The Stranger: Trump’s America Is 10 Miles South of Downtown Seattle

"n a recent Tuesday night in downtown Burien, Hugo Garcia and another Burien activist named Roxana Pardo Garcia (no relation to Hugo Garcia) took me on a tour of their city. Roxana Pardo Garcia showed me where her immigrant father opened up a shop that sold Selena cassettes. Both Garcias point out that El Rinconsito, the first well-known taqueria in King County and now a major chain, opened up business in Burien in 1997. Down the street used to be a panaderia, or bakery, and in neighboring White Center, an El Salvadorian opened up the region's first pupuseria. Farmworkers, Roxana Pardo Garcia remembered, would travel all the way to the area just to eat there."
