Protecting Migrant Workers

NRR's Robert Smith reports from Fresno, California that a special group of Highway Patrol officers are trying to protect the lives of farm workers in that area. Last week, a van load of immigrant workers were killed in a traffic accident. Now, the officers are monitoring the drivers in that area who transport the day laborers in hopes of preventing another traffic fatality.
