Federal border agents crack down in response to immigrant-smuggling violence

"The U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection started intensified patrols Nov. 7 as part of Operation Transguard."

"The Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Nov. 10 unveiled Operation ICE Storm, an anti-smuggling task force involving 50 special agents designed to dismantle smuggling networks in Arizona."

"Critics of the nation's immigration policy said the crackdown is futile without other elements of reform, such as a guest-worker program and legalization of undocumented immigrants."
