We dedicate this episode to one of the largest and most influential communities in New York, the citizens of the state of Puebla in Mexico.

We begin in Manhattan, where Carmen Boullosa interviews Robert Smith, an American sociologist who has studied the immigration of people from Puebla to New York.

Later, we travel to Mexico, to San Antonio Texcala, in the state of Puebla. This town is known for its rich production of salt and onyx. We will learn how most of its inhabitants have chosen the Bronx, in New York City, as the place to immigrate to.

In San Antonio Texcala, we will meet families whose children were born in the U.S., and who now live the paradox of being undocumented on the other side of the border. That is, they are Americans without legal papers in Mexico.

We end with Angelo Cabrera, a community leader born in Puebla who has worked intensely to bring better educational opportunities to the Mexican community in New York. Angelo is currently in his native town. He is waiting for a new visa that will allow him to return to New York to continue his educational mission.
