Where's the Justice?
I've met many Hispanic gang members since my detention in immigration prison. Many of them have been in this country most of their lives. Due to their criminal convictions, they face deportation because they're not U.S. citizens.
When I talk to some of the gang members individually, they often reveal the genuine and good side of themselves. They want to do well; they love their families; they want to get out of their gangs. However, as soon as they're with other members of their gang, all logic goes out of their mind. They will risk losing everything they wish in order to have a good life with the gang. They're controlled by their gangs for life. To get out of the gang could mean losing their lives.
There's no logic in being in a gang and wanting to live a good life.
