On Thursday, an U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) opened fire in the parking lot of grocery story located in one of Nashville's immigrant neighborhoods, injuring a man who had reportedly refused to show the agent his identification. Local reports say the man is 39 years old and from Veracruz, Mexico. Why did this happen? We talk with Brenda Pérez of the MIX Nashville to discuss the latest. The MIX is a grassroots organization that focuses on community organizing and immigration rights.
