This summary was featured in Documented’s Early Arrival newsletter. You can subscribe to receive it in your inbox three times per week here. Maribel Lobato and her husband Santos Tinoco have owned Veracruz Mexican market in Monroe, Wisconsin, for 13 years. The pair often contract a handful of Latinos who immigrate to Monroe, which is 95 percent white, to work on dairy farms in the area. As one of just a few Latinos in the area, Lobato said she would offer them donated furniture, clothes and ways to connect with home. Small dairy farms in the state are closing as large farms take their place, and with them comes a need for a larger workforce. According to UMOS, immigrant workers make up about 40 percent of Wisconsin’s dairy farm workforce and 90 percent of them being undocumented. The Guardian.

Scared low-rise jeans are coming back? Well, brace yourself, 'cause Dove Cameron just kicked things up a notch and folded her denim over to create an even lower rise.
