"So he, this decree, which it was not going to pass in the Santa Ana wanted it best to be perfectly honest. They're going to treat foreigners as if they're pirates. As if they're filibusters, just like the Spaniards did with the filibusters of the previous decades. Soon afterwards, Santa Ana and an army of about 6000 began marching toward Texas. Progress was very slow. There were not enough mules to transport all the supplies, and many of the teamsters all civilians quit when their pay was delayed. The large number of women and children who followed the army reduced the already scarce supplies. The weather was bitterly cold, snowstorms tormented man and beast alike. Food and water were scarce and disease was rampant. Bands of Indians attacked the soldiers along the way. Many of the horses mules and oxen died. And by the time the force reached San Antonio, about 500 men and about a thousand women and children had died. 19th century campaigning. Oh, you gotta love it. You abandoned, you know, you can't followers. Yeah, they had a blizzard in northern Mexico that they had to march through. Which is not that it doesn't happen. But it was cold like we experienced cold back last December. There actually last one was the last January February time frame. We had the super bitter cold. It was one of the coldest winters on record for northern Mexico. Well, in Laredo, which is on the border, a Rio Grande river, cause and his men from bayar, who survivors from bayard joined Santa Anna's forces. And you remember, caused the promise not to take up arms against the Texans again. Hand Santa Ana told his brother in law, that was meaningless because you gave it to rebels. It's not valid. You're not bound by that agreement. So despite all of the hardships that causes army had dealt with because they marched to the bitter cold as well and had been in a battle, he ordered them to turn around, join up with his army and go to San Antonio with most taste. On February 21st, Santa Anna and his army reached the Medina river, which is about 25 miles from San Antonio. Two days later, they occupied the actual town of San Antonio. The texians had not realized the army was so close until they were just outside of town. And said to Anna ordered famously, ordered a red flag. To be raised above the San Fernando church, the red flag was the signal of no quarter, meaning we will not take prisoners. Travis replied by ordering the cannon fire a cannon be fired in the direction of the church. So both sides are determined to fight to the end. The Mexicans then began an artillery barrage, which is going to last for several days every single day. They blast away and the Texans respond to the best of their ability. And over the next week, Mexican cannon and infantrymen gradually move closer to the Alamo.

The Department of Homeland Security says it's committed to ending the remain in Mexico immigration policy and what it says will be a quick and orderly way. Long federal court battle ended Monday when a judge lifted his injunction. The Trump era policy required thousands of asylum seekers to wait in Mexico until their court hearings in the U.S., so what does this all mean for migrants on the southern border and for future immigration policies? Aaron reichlin melnick is the policy director at the American immigration council air and so what can asylum seekers expect in the short term? In the short term, the Department of Homeland Security has said that for the roughly four to 5000 people that were returned under the restarted program that began in December, those individuals will be allowed to reenter the country on the date of their next court hearings and seek asylum in safety from inside the United States, not in dangerous conditions in northern Mexico. So just to be clear, they can stay in the United States while this process is happening. That's right. Okay, so what about there were 70,000 migrants under president Trump who were subjected to this policy? What happens to them? Most of those individuals already had their cases terminated before the Biden administration suspended the program in January 2021. During 2021, the Biden administration brought about 13,000 of those people back to the United States who still had pending cases and allowed them also to seek safety. But now about three years after the program first began, we really don't know what's happened to those who didn't get in during that first wind down process. Some of them may still be in Mexico, some may have gone back to their home countries and some may have entered the United States across the border and be living in the country undocumented. Now, critics of the policy said it was inhumane. So what did asylum seekers risk by staying in Mexico? Under the remain in Mexico program, people were essentially forced to run a gauntlet of kidnappers just to make it to the courthouse door. There are dozens, if not hundreds of