Then their representative stepped forward and spoke, breaking the long public silence in what federal authorities call the largest labor-trafficking case in U.S. history.

U.S. immigration officials continued their crackdown on transcontinental alien-smuggling schemes that use a "red-eye" flight that departs daily from Los Angeles International Airport, arresting 69 illegal immigrants Monday night as they tried to board a New York-bound jetliner.
