Salt Lake City, UT – This month we've explored the unique challenges some refugee youth face in adapting to Utah. Many overcome tremendous odds and go on to lead successful lives. But a small but growing number of refugee youth are succumbing to pressure from gangs, where they find money, identity and protection. Today, KUER's Jenny Brundin brings us the final story in "Caught Between Two Worlds," a profile of a Utah gang member.
