Why Newburgh?

There's an interview in the April 23 Texas Observer with Alex Rivera, the director of The Sixth Section. People working in Newburgh raise funds and send money home to benefit their home town of Boqueron (in what state?), in the form of such amenities as electricity, an ambulance, and a 2,000-seat baseball stadium. Apparently, the members of Grupo Union, the benevolent society, work construction, do restaurant work, and drive cabs.
