Description:History[ edit ] The Mexican Mafia was formed in by 13 Hispanic street gang members from different Los Angeles neighborhoods who were all incarcerated at the Deuel Vocational Institution , a California Youth Authority facility, which is now an adult state prison in Tracy, California. Gang warfare between Hispanic neighborhoods was the norm during the s and 60s, so the fact that Luis Flores was able to get established enemies to set aside their rivalries upon entry into the prison system was something that was not thought possible. This requirement exists to the present day. Hispanic street gangs like White Fence , The Avenues , Clanton 14, San Fer, Barrio Nuevo Estrada , and the oldest of them, Primera Flats, were already into their second decade and firmly established as self-sustaining entities.
