PARTIDO REVOLUCIONARIO MEXICANO (PRM) aka MEXICLES

The PRM (Partido Revolucionario Mexicano) aka Mexicles, was founded by Mexican native Jose “El Maestro” Marquez in 1987 at the Cofield state prison in Tennessee Colony, Texas. Marquez’s objective of forming the organization was to unite all incarcerated Mexican nationals in Texas prisons.
The “paisas”, as they are also known, were the most vulnerable against the Texas Syndicate and predatory black gangs. These violent gangs often robbed the “paisas” of their commissary so thousands of incarcerated Mexicans joined the PRM. Prospective PRM members were required to prove their valor by attacking black inmates.

PRM: FROM PREY TO PREDATOR
Typical of all prison gangs, the PRM transformed from prey to predator in no time. The gang began recruiting Texas born Hispanics and mirroring the radical tendencies of criminal organizations such as the Texas Syndicate and Mexikanemi. The gang became profit oriented and began extorting weaker Mexican inmates causing the PRM to lose the support of many Mexican nationals.

PRM INTERNAL CONFLICT
In 2001 a power struggle erupted between PRM founder Jose “El Maestro” Marquez and the gangs 5 generals. Marquez demanded that the gang ban its members from committing extortion and believed it contradicted the organizations original principles. The gangs generals ignored Marquez’s demand then stripped him from his rank as president and ordered a hit on him. The attack was carried out at the J.B. Connally unit soon after, leaving Marquez in critical condition.

PRM DECLARES WAR ON BARRIO AZTECA
PRM’s long alliance with and Barrio Azteca was broken in 1998 when the Azteca’s declared war on the Tijuana, Mexico based “Border Brothers” prison gang. Both the Border Brothers and PRM had a tight alliance in federal prisons across the U.S. and the Azteca’s were often confusing PRM members as their Border Brother targets. A full scale war between the PRM and Azteca’s broke out in 1999 when the Azteca’s murdered a PRM at the Terrell maximum security prison in Livingston, Texas. The war between both gangs spread across the state and spilled into Mexico resulting in the deaths of over 30 gang members.
