Summer is a beloved American tradition, but for many families it breaks the bank.
For years, efforts to track down and prosecute those suspected of war crimes and human rights violations depended on international courts and tribunals that took years to mete out justice. But increasingly countries like the U.S. are using new avenues like immigration laws to find and expel suspects accused in years-old conflicts like the Bosnian war and El Salvador’s civil war. We find out how a small unit of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is working with human rights groups and victims to target suspected war criminals living inside U.S. borders, and learn about cases in our region that are setting precedents for international human rights law.
