Fourth of July Immigration & Patriotism Edition

rooftop, originally uploaded by Shield.
Yesterday I made a trip up to Clinton Hill to visit Jose Campos, who owns a flat tire fix shop on Myrtle. He's an immigrant from El Salvador who has decorated his flat tire shop with American flags, family photos, tchotchkes, and handwritten signs in Spanish and English testifying that "Jesus is Love" and stating the prices to patch a tire or plug a tire leak. He and his shop are truly amazing.

You can see the full set here.