documented instances of cases where people were ordered removed, ordered deported and lost their cases for missing court when they were in the arms of their kidnappers at the time and being held for ransom. There are over there are thousands of instances of publicly documented cases of violence, assaults, kidnapping rapes, and even murders against people that the United States sent back under the remain in Mexico program. So for those put into this program, which was formerly called the migrant protection protocol, there was no protection offered. It was simply throwing people to the lion's den. Now remain in Mexico maybe over title 42 though remains. That's the public health order that Donald Trump invoked to stop migrants at the border, and in some cases send him back to the country they're from. Aaron does title 42 effectively keep the spirit of Trump's administration's immigration policies firmly in place. Yet for the last two years, the remain in Mexico program has really been a minor side program compared to title 42. Less than 1% of people being encountered at the border since December were sent back to Mexico under remain in Mexico. By contrast, since March of 2020, CBP agents have carried out more than 2.2 million title 42 expulsions. And for some groups, such as Mexican Guatemalan Honduran and Salvadoran nationals, up at times upwards of 90% of people crossing have been expelled back to Mexico. Though for other groups like Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan refugees, title 42 is largely impossible to use on them. And barely any of them are subject to the program because Mexico won't take those individuals and neither will the their home countries. But the biggest impact for asylum seekers with title 42 has been the closure of the ports of entry to most people. That meant that anyone who wanted to seek asylum over the last two years was effectively forced to cross the border between ports of entry, exactly what we shouldn't be incentivizing. Yeah, the asylum claims did not need to be heard, or don't need to be heard under 42, right? That's right. A person who is expelled under title 42 is completely denied any chance to seek asylum. As compared to the remain in Mexico program where at least there was a fig leaf of a chance to seek protection. And just to be clear, it's U.S. law guarantees the right to seek asylum. So 42 completely goes against that. That's right. And in fact, in a federal court in Washington, D.C. ruled that it was actually a violation of our laws and international treaties to expel people to a country to which they would be persecuted and ordered that certain family members who were subject to expulsions have at least a right to claim that they would be persecuted in the country to which they'd be expelled, giving them a chance for some minimal asylum screenings. But even though screenings are far less than what are normally offered under U.S. law. Yeah, we could probably talk about this for a long time, but we got about a minute left. What would you say are the biggest priorities for the United States immigration policy right now to fix or to maybe iron out? We are now multiple years into an unprecedented time of mass displacement and refugee flows. But the laws with which were responding to this crisis are outdated and flawed. We last updated our legal immigration system 32 years ago in 1990 before the first website even went online. And the last time we overhauled our asylum system was 1996, in other words, we're facing a 21st century challenge with 20th century laws. Some people say we can simply crack down harder, build the walls and everyone back to Mexico and wash our hands of asylum. But the history of the last century shows us that it's only long-term solutions which truly reduce migration, like addressing root causes and expanding legal pathways to migrate.

It's not going to affect us, but as you've been mentioning earlier, mother nature doesn't care about borders. Right. You know, there are a lot of people who see the crisis in monterrey as this very clear warning for the United States and particularly Southern California. Southern California cities import about 55% of their water from the Colorado River and from Northern California. They've already been forced to reduce water usage and now face the prospect of further cuts because drought is really draining the Colorado River and there's this federal pressure on Southern California to start taking less water. So California, particularly Southern California is having to figure out how can we live with less water. And that's the exact same thing that's happening in monterrey. What we're seeing in monterrey is really a kind of a surreal scene, right? This incredibly modern city with gleaming office towers and literally a Maserati dealership. This is a wealthy LA like city where literally the traps have just run dry and people are holding water from wells. So it's kind of the worst case scenario for a place like LA, but if Southern California can't figure out how to make do with less water, it

