Declaración del Rep. Cooper sobre la visita del presidente a Nashville

NASHVILLE – El congresista demócrata Jim Cooper ( TN- 5 ) emitió la siguiente declaración sobre la visita del Presidente Obama a esta ciudad :
” El Senado de Estados Unidos – incluyendo senadores Corker y Alexander – votaron abrumadoramente para hacer lo que el Presidente expuso hoy. Los representantes republicanos se han negado a considerar el proyecto de ley del Senado, pero tienen tres días más para permitir un voto aprobatorio o desaprobatorio, donde pasaría con una gran mayoría. Nuestra comunidad – incluyendo la Cámara de Comercio del Area de Nashville, la Universidad Lipscomb, la Iglesia Católica, la Convención Bautista del Sur y fundaciones familiares locales de caridad – apoya el objetivo de la integración de los inmigrantes en la comunidad en general Somos un modelo para el país.”

Cooper Statement on President’s Visit to Nashville

NASHVILLE – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-5) today issued the following statement:
“The U.S. Senate – including Senators Corker and Alexander – voted overwhelmingly to do what the President outlined today. House Republicans have refused to consider the Senate bill, but they have three more days to allow an up or down vote where it would pass with a large majority. Our community – including the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, Lipscomb University, the Catholic Church, the Southern Baptist Convention and local charitable family foundations – supports the goal of integrating immigrants into the wider community. We are a model for the country.”

UN LLAMADO A LA ATENCION DE LOS CONSUMIDORES LATINOS/HISPANOS


Colaboración de Mercedes Strollo, Hispanic Outreach Coordinator en Image.– Por favor tener cuidado de vendedores de carros usados que tienen letreros diciendo: “Buy Here, Pay Here” (Comprar Aquí, Pagar Aquí). Una compañía de carros usados en NC fueron enjuiciados por ofrecer ofertas desleales y términos predatorios, lo cual violan la Ley de Prácticas Comerciales Desleales y Engañosas (Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act). Aparte de estas violaciones también están siendo enjuiciados por discriminar hacia africanos-americanos. Estas compañías ofrecían precios inflados con interés bien altos y depósitos grandes sin importarle si el cliente podría hacer sus pagos mensuales. Estas prácticas resultaron en fallas de cumplimiento por parte del cliente haciendo que haya bastantes reposesiones de autos, también fallaron en dar notificación de reposesión adecuada. Llegaron a quitar autos de clientes que estaban puntuales con sus contratos y no devolvían reembolsos a tiempo. No devolvían artículos personales de los clientes en vehículos re-poseídos e instalaban mecánica global a escondidas en los autos para facilitar la reposesión de autos. Recuerden que estos malos comerciantes de autos usados quieren que usted falle de pagar para quedarse no solo con su depósito, si no ganar más con la reventa de su carro y la mayoría de veces usted se queda adeudándole por vida del contrato que usted FIRMO. Si saben de esta clase de vendedores repórtenlo a la Federal Trade Commission, www.ftc.org o llame al 877-382-4357, pídalo en español (la FTC no le importa su estatus inmigratorio).

Tres empleados de empresa de ayuda al inmigrante sentenciados por estafar a consumidores Buscando Servicios de Inmigración


Tres acusados ante un tribunal del Distrito Oeste de Missouri se han declarado culpables de fraude postal y electrónico en conexión con un ardid de fraude relacionado con servicios de inmigración y han sido condenados a penas que van desde 12 a 130 meses de prision federal, según un aviso público del Departamento de Justicia.

Los tres condenados eran trabajadores de Immigration Forms and Publications (IFP)- Formularios de Inmigración y Publicaciones, en español. Esta compañía estaba registrada en Sedalia, Missouri. Según el documento oficial, los condenados falsamente se presentaban a los consumidores diciendo que IFP estaba afiliada con el gobierno federal y que los representantes de ventas eran agentes de inmigración. Además, les decían que los honorarios pagados a IFP cubrían los honorarios de presentación de los documentos de inmigración y que IFP podría acelerar el proceso de la solicitud.

Thomas Laurence , de 31 años fue sentenciado a 130 meses de prisión ; Thomas Strawbridge , de 50 años, a 82 meses de prisión y Elizabeth Meredith, de 25 años, a un año y un día en prisión. Al sentenciar a los acusados, el juez consideró que ellos causaron perdidas a sus clientes por un total de más de $ 400.000. Por consiguiente, además del tiempo en prision, el tribunal ordenó a los tres acusados a pagar un total de $613,969 dólares en restitución a las víctimas.

“Los inmigrantes que vienen a este país y tratan de seguir las reglas merecen un trato justo ante la ley – a no ser estafados por aquellos que buscan el dinero fácil”, dijo Stuart F. Delery, Fiscal General Adjunto de la División Civil del Departamento de Justicia . “Estamos encantados de haber trabajado con nuestros asociados de las fuerzas del orden para llevar ante la justicia a los líderes de esta operación fraudulenta”.

