ICE Raids Cause Pain to Valley Agriculture

The Trump Administration is has dramatically ramped up its plan to find and deport undocumented workers throughout the nation. That program is in full swing in the state as well. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an arm of the Department of Homeland Security, targeted 77 businesses last month in northern and central California to inspect their employee records. Now, ICE is targeting the agriculture sector in the San Joaquin Valley, as workers and the farming employers alike face an uncertain future going into the fruit harvest season.
