    The US government says it has arrested 41,000 undocumented immigrants in the 100 days since President Donald Trump ordered a stepped-up crackdown.

    That is an increase of 37.6 percent over the same period in 2016.

    As a candidate, Trump promised to deport all immigrants in the country illegally.

    But the policy is already taking an economic toll in the US.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from the US agricultural heartland in California’s central valley.
