On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: Houston-based oil refiner Citgo Petroleum could be auctioned off to the highest bidder after an appellate court ruling this week. We learn why it's happening and what it could mean both for the company’s local employees and the companies they do business with.

And we learn how difficult it is for asylum seekers in Mexico to secure an attorney as they wait for their day in immigration court.

Also this hour: We discuss the takeaways from the latest Democratic presidential debate, we learn about a settlement in the bail reform lawsuit against Harris County, and we discuss other stories in our weekly political roundup.

Plus, the Galveston Historical Foundation has released its annual list of endangered buildings in need of restoration.

And members of the Houston synth-pop duo Space Kiddettes perform a couple songs.
