While pregnant with 6 month-old Laura, Marina (who declined to give out her last name), was detained by ICE officials after a raid was conducted at the Swift & Co meatpacking plant where she worked. Community advocates in conjunction with Latinos Unidos, the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition and Congregation Building Community gathered at the offices of Al Frente De Lucha in a press-conference that highlighted the impact of the immigration raids at Swift & Co. meatpacking plant that had on children. A new report released today by the National Council of La Raza, and the Urban Institute found that for every two people detained in immigration enforcement operations, one child is left behind. Two-thirds of these children are U.S. citizens and a similar share is under the age of ten. The report, "Paying the Price: The Impact of Immigration Raids on America's Children", details the consequences of immigration enforcement operations on children's psychological, educational, economic, and social well-being.