"Their response to the crisis? So businesses have been under a lot of pressure from the government, particularly the federal government to do more Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the president amlo. He is really going after them. He's someone who's been very critical of kind of corporations, which he's described as greedy in the past. So for him, this is almost becoming like a political issue. He's basically threatened to shut down these factories if they don't start giving more water immediately. And already some of these plants are helping. You know, there's a major steel plant here that's giving like 40 gallons a second from its well to the city's water system, the Heineken plant is drilling a new well Pepsi's donated tons and tons of bottled water. And interesting kind of scene we came upon is the topo Chico factory, which is where all of the topo Chico water comes from. It's at the foot of this craggy mountain here in the middle of Monte city. And its long had these public basically water taps where residents can fill up jugs with drinkable water outside of the plant, but now people are coming from all over the city, waiting in line for hours to fill up jugs of water to use for really basic necessities like bathing. So people in Monte are now like bathing and cleaning their laundry with topo Chico water. We had you on the times last year to talk about the bad drought in sonora, which is also in northern Mexico, but in the western part, and you mentioned that monterrey situation is connected to the drought in California. The drought in Arizona basically the American southwest and northern Mexico. So what's occurring climate situation then? Climate change has increased the frequency and severity of the la Nina, whether pattern. And what that does basically, it results in more intense droughts precisely in northern Mexico and the southwest of the U.S.. So we're expecting to see more of this, you know, to see more intense, longer, hotter droughts in these regions, and as you know, like a lot of cities in the southwest of the U.S. and a lot of cities in Mexico, like monterrey, they rely on imported water. Southern California gets most of its water from Northern California and the Colorado River, it's in a similar situation, really, with monterrey. So these cities that have grown so much, are really having to figure out how to learn to live with less water because that's going to be the future. They will simply be receiving less water. It's interesting that you mention Kate that the city of monterrey, the people you talk to, they're like, not ready for this future with less water because if you talk to the people in the rural areas, that's just a part of life, like where my parents are from in sakata, from these two little villages, you didn't get water all the time, even though there's a damn they're oppressed that holds a reservoir, like the poor people they know, like water, you have to ration it all the time, but it seems like he's richer cities. They're like, oh no, there's gonna be water all the time for all of us. Yeah, you're totally right. Water has never been a given particularly in poor parts of Mexico. According to census data, around half of Mexican households who have access to piped water, get water on an intermittent basis already, and even in Mexico City where I live, which is this rainy, lush city. We have occasionally cuts and service because there aren't proper water catchment systems, and we're draining the aquifer. So this is a nationwide problem in a way, getting these water distribution systems really up to speed kind of balancing that with the needs of manufacturing and industry, which in Monterey and so many other places is rather unregulated because they drill these private wells and there isn't a ton of oversight about how much water they're taking, how much water they're actually using. So that's this other big issue here is there's a lot of unregulated water use. There's also a lot of water theft that we see in monterrey, for example. And that's one thing that authorities are trying to do now is find these places where people are stealing water from pipes or have a legal wells that's also a very prevalent problem here. This is not a new problem for the city in the 70s and 80s. They had another water crisis and people revolted just like they are now. It was particularly led by women who, as I saw in the last few days, are really the ones who are really kind of burying the burden here because they're often the ones in charge of the house. And without water, they really can't do anything. So you had this protest movement forming in the late 70s and 80s and they actually were able to get some changes made and want their day. They literally helped spur the government to build another dam. They helped spur the government to pipe in water to more houses on the periphery, but the problem is the effects of that protest movement. I think we're short lived. The officials in monterrey put their heads in the sand for a couple of decades and poked this problem would go away until this summer when it rooted its head again and they're really confronted with this crisis. After the break, how the crisis in monterrey is a stark warning for the rest of Mexico and

