ICE officials in Mississippi said they’ve released 300 mostly Latino workers swept up the largest single-state immigration raid in U.S. history. Wednesday’s roundup of 680 workers at seven poultry plants came on the first day of the school year and left scores of children traumatized and crying for their parents.
