La Vida de La Villita: The Life of Little Village

Dan Rowell

South Side Weekly has partnered with 90 Days, 90 Voices to bring you “La Vida de La Villita: The Life of Little Village.” Little Village is home to an estimated twenty thousand undocumented immigrants, more than in any other neighborhood in Chicago. It is also home to the largest commercial strip outside of Michigan Avenue, contributing $900 million each year to Chicago’s economy. But changes in immigration policies under President Donald Trump and increased fears of deportation have hit the neighborhood hard.
