Law Enforcement Around The U.S. Fight The Street Gang MS-13

ABILENE, TX - JANUARY 11: Daniel Flores, 24 years, shows off his tattoos from a visiting cell in the Robertson Unit maximum security prison on January 11, 2006 in Abilene, Texas. Flores, a native of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, became a member of Mara Salvatrucha-13, or MS-13, the violent Central American street gang, when he was 14 years. He came to Houston, Texas illegally in the same year with two friends and started working as a roofer for a construction company. He was arrested three years later in Houston for involvement in a robbery and has been in jail for 7 years. Flores has two older brothers in Houston who are members of the South West Cholos, a rival Mexican street gang. Flores hopes to change his life and will have his gang tattoos removed before he's deported back to Honduras. He last saw his father in Mexico when he was 15 years old.