"Has there been any protests yet or anything like that? Yeah, there have been a ton of protests. It's arranged from people basically blocking highways blocking access to factories, upriver, where monterrey is trying to basically pipe water from to get to the city. We're seeing farmers and others who are protesting that because they don't want to share their water with the city that is run out. And then in monterrey itself, we're seeing daily protests of people storming highways blocking access to roads and what they're demanding is that the city provide them the residents with water, and they are angry, particularly at industry, which has largely continued to function as normal because they have access to these private wells, and they want that water to be shared with the people of Monterey. Hearing you say all of this is surprising because when I think of the city, you know, I always remember how even in Mexico people think of it as more like a suburb of the United States because it's such a rich city. It's so modern compared to the other big cities in Mexico. And even the people there kind of view themselves as different, you know, quote unquote, better than the rest of Mexico. Yeah, absolutely. Monte is one of the wealthiest cities in Mexico. It's the second largest. It's two hours from the Texas border. It's filled with these really high quality factories that produce Mercedes buses and caterpillar tractors and steel and beer and soda and all of these things for American consumers. It's been a draw for people for years because of that because there are really well paying jobs compared to other parts of the country. So it's been just this motor of industry in the country. And yet for years, it seems like officials have been ignoring this obvious fact that if you have a population that's growing three times in just 40 years that you really need to make sure you have the right supply of water for them and the right system to distribute it. There's also this history there of these really wealthy kind of industrialists who've long controlled the city sitting on the planning commission sitting on the water and dream boards and basically making sure that wealthier neighborhoods and factories were receiving more investments in water infrastructure, while the poorer neighborhoods really weren't benefiting from that same investment. So you have this huge boom of people and you have the system of water distribution that is just totally not up to speed. Yeah, how did monterrey get into this bad water situation? So one that I lies kind of at the tail end of the Rio Grande river basin, which starts up in the rockies in Colorado and flows through several U.S. states and several Mexican states. It's this area that's semi arid. It's kind of desert, Monday itself is a bit of an oasis, but it's a very dry hot place over the last few years as Monte has been hit with this drought that has really pummeled much of northern Mexico and also the southwestern United States. So the same drought that's hitting California and Arizona and New Mexico is also affecting the amount of water that's available in monterrey. There are three dams that have been constructed over the years, basically around and in that basin that provide the water for Monterey proper. And those dams have basically nearly completely drained. So they're right now scrambling really defines new sources of water, which as we know is never an easy thing. So there's conflict with other states, is conflict with industry. There's a lot of conflict right now of our water. We'll be right back. I was a chicano student activist in the early 1990s. And like most college students who ran in those circles, I knew Oscar Gomez because he was a chicano movement rockstar. One of these people scared of the rasa is going to get educated that they're going to be able to go back and empower their communities. A radio DJ at just 21 years old. And then, the body of 21 year old Oscar Gomez was discovered Gomez died of massive head wounds, but his family doesn't believe he got them from falling off a cliff. So I'm going back into the past to find out what happened to Oscar Gomez the 90 died. There was, I think, a little bit of a chaotic part to him. Nobody knows what happened. Well, that's why we were here. Just when you think you a notion of where the story may be going, bam. You'll jump tracks. From LA studios, I'm adolfo Guzman Lopez.

