The FBI is alleging that Sanchez, who has dedicated the past 11 years to gang prevention and education, is a "shot-caller" with the Mara Salvatrucha. Despite Sanchez's hardly being mentioned in the indictment, mainstream media reports are focused on the allegation that he was involved in "conspiracy and racketeering." Community organizations who know Alex have rushed to his defense, declaring their confidence in his innocence and denouncing the arrest as part of a wave of repression against activists.