“Ellos atacaban a los inmigrantes legales quienes estaban haciendo todo lo posible para cumplir con la ley” dijo la Fiscal de EE.UU. para el Distrito Oeste de Missouri, Tammy Dickinson.

De acuerdo con el expediente judicial , Strawbridge fundó y es propietario de IFP, que funcionó entre 2009 y 2010 . La compañía vendía los formularios de inmigración , que generalmente están disponibles sin costo, a los inmigrantes que usan sus servicios fraudulentos . Los representantes dijeron falsamente a los consumidores que la empresa contaba con asistentes legales que podían ayudar a los clientes a llenar correctamente los formularios de inmigración , y que las formas adquiridas a través de IFP serían procesadas con mayor rapidez que si los consumidores trataban directamente con inmigración.

Tennessee Voters Support Senate Immigration Bill 3-to-1!


By Eben Cathey [eben@tnimmigrant.org]

Nashville – According to the results of Harper Polling, an independent polling firm, over three-fourths of Tennessee voters support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented workers and families already here. Over three-fourths also think the bill currently in Congress is tough but fair, and want Senators Alexander and Corker to support it.

The poll offered several questions relating to immigration reform, including “How important is it that the U.S. fix its immigration system this year?” to which 91% of respondents answered “important” (71%) to “somewhat important” (20%). Tennesseans overwhelmingly showed support for an earned pathway to citizenship if undocumented immigrants meet certain requirements, with 77% of respondents showing “strong” (46%) to “somewhat” (31%) support for a legalization process that includes citizenship. The bill is being considered and debated today on the floor of the US Senate.

The following is a statement from Stephen Fotopulos, the Executive Director of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition:

“The will of Tennessee voters is clear. We want Congress to do its job, make sense of our immigration laws this year, and finally bring order to the system. Undocumented immigrants are already in our state working hard and raising families, just waiting for the chance to get in line and on the books, and start the long, tough path to citizenship.”

Red Cross and First Tennessee Partner for Save-A-Life Saturday, Heart of TN

The Tennessee Volunteer Region will be hosting an upcoming Save-A-Life Saturday event on April 20th, thanks to a generous $25,000 grant given by the First Tennessee Foundation.

“We want to sincerely thank our community partners at First Tennessee Bank for making this day possible,” said Regional CEO, Joel Sullivan. “Their support for this event will strengthen our community by training and empowering our friends and neighbors to respond to emergencies.”

The event will be offered at 4 First Tennessee Bank branch locations throughout Middle Tennessee at 9, 10 and 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 20th. Each session includes a FREE, non-certification, hands-only CPR course that also includes training on how to respond to conscious choking victims. Registration is required. Please log on to:redcross.org/savealifesaturday2013 or call 615.250.4277 for more information. The 11 a.m. session at the Murfreesboro location will be offered in Spanish.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), one of the leading causes of death in the United States, strikes over 300,000 victims each year, of which about five percent survive. Studies have shown that being trained in hands-only CPR can make the lifesaving difference when someone suffers sudden cardiac arrest. Hands-only CPR is a potentially lifesaving technique involving no mouth to mouth contact. It is best used in emergencies where someone has seen another person suddenly collapse. The hands-only technique increases the likelihood of surviving cardiac emergencies that occur outside medical settings. The Red Cross is able to provide this free training through the generous support of the First Tennessee Foundation.

“This is invaluable and important training that we’re proud to help provide in partnership with the American Red Cross. Every person trained is a potential life-saver,” said Phil Holt, First Tennessee Community President, Rutherford County. “We are honored to be a partner in this endeavor and commend the Red Cross for leading it.”

Those unable to attend a Save-a-Life Saturday event can also visitwww.redcross.org/prepare/hands-only-cpr to see lifesaving skills being taught or download the official American Red Cross First Aid app available for iPhone and Android devices. The American Red Cross First Aid app provides instant access to the information on how handle the most common first aid emergencies. The public can also register to take a full, certified CPR course at www.redcross.org/take-a-class or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. The free training will take place at the following First Tennessee Bank location:

Murfreesboro Main Office

305 West Northfield Blvd.

Murfreesboro, TN 37129

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Catholic Charities Introduces CHAP Family Services to Bedford County

Program Offers Home-based Counseling and Parenting Training

SHELBYVILLE, TN – Catholic Charities of Tennessee has introduced its Creating Hope by Assisting Parents (CHAP) program to Bedford County, according to Marie Gilland, Child Welfare Services program coordinator for the agency. The program serves families whose primary language is Spanish.

CHAP provides parenting education, crisis intervention, and case management for families experiencing life stressors that impact parenting abilities,” said Gilland. “One of the unique aspects of Catholic Charities’ CHAP program is that the CHAP counselor goes to the client.” Catholic Charities also operates CHAP initiatives in Davidson and Montgomery Counties.

