Description

The series provided a comprehensive and detailed examination of Mara Salvatrucha's (MS-13's) growth, criminal activity, mobility and international coordination. Key findings were that a series of high profile murder investigations arching from Central America to Texas to the Washington DC area were linked to a single LA cell of the gang. Also the series was able to demonstrate how a major U.S. strategy for combating MS-13 - deporting members to their home countries- helped spread the gang across Central America and to new areas in the U.S.
