According to a new report authored by the Anti-Defamation League, Texas is home to two of the largest prison gangs in the country, the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas and the Aryan Circle, which collectively have more than 3,500 members nationwide and one member as far away as France. But these groups are not just made up of a bunch of inmates picking fights in the prison yard. They extend far beyond prison bars, the report notes. The Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, for example, is responsible for at least 33 murders in communities across Texas in the past 15 years, according to the report.
