The article focuses on the effect of the high-profile San Luis Valley raid on the immigrants in the valley. This anxiety has been widespread to all immigrant workers in the valley, other than those arrested in the raid. School superintendent George Welsh estimated that about 20 percent of its students came from homes where at least one family member stays illegally. He responded with electronic mails assuring parents that meetings organized by the San Luis Valley Immigrant Resource Center are valid. A new law added the fear that a routine traffic stop could lead to deportation. Data shows that about 29 percent of all agricultural workers in the nation are undocumented immigrants.
