LGBTQ are a competing religion that must be destroyed and white people created everything good in the world and non-whites want to destroy all that. Sick. Hugs

    • Hello David. YES! I was so stunned and happy to see what these people did. Yet if the police had not been there I think ICE would have disregarded the laws and hurt the neighbors to take the man and his son. People don’t realize how great the disregard for the laws of our country ICE has. They don’t care. They want to get rid of the brown people and they will do so every time they can. It is scary that one government department can have such disregard for our laws and legal rights. Hugs
