If by biggest you mean the largest memberships then AB and EME atren't among the biggest. Those organizations are small but have a lot of power. The biggest prison gangs are usually the ones that are based on street gang affiliations, like GDN, CCO, UBN, ALKN.

Eme may not be big but Surenos sure are.La Eme has a direct influence on the Surs.

Remember there two UBNs ,the one on the west coast and the one on the east.The one on the east used to be a lil big ,but they have been losing there numbers in the past years and are not that big anymore.They are only thick in NY ,NJ,and some MD state pens.

There's different AB's. There's the AB of Texas (ABT), Universal AB in Oklahoma, Arizona AB and others. The real AB is in the CA state prison system and the Federal pen. They're the only ones that use the shamrock as an identifier.
