Lincoln Park Has Become A New Melting Pot For Mexican Immigrants

Mexican immigrants are credited with opening restaurants, shops and otherwise keeping Southwest Detroit densely populated. But as of late, immigrants that have called Southwest Detroit home for decades are now moving in droves to Lincoln Park.

WDET’s Martina Guzman went to Lincoln Park, to see what Mexican businesses are opening there, and why recent Immigrants from Mexico chose this particular city to set up shop. While most of the business owners she spoke with are happy to call Lincoln Park home… they still consider Southwest Detroit the heart of the Mexican community and go there regularly to shop, attend Sunday mass and visit family.
