Melanie Peeples reports a federal case against Tyson Foods for allegedly smuggling in foreign workers may signal a new strategy of going after companies rather than illegal immigrants. Prosecutors say Tyson paid a smuggler $200 for each illegal worker brought to the company to work. Tyson says the operation was the work of a few rogue managers.
