Pregnant and Shackled: The Chaos behind Prison Walls Katrina Young Hodges University Criminal Justice Management CCJ4001 Professor Todd Everly April 10, 2012 Abstract For many decades, crime has been around the United States; from as little as running a red light to committing murder. Some people committed crimes because they were a follower of others and their organization and others because they had to find a way to survive. For instances, those people had to resort to some sort of criminal activity in order to keep up with society; rather it was robbing, stealing, selling drugs, or even committing fraud.

Drugs are now the most important problem when it comes to the Border (Department of Homeland, 2011).
