Of Diaspora, Political Economy, and the Politics of Mexican America
This book concludes by showing how Tejanos played an increasingly important political and social role in the manufacturing-based economy of Milwaukee while Crystal City experienced decades of stagnation and decline. Even as that city underwent the deindustrialization common to the large cities of the Midwest and Northeast, Tejano and other Latino migrants increasingly settled in and found jobs there and in surrounding areas. Perhaps most important, Tejanos experienced mobility in Milwaukee, as many from Crystal City and South Texas found work as managers at social service agencies and small businesses, and in politics as representatives and activists for a diverse Latino community. As that community grew larger in Wisconsin, it continued to struggle with issues of discrimination and poverty, and increasingly confronted immigration issues.
