Mexico launches a major sting operation against "coyotes," those who smuggle illegal immigrants across the border into the United States. More than two dozen people are arrested and hundreds of persons detained. The operation comes after the deaths earlier this month of 19 immigrants trapped in a truck in Victoria, Texas. NPR's Gerry Hadden reports.
