Central American Connection

Under new Editor Dean Baquet, the Los Angeles Times is generating consistently excellent reporting. Almost every day the Times boasts an enterprising story that covers ground where few papers venture. One example is "Gang Uses Deportation to Its Advantage to Flourish in U.S." by Robert J. Lopez, Rich Connell and Chris Kraul, which traces how deportation policies have allowed an L.A. street gang to flourish in Central America and from there spread its roots to other U.S. cities. The story features reporting from El Salvador, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. in addition to interviews with FBI officers, prosecutors and the gang members themselves.
