A year later, the legacy of California’s first immigration raid under Trump still ripples through the local school and within families as well.
Grace Rubenstein is a journalist and media producer specializing in public health, mental health and immigration. Her stories – told variously in words, photos, audio and video – have appeared in TheAtlantic.com, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Sacramento Bee, California Watch, KQED, The Bay Citizen, and Parenting and Edutopia magazines. She is the multimedia editor for TED Books and a regular contributor at The Center for Investigative Reporting. Grace speaks Spanish fluently, can’t resist a good salsa beat, has lived in Mexico and has reported stories across languages. She is a fourth-generation San Franciscan.
Since 2012, an unprecedented uprising by motley bands of vigilantes has put the Knights Templar drug organization on the run. Fueling the movement are thousands of migrants who lived in California and other U.S. states before returning to Mexico.
They harvest the produce and process the meat and eggs Americans eat every day. But many migrant women are paying a high price to put food on their families’ tables.
