The Secret Life of an Undocumented Drug Informant

Yolanda Gonzalez Gomez

Norma knows what it’s like to live through hell. She says she’s experienced it ever since she was a child, growing up in an abusive family in extreme poverty in South Texas, as a teenager when she was forced by her stepfather to enter the world of drug trafficking, later as an informant for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and throughout 39 years of living as an undocumented immigrant. Norma, who asked that her real name not be used, agreed to start working for the DEA in 1989.
