The fates of undocumented immigrant workers and Wisconsin's $43 billion dairy industry are closely intertwined – and both are grappling with their options for survival as Trump administration policies increase their fears of ICE raids, deportations and separation of children from their families.
Los Lecheros - Trailer
About the FilmA collaboration between Twelve Letter Films and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, Los Lecheros gets to the heart of the relationship between farmers, undocumented immigrant workers, families, activists, and a state economy as they all respond to the pressures of anti-immigrant threats and legislation. Los Lecheros is a timely document of a community working both for and against its own best interests.
