SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – Growing concern about immigration policies under a Donald Trump administration has prompted the Santa Fe School District to create a hotline. Santa Fe School Superintendent Veronica Garcia says there has been a lot of fear and anxiety from immigrant students and their families.

School counselors have been trying to reassure distraught students, but district officials feel they need to take an additional step.

During a news conference Wednesday they announced a hotline for students or parents who have experienced problems, including harassment linked to their immigrant status.

The hotline phone number is 505-470-8806. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
