This makes me terribly sad. As a Texan, I have been to many exuberant Cinco de Mayo parades. And I can picture, in my mind’s eye, the skirt-twirling ballet folklorico dancers and mariachi musicians and pickup trucks decorated with handmade fake flowers, and the end of the street suddenly closing in with windowless vans and menacing men in uniforms, sweeping into the stream.
