The two restaurants closed after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials showed up at Fiesta Mexico looking for a specific person who was wanted.  Authorities detained five other people who were reportedly undocumented immigrants.

The raid caused concern in the Hispanic community in Nicholasville.  A rally was held Wednesday night in the city to voice concern and show support for members of the community.

No word yet on when Fiesta Mexico is expected to reopen.
