Preview: Operation Car Wash Investigation in Brazil “much bigger" than Watergate, says lead prosecutor 
Brazil's massive corruption scandal -- called "Operation Car Wash" -- involves billions in bribes and scores of politicians

The political corruption investigation in Brazil known as Operation Car Wash is "much bigger" than the Watergate scandal in the U.S., the lead prosecutor tells correspondent Anderson Cooper for a story that will air on 60 Minutes this Sunday, May 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

"We already have charged more than 200 people for hundreds of crimes," Deltan Dallagnol, the lead prosecutor of the Car Wash task force based in Curitiba, Brazil, tells Cooper.

Amid market turmoil and political uncertainty this past week, Brazil's president, Michel Temer, is now being investigated for allegedly approving payments to silence a potential witness in the Car Wash investigation. The country's popular former president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, is on trial for corruption and money-laundering. Car Wash also played a role in the impeachment and removal from office of Brazil's first female leader, Dilma Rousseff, in August.

Dilma is the former chairwoman of the state-controlled oil company, Petrobras, which is at the center of the investigation. In an interview, Cooper asks Rousseff, "Did you ever receive any bribes?" "No," she says.

"I do think for some people, though, it's hard to believe that, as the chairwoman – you wouldn't have known….something was going on," Cooper says.

"Let me tell you," Rousseff says, "I did not know."

Cooper also landed the first television interview with the judge who oversees the Car Wash investigation in Curitiba. Judge Sergio Moro has been hearing testimony this month in the case against former President Lula. In an interview conducted in September, Judge Moro explained his controversial decision to order the pre-trial detention of 20 corporate executives accused of being part of the bribery scheme.

"I understood that we were living in exceptional circumstances because the corruption was so widespread," Moro said. "And you need to do something big to stop it."

Moro rejected arguments made by former president Lula and his supporters that the charges against him are politically motivated. The judge compared one moment in the Car Wash investigation to a scene from the American movie, "The Untouchables," about Prohibition-era law enforcement agent Eliot Ness and his squad known for being incorruptible. "It's a great movie," Judge Moro says.

President Temer and former President Lula strongly deny the charges against them. More than 90 members of Congress and nearly a third of President Temer's cabinet are currently under investigation as part of Operation Car Wash. The trail of evidence has also led to 12 other countries, leading the U.S. Department of Justice to call this "the largest foreign bribery case in history."

Supporters of deported man speak out against Trump's immigration policy 
Indiana residents lament the deportation of Roberto Beristain, a family man and business owner, who came to the U.S. illegally nearly 20 years ago

The family and friends of a business owner who was deported to Mexico recently speak out against the new immigration policy that led to his arrest, and that of thousands of other illegal immigrants with no criminal records. Anderson Cooper talks to the Indiana residents, most of whom voted for President Donald Trump, whose new policy directly affected business owner Roberto Beristain, for a 60 Minutes report Sunday, May 7 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Beristain had no criminal record and had lived in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. His wife and children are all U.S. citizens. He entered the U.S. illegally in 1998, but he'd been issued a temporary work permit, social security number, and driver's license during the Obama administration. Beristain was the longtime cook and new owner of "Eddie's Steak Shed," a restaurant in Granger, Indiana, which employs up to 20 people.

"It just feels wrong," says Kimberly Glowacki. She and other local residents who know Beristain spoke with Cooper. "The community is better for having someone like him," says Michelle Craig. "This is not the person he said he would deport," she added, referring to President Trump, who she says she voted for. Dave Keck echoed her feelings. "I voted for him because he said he was going to get rid of the bad hombres-- Roberto is a good hombre," he tells Cooper. Matt Leliaert says Beristain had the American Dream in his hands: "I mean, he showed up here with just the shirt on his back and he's a restaurant owner 20 years later...and he worked his butt off to get there."

During the Obama administration, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) was told to focus on deporting illegal immigrants with convictions for felonies or serious misdemeanors. On his fifth day in office, President Trump signed a new executive order that still made deporting criminals a priority, but also made it easier to deport people with no criminal records. ICE says the number of illegal immigrants with no criminal records who have been arrested has more than doubled since President Trump signed that order.

James Carafano, a policy expert at the Heritage Foundation and a member of the president's transition team, says the new policy is designed to serve as a deterrent. "It's not that they're going out and they're looking for people who have done nothing. But that we have an obligation to enforce the law," he says. "And if somebody comes across our path who's broken the law... There's a new sheriff in town. And the law's going to be enforced."

In a statement, ICE told 60 Minutes that Roberto Beristain had been deported because he had a "final order of removal" against him. During a trip to Niagara Falls, 17 years ago, Beristain had taken a wrong turn, ended up at the Canadian Border, and been detained for not having papers. When he failed to "voluntarily depart" the U.S. within 60 days after that incident, he automatically became the subject of that "final order of removal." But three years ago, he obtained a temporary deferral of that order, and he had been checking in with the government once a year ever since.

Beristain's wife, Helen, tells Cooper about her husband: "The only bad thing he's done is stayed in the United States because he loves this country. That's his only crime."
