SUMMARY:Gloria Eugenia Leon-Aldana was part of smuggling operation that recruited Mexicans in Mexico, smuggled them into the United States, and then forced them to work using a system of threats.

The smuggled individuals were housed in San Diego homes of two of the heads of the operation. The laborers slept on mattresses on a dirt floor.
