Reporter Mandalit del Barco reports from the United States and Central America about a federal crackdown against a Latino street gang involved in murder, drug smuggling and human trafficking. The gang is believed to have more than 50,000 members in the United States and perhaps thousands more in Mexico, El Salvador and Honduras.
