Salt Lake City, UT – Since the 1980s, police have been dealing with gang members who arrive in Utah as refugees. First, Asian gangs, like Vietnamese and Cambodians later Bosnian and Iraqi youth began to group up. Now youth from Eastern Africa are vulnerable to gangs. As part of our series "Caught Between Two Worlds," KUER's Jenny Brundin brings us a report on some of the newest refugee gangs.
