NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports on the FBI investigation into allegations that the Dallas Police Department wrongfully arrested and charged Mexican immigrants with drug trafficking. As a result, many spent years in jail on drug convictions. Police informants have admitted to lying, and several new trials have been ordered, and a judge has ordered another man released.
