Surfing in other forums, I found this strange case of a Mexican community in a part of the USA where you do not expect to find many Mexicans.

But the most interesting of the case, is that this community, Mexicantown is one of the few areas of ailing Detroit which instead of losing economy and population, currently is growing and this growth reflect in incoming businesses and more taxes to the city, and in general, a revitalization of the city.

But it is also the place where the ICE begins to work more actively to detect illegals and deport them.

I think is an interesting case.

The contradictions are very interesting... Mexicans that help to revitalize a City, that cannot kick them out as fast as fast as it wanted...
