SIOUX CENTER, Iowa—Olivia’s Bakery is one of several immigrant-owned businesses on North Main Avenue in Sioux Center, Iowa. The Mexican bakery sits two doors down from a clothing shop run by a woman whose Dutch ancestry goes back generations. Around the corner sits Las Palmas, a Mexican grocery, and across the street, the Netherlands Reformed Congregation building. Behind the block looms a grain elevator.
