Some 25 dead bodies have been found on Long Island since September of 2016. Are suspected MS-13 gang members the real culprits? 60 minutes. Refreshments will be served. Registration required.

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 American 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.

60 minutes.  Refreshments will be served.  Registration required.
