FRONTLINE: The Gang Crackdown FRONTLINE: The Gang Crackdown In a spate of brutal violence that has become a focal point of President Donald Trump's stance on immigration and a priority of his Justice Department, some 25 dead bodies have been found on Long Island since 2016 - all linked to the violent gang MS-13. Many of the gang's victims, like its members, have been immigrants.

FRONTLINE investigates the impact of both the gruesome killings and the resulting anti-gang crackdown on Long Island - home to one of the U.S.'s largest communities of unaccompanied minors, who fled gang violence in Central America only to face it here.

Drawing on interviews with murder victims' families, accused gang members, top Justice Department officials including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, local law enforcement and ICE leadership, and civil rights and immigration lawyers, The Gang Crackdown explores the reasons behind the spike in violence on Long Island - and examines whether law enforcement and the government have overreached in trying to combat it. Ultimately, the investigation finds that as part of the crackdown, many immigrant teens have been accused of gang affiliation and unlawfully detained.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