So Kate, if monterrey officials had long ignored how the city was getting its water and how precarious the whole situation was, especially being at a naturally dry area, how are they dealing with the crisis now? So they are obviously reducing the water that they actually distribute to houses in the hope that they can save what little water remains in the reservoirs to wait out these really hot summer months so that in September, Wednesday, a hurricane blows through the Gulf Coast and want that egg gets a lot of rain. Those reservoirs can fill up hopefully and replenish the system. They're also exploring new options. Some of the things they're considering are the building of a new dam. One is already under construction. They are planning probably a second one. They're looking at water recycling techniques. They're drilling new wells, which is kind of a short sighted solution, a lot of water experts say because the aquifer beneath the city is already very overexploited. So there's not a ton of water there. Right now they're kind of just desperately trying to think of more water resources, but the fact is it takes like 5 years to build a dam. So there's no real immediate solution from monterrey and it's very possible that in the coming years every summer when it gets really hot when water starts draining from these dams, we're going to be in the same situation. Are these businesses that are getting all of this water like, what's

"And an even thirstier future. Joining us to talk about this is LA times foreign correspondent Caitlin to come. Kate, welcome to times. It's great to be here. What are Monterey's residents experiencing right now? So the majority of people in monterrey only have water for a few hours a day in the morning, the rest of the time, their tops are running dry. But then there are really big sections of the city, particularly the areas kind of on the periphery, kind of farther out, where there's no water at all. Some of these neighborhoods have not had water for a few weeks, others have gone a few days to bathe to cook, to clean, they are relying either on bottled water that they buy from stores or water that's being trucked in by the government or occasionally there are these wells in parks that they can access. So as people basically carrying water to their houses in buckets, kind of like the olden days. The people I talk to are really desperate, they really exhausted. They have jobs, have families, and then on top of all of that, have to spend hours a day figuring out how they're going to procure water to cook dinner or to flush their toilets. So it's a really a point of just total despair. I spoke to one man from the town of Garcia, who had been without water for days. He had come to this local dam to try to escape just the exhaustion of dealing with the water he goes there with friends to fish. But once he got to the dam, he realized it was empty because it's one of the dams that feeds Monterey. So he and his friend kind of stood there at the bottom of this mostly

"Of neglect of the Mexican state in combating impunity in combating organized crime in combating the collusion that exists between public officials in Mexico the police local politicians et cetera and organized crime Imagine if you're a journalist and you get a threat and you know that a local police official is behind it Where do you go to report it Yeah Another reporter paying his respects was Antonio Maya Late lures he's also inside the state's protection scheme after suspected cartel members appeared at his home in an unmarked vehicle Now he's accompanied all day by an armed guard shadowing his every move But Antonio knows that if Mexico's drug cartels want to silence him there's very little he can do Of course I'm very aware of that The person who wants to hurt you is going to hurt you If I want to kill you they're going to kill you If the decision has been taken it will happen because the person was going to do it has been paid to do a job and would try to do it the best he can That's the reality we live under Who's Maldonado was the second journalist to be killed in Tijuana within a week after photographer margarito Martinez was also gunned down Colleagues say that mister Martinez had tried to sign up for the government's protection scheme but not been able to A journalist and an adviser to the scheme says it's not fit for purpose It has been broken from its very inception It was designed with no recommendations from journalists Instead it was put together under pressure from international human rights groups over the high rate of attacks and murders of journalists and it was just improvised They made it up as they went along We asked the state government for an interview but none was given However whenever he's been asked about the murders by the press president Lopez Obrador has gone on the offensive Journalists are carrying out the noble work of informing he said urging his supporters to call out his critics online His response as angered many journalists who accuse him of ignoring the dangers they face In the wake of the killings journalists took to the streets in cities across the country to demand greater protection and an end to impunity Yet the grim reality is that with four voices extinguished already this year Mexico looks set to remain the most dangerous country in the world for journalists outside of a war zone Well ground reporting from the Mexican city of Tijuana And I've been speaking to Javier garter a journalist in torion in northern Mexico He also specializes in security and protection protocols for journalists but how can they keep safe If even those in government protection schemes with an armed guard following them around a