‘We want to give back’: Nutrimento defenso’s ‘The Big Bang Theory’ series
“They don’t know what they want to do.
They just want to make a lot of money,” said Juan Miguel Sanchez, a teacher at a high school in a northern city.
Sanchez said he is a nutrimentario — a term that refers to a group that sells illegal drugs.
He said the school in which he teaches has been shut down and its teachers have been deported.
The school was among about a dozen around the state shut down by the state because of the drug war, according to the state Department of Public Safety.
Sanchez and other teachers are now facing deportation and are unable to return home.
“They are not being able to go back,” Sanchez said.
“But they want the best for the kids and the teachers.”
Sanchez said many of the school’s students are on welfare.
“I am a mom of a 2-year-old, and I cannot even take care of myself,” he said.
The state of Texas said the closure is in response to the “war on drugs” that has seen thousands of people arrested, detained or killed in Texas in the past year.
The Department of Homeland Security estimates the total cost of the war is over $1 billion.

“This is a national issue, and we are all the victims of this,” Sanchez explained.
“We are all responsible for this.
The government should stop using the term ‘drug war’ and use a different term.
This is a war.”
The bill passed the Texas House but failed in the state Senate.
The House approved the bill in a 28-16 vote.
The Senate has yet to take up the bill.
