Florentina (who declined to give her last name) sits quietly at a chair on the back yard of the offices of "Al Frente de Lucha" in Greeley, as a press conference goe underway on October 31, 2007. Florentina was taken into custody after an ICE raid that took place on December 12, 2006 at the Swift & Co meatpacking plant in Greeley. She held her one month-old baby Abraham while Reverend Steve Brown (Cq) from the Presbytarian Church of Christ speaks to reporters. 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.
