The New Immigrants

Milwaukee Magazine originally published this article by Barbara Miner in the August 2015 issue.  The lead-in reads:  “Curtiss, Wisconsin, was settled more than 150 years ago by Norwegians and Germans. Today, most of its residents are from Mexico. Yet the divergent paths of immigration to this outstate farm town are more similar than you would think.”  Though focused on Wisconsin, it is not a story unique to only our state.
