The Los Angeles Unified school board has passed a resolution barring immigration agents from visiting its campuses to search for undocumented students.

Despite reassurance from federal agents that schools are safe havens, some families remain afraid to send their children to school after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement carried out a series of raids across the country last month in search of Central American immigrants who arrived in the country unauthorized after Jan. 1, 2014.

The San Francisco district said in January that ICE officials wouldn't be allowed immediate access to campuses and "any request for access would need to go through a thorough review process."
