NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Dozens of people participated in a protest against the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Monday morning in Nashville.

Yonathan Reches, event organizer, and member of Never Again Action, said the protest was to bring awareness about what ICE is doing in Nashville and the rest of the country.

“Jews and immigrants and their allies are coming together to use our unique moral authority as Jews in order to call out and resist the atrocities that are happening against the immigrant community in this country.”

The 75 to 100 attendees stood at the corner of Brick Church Pike and Ewing Drive where they waved signs, sung and shared stories.

“We are trying to reunite the Jewish community and to project that unity in order to protect our neighbors,” said Rechas.