murdered That's the tough question That's the question that we have been grappling with for years more than a decade now I think the question is more broad than saying how can we keep safe even if people who are on the protection schemes are getting targeted is because regardless of protection schemes is how can we keep safe when we know that the authorities don't care because the protection schemes are I look at it as a bureaucratic way to cover up the fact that the government is not willing to solve the problem at its core And so it is taking measures that it's so that it can show that it is doing something but without actually tackling the core the core is really impunity It's the fact that anybody who attacks the journalist at some point knows that he can do it because the last person who did it got away with it And so there is a reasonable expectation that nothing is going to happen So was journalists realized that the government is not going to help us that the authorities are not going to help us Then we have to help ourselves And the only way to do that is to develop safety protocols safety guidelines within the newsrooms for personal use how does a reporter how do we conduct ourselves when we're out in the streets How do we make sure that nobody's following us How do we make sure that nobody is surveilling us or hacking our telephones or our digital devices We need to have safety structures in place That's something that I have been doing for the past ten years is training journalists to develop these protocols And they're not guaranteed that nothing is going to happen to you but at least it makes you aware So your number one suggestion or a bit of advice to journalists is that they are responsible for their own safety They can not rely on the state Given the current reality yes that doesn't mean that we should just let the authorities say on their hands and do nothing On the other hand of course there is a lot of advocacy There is a lot of interaction and building support networks among ourselves with international organizations so that we can make this problem more visible and try to shame the authorities into doing something What kind of journalists are most vulnerable in Mexico Is it those exposing links between criminal organizations and local governments Is it those trying to expose drugs cartels Yeah those would be the people most at risk It's hard to pin down one particular beat so to speak Reporting on our investing corruption networks and collusion between authorities and criminal groups is usually the riskiest situation that a journalist can find him or herself in especially when done at the local level If you look at the string of killings in the past decade or so it has been local journalists covering local governments local criminal activity And that's where the impunity happens because local authorities at the city level at the state level are the weakest and they are usually penetrated They are usually colluded with the criminals We began Javier talking about what you described as the core issue which is that of impunity of The Killers How do you tackle that Well that's the other big question It's not for journalists to tackle that I mean that is really a question for the authorities What we can do as a group is pressure the authorities into doing that And I think it's a matter of political will It's recognizing that you have a problem Because sometimes we see authorities say that whenever for example a journalist is killed the investigators are prosecutors or the local authorities say the local mayor or the governor would say well it's because he wasn't to some other shady activities or this is a passion crime First we have to get authorities to stop minimizing the problem We have I think a flawed diagnostics from the Mexican president Lopez Obrador because he says the status in kill journalists anymore And so there is not a problem anymore And that is true The state is not killing journalists or the federal government at least it's not killing journalists But they are not the only ones who can attack a journalist drug dealers drug cartels or killing journalists local officials are doing so Other actors economic criminal actors are killing journalists So if the highest authority in the country thinks that only the state kills journalists and the state is not killing journalists then there is not a problem And that is not true That is a flawed diagnosis of the problem And so they are blind to the fact that journalists are still dying And they just don't think it's an issue That was Javier Garza a journalist

Chef Iliana de la Vega discusses authentic Oaxacan cuisine
"Chatting with chef. Ileana de la Vega about authentic hocken. Cuisine Ileana welcome to milk street. Thank you very much for having me here. Let me just start by saying of Ben to Your Restaurant in Toronto in Austin a couple times in the last two years and it was the best Hawkin food of had including in. Walk US terrific so you lived in Mexico City remarried there. You move to to start Eldorado restaurant but but you had trouble being accepted in some way. So explain that to me. Yeah what happened? I mean as you mentioned I was born in Mexico City and eventually ninety four actually moved to a hacker. We opened the restaurant until ninety seven. And Yeah my mom is what was Oaxacan but because I was in born in Oaxaca was not supposed to be cooking blog on food. I mean I guess that things have changed you know hook us a little bit more open now than it was there but You know for them. I wasn't outsider. So you had the restaurant there and then in two thousand six you left so what happened between ninety seven and two thousand six in terms of your restaurant