Extremely intense moments were experienced in a Nashville neighborhood in Tennessee when neighbors formed a human chain to protect a father and his 12-year-old son and prevent them from being arrested by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).).

Nashville Metro Police confirmed that at 7:19 am Monday, officers called informing them of their intentions to stop a Ford truck and its driver who refused to stop. When they arrived at the home located on Brooke Valley Drive and Forest Ridge Drive, in the town of Hermitage, they noticed that ICE personnel were trying to stop the man and his son, who locked themselves in the vehicle.

Police officers were ordered not to intervene and simply observe the facts, according to reports by Telemundo 51 in Nashville.

A video that has gone viral shows ICE vehicles placed outside the home. Then it shows how one by one neighbors of different ages and races began to approach the van to protect it.

The viral video was captured by Nashville News:

After the attempted arrest, the neighbors continued to support them by providing water, food and gas to the family who had to stay inside the vehicle. "We made sure they had water, that they had food, we recharged the gas in the car to make sure they were OK," exclaimed Felishadae Young, one of the brave neighbors there.

"Thank you very much for everything, I really thank you from the bottom of my heart, thank you," the man's wife, whose identity was not revealed, said with tears in her eyes, speaking from inside her house.

"The fact that there are 20 … 30 people who mobilized without prior notice," a family lawyer said in the viral video. "We do not know what will happen tomorrow, but we know that today the family is not separated"

"I know they are going to return and when they return we will also return," Young said of what the neighbors plan to help.
