From last Summer, I wrote about this at the time: 

"Went with Leo to watch El Hijo Del Santo work a trios (six-man tag) today at a lucha libre event in McAllen. These are photos Leo took. Santo doesn’t age, he still looks in fantastic shape and was hitting all his signature spots smoothly. He looked great, finished the match with his ‘Tope de Cristo’ spot (top-rope somersault onto one opponent, rolls through and lands on his feet, then hits the tope to the outside onto another opponent). Match was good, a little bit of everything — wrestling exchanges, brawling, comedy, high-flying. Santo and Hijo De Pierroth were exchanging some neat stiff slaps and trying to unmask each other."

The hall of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in McAllen, Texas, is normally the setting for weddings and group dinners. But since June, the hall has been transformed into a makeshift crisis centre to meet the needs of some of the thousands of Central American immigrants pouring across the US border.

After processing by Border Patrol, immigrants from places other than Mexico are released into the US and given a notice to appear in an immigration court.

They are usually transported on federal government buses to the McAllen Central Bus Station just a few blocks up the road — the first stop on their journey into the rest of America.

With the influx of people into the relatively small bus station, the city and have worked together to set up this shelter as a temporary stop-over for new immigrants before they begin their bus journeys.  For many immigrants, this is the first warm shower and hot meal they have had in days.

Volunteers have organised the stacks of clothing into chest high piles with signs poking out of the top designating whether the clothing is for niñas or niños — girls or boys.  

In the rear of the room, other volunteers are stirring soup and preparing simple sandwiches.

 “Its become one those issues where theres a crisis in the community and the church is responding,” said Pastor Mark Gonzales of Dallas, Texas, who has partnered with the conservative radio host Glenn Beck to provide aid to churches in this region.

Weve just got word that theres a few families that were expecting, an announcement declares over the intercom.

A few minutes later a small group of immigrants walks through the double doors in the front corner of the room, and appear to be taken aback by the army of volunteers welcoming them to the church.

In the opposite corner, my colleague Thomas Sparrow, of BBC Mundo, is talking to 18-year-old Aidé. She made the journey from El-Salvador while pregnant, and went into labour while being held at a US detention centre.  

Later that morning, the young mother and four-day-old child began a more than 50-hour bus journey to New York.

We spent hours at this shelter during our trip, and spoke to many people. While there are many ideas about how to address the humanitarian crisis, there is little consensus. 

Its at places like this that people are casting aside their political differences and rallying around a shared sympathy for the perilous journey that these immigrants are making to get here.

Here is the flyer I made for my the show I booked with Angel Olsen. What a way to spend a Sunday indoors, with the warmth of her music around you, making things. The frame was taken and altered from the design on a hex ‘polvo’ / powder packet from a yerberia store. Welcome to South TX, Oslen.

These last few nights I’ve woken up various amounts of time cause I keep dreaming of home. Now, I can’t sleep cause all I want to do is be home. Fuck I can’t wait to be home. Hopefully I’ll be there in less than 6 months.

Ramiro Cavazos de Los Donneños in Les Blank’s Chulas Fronteras (1976). 
I went to his shop on S. 23 Street in McAllen a few days ago, and this 87 year old legend started jamming out with two musicians who showed up to talk with him. First he was messing around with the guitar, then he got his bajo-sexto from behind the counter. They did some polkas, rancheras, and it was so awesome.