and the politics and everything in the region. Well we were very successful restaurant. Join despite of like many were huggins. Consider me that it was an tighter and then on two thousand six there was turmoil in Oaxaca social unrest and so we had you know the economy collapsed in. We had to close a restaurant. And then I bet charlie we moved to Texas Allston. Imprecise you and I spoke a while back about what is moulay and your definition of it was totally different than what I thought. So could you just break it down for me? I mean you said there were three basic components to moulay. Maybe you could just take us through the concept right. They are like three groups of ingredients to make malate so one will be vegetables and by vegetables. How you also mean chillers. Okay so tomatoes tomatoes onions and garlic and such and then we have spices. So let's say black pepper cumin Cinnamon sugar sold chocolate. And then the third one very important one for these are the figures could be bread or it could be muscle for making tortillas and also not like almonds so there are the three of you take a little bit of each in each one of those categories you will make a molly molly. Negro is very complex. But I I gather that some Malays actually are much simpler than that rhyming. Talk to us about a simple mobile. Yeah okay like let's say like me. For example I think is the simplest one. You'll take a you know. Fresh Materials Green Sheila's Serrano's Jalapenos. Or one of those onion garlic and put it in the blender and then you fried mixture and then you add some herbs fresh herbs so I do up Ohio Santa Parsley and episode. That's my traditional one. And then you have the thickener. Which is the muscle that you dilute. I in a little bit of water and you added so those are the basic ingredients and you can make that. Molay in twenty minutes rather than the. Mola negative that he takes three days. I want you to describe because I've had your Molin Agro and it was divine if you taste a really well made Molin agro. Ideally what should it be like? What is important when you make him? Only non one of those stents out not on one of those flavors. So you will they said. Oh it is a little cinnamon and then the next. We'll give you a little bit of cumin for example or the next bite will give you a little bit of chocolate so each You know spoonful that you take the molly will give you a different note Let's let's talk about some common things in Oaxaca. The Mole Yetay Which I had for breakfast WanNa talk about how that's made. And maybe the tradition of that dish. Well then we get something simple that you will find all over Mexico. Norling OAXACA somewhat yet is believe traditionally like by a piece of bread like a kind of a French bread and then put a little bit of a border in it then beans and then some cheese will melt and then you put it on there. They'll win or something to get kind of. Nice melting and cross the cheese. And then you make Salsa Makina which is like Salsa Pico they get your tomatoes onion Sheila Bair the Serrano or Jalapeno see land throw and a little bit of lime juice in they knew. Serve it with it on the site. It was a terrific practice they also a Santa which is Pork Lard. Is that often used as a primary layer for lots of tacos enchiladas? Is that something that's common ingredient there. Okay largest one thing like Hitler this when you have a big piece of pork and then you take out the fat than you cook. It is slowly. And then you're renders fat right so that is large and then ASEAN thought when you're making teacher on the skin and you're buying it in large then at the bottom you will some pieces and beats over. You know the fat told and that's why it's colored it has it has color to the. You're not open a Tortilla. Like freshly made handmade of course and then you put a little bit of a layer of that and then you eat it with your meal Let's talk about the Tortilla for second in Oaxaca. According to a tee I guess in northern Mexico it's a wheat Tortilla but the tortillas in Oaxaca almost could pass for a week Tortilla. They're very fine. They're very tender. They're nothing like would you get here? So is that because you use different kinds of corn is the process differ. Why are they so much better a little bit of favorite thing? I is the the taste that they still do. Heirloom Cornyn in Mexico. Roy is one so sometimes. You taste the TORTILLAS here in United States. Then they're like sweet so that is wrong. Sorry that is like super wrong so that was one of the things that when we moved to the states and I began to as a Dorothy. Yes here like no by no means. I will be able to serve this in their restaurant every neighbor so you know thank God. We found now corn from Mexico many times from Oaxaca directly and so we proceeded in house and then we grind it. What would you like to tell me about the way you cook that? I don't understand. Well I guess you think that I have problem whether you notice plane. The people You know one is Mexican. Food is not necessarily too spicy. I mean depends on the taste of the taste. Parts of the person but general is just about the flavors The other one is it. People that have had through the years coming to restaurant. Said like this is not Mexican food. I mean for years. We didn't have a flour tortillas in the restaurant in is like oh no but this is not a not as well. How can I explain you? You know that the corner two years is the basic you know and it is your of the also very delicate flavors so those things I think is the what I would like people to understand better about Mexican Food

Mexico missed an opportunity to be a world leader in shifting a fishery over from Gillnets to alternative gear.
