The FBI is opening a wide-ranging sex abuse investigation into the New Orleans Catholic Church, going back decades.

It's looking specifically at whether priests took children across state lines to assault them.

Some priests could be prosecuted under a federal sex trafficking law that doesn't have a statute of limitations.

Dozens of victims have already been interviewed over trips to Texas and Florida

The Archdiocese of New Orleans, which has already filed bankruptcy, declined comment.
