U.S. immigration officials captured 64 illegal immigrants in a recent sweep through Los Angeles International Airport. The raid marked the beginning of a multi-agency operation at LAX, which officials say has become a major hub for human smuggling since a crackdown began several months ago in Phoenix. NPR's Carrie Kahn reports.
