Texas Chicano Brotherhood

Texas Chicano Brotherhood

The Texas Chicano Brotherhood was founded by Gilberto Villarreal (and others) in Hidalgo County, after they split from the Tri-City Bombers in 1994. The gang’s founders adopted the same blood in blood out regulation as established prison gangs and attempted to persuade members of the Tri-City Bombers to "flip" and join the Texas Chicano Brotherhood. The Texas Syndicate, and Mexikanemi, wouldn't allow the Texas Chicano Brotherhood to recruit within the Texas prison system, so they merged with street gangs from south Texas.
