GAINESVILLE, Tex. -- City officials in Gainesville addressed gang violence on school campuses at a council meeting Tuesday.
Council members say it's going to take a concerted effort by the city, schools and police to curb the violence happening on school grounds.
Police agree they have already been going into schools and question students with gang symbols on books and any other signs that they may be involved in gang activity.
Many worried parents say they plan to transfer their children out of the high school because of the recent gang activity.
Police announced Wednesday they plan to work with a federal program that targets illegal immigrants that are committing violent crimes.
They say 70 percent of suspects charged do not have legal citizenship to be living in the United States.