Elena Brizuela will serve as Catholic Charities’ inaugural CHAP parent counselor in Bedford County. Before joining Catholic Charities late last year, she was with South Central Human Resource Agency’s Head Start program in Bedford County. Brizuela is based in Bedford County and has seven years of Family Service experience.

CHAP counselors use the Nurturing Program and Five Protective Factors to promote better parenting skills and strengthen families,” explained Brizuela. “With this program, parents are educated about normal developmental stages and how to care for and discipline their children in appropriate ways.”

Weekly services are provided in the home, so parents have an opportunity to practice the skills they are learning in a natural setting,” Brizuela continued. The project is funded under an agreement with the State of Tennessee Department of Children’s Services.

The CHAP program serves families with children from infancy to age 8. Some of the more common topics addressed include child development, communication, nurturing and caring, and family routines. There is no fee for this service and it is not time limited. Services are available to Bedford County families, without regard to religious, ethnic, racial, or cultural background.

For more information on Catholic Charities’ CHAP/Bedford County program, call 931-801-7770 or link to Catholic Charities of Tennessee at http://www.cctenn.org/services/children/parenting-services.

KTA holds public hearing on proposed elimination of express route

The Knoxville Transportation Authority will hold a public hearing on Thursday, July 26, 2012 to hear comments on the proposed elimination of KAT’s Route 101X – The Cedar Bluff Express.  The route has suffered from low ridership for the past twenty-four months, consistently in the lowest performance quartile, but more recently, KAT was informed that the route would no longer be able to use the current Park & Ride location on Executive Park Drive, effective September 30, 2012.

 

“While we don’t want to see any of our services go away, we have to be realistic about the track record of this particular route, as well as the challenges associated with offering park & ride services,” says Cindy McGinnis, KAT General Manager.  “Finding a park & ride lot is the most challenging part of providing express route services, and while we have worked on identifying a new location, we have not found anything that will work.”

 

KAT does not purchase or lease locations for park & ride facilities due to budget constraints, so park & ride lots must be provided through an agreement with a private property owner, or, in the case of the Farragut Express, by the Town of Farragut. 

 

If approved for elimination, the route will end effective September 30, 2012.  Current 101X passengers are encouraged to use the 102X – Farragut Express or the Route 11 – Kingston Pike bus.

 

The public is encouraged to comment on the proposal.  Comments can be made by attending the meeting, scheduled for Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. in the Main Assembly Room of the City County Building, 400 Main Street.  Comments can also be made to KAT by calling  865-637-3000 or by visitingkatbus.com and clicking on the “Contact us” link.

2012 World’s Longest Yardsale Set For August 2nd – 5th


 

The 25th Annual “World’s Longest Yardsale” Now 690 Miiles!

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the sale, now stretching from 5 miles north of Addison, Michigan all the way down to Gadsden, Alabama!

The US 127 Corridor Sale started in 1987. It now runs from 5 miles north of Addison, MI, south to Chattanooga, TN, then switches to the Lookout Mountain Parkway, continuing to Gadsden, AL for a total of 690 miles!.

The Fentress County Chamber of Commerce in Jamestown, Tennessee has served as headquarters for the 127 Corridor Sale since 1995. We are centrally located along the route. Fentress County can also claim the origin of the sale. Mike Walker, the County Executive in 1987, came up with the idea of the sale, worked hard to make it happen, and planned for it to be an annual event.

The four day sale always starts on the first Thursday in August making dates for the 25th annual sale to be August 2-5, 2012. The sale is very popular, and visitors from several foreign countries have attended.

The original intent of the sale was to prove the back roads have something to offer, and that the interstate system was not the only mode for travel. County officials put together a list of attractions along the route in Kentucky and Tennessee. There are over three hundred attractions along the route to provide enjoyment for the family. Whether it be majestic hills, beautiful scenery, river boats, railroads, toe tapping music, arts, crafts, horses, fishing, hiking, bits of Civil War or Indian History, there are many opportunities to enjoy the beauty and culture of the land along the 127 Sale Route.

The Lookout Mountain Parkway Association asked to be included in the sale route a few years after the sale began. The Lookout Mountain Parkway leaves Chattanooga as Highway 58 and becomes several different highway numbers before reaching Gadsden. It is no longer US 127, but is the same great sale. This routing crosses the Northwest corner of Georgia, going into Cloudland. This added another 100 miles to the already existing 350 miles, thus making it 450 miles — “The World’s Longest Yard Sale”.

Thousands of people participate in the sale each year as vendors. A front lawn may be turned into a showcase as items are displayed. Off road parking is essential, and many of the homes have this space. Visitors should honor requests of “No Parking” or “No Trespassing” posted by families not participating in the sale–cars can leave deep tire ruts on a soft lawn.

As the sale developed, a vacant field, at a good location has proven to be an excellent place to rent as vendor space. This yields a cluster of sellers at one spot and reduces the stop and park routine of the buyers. Such areas can be spotted from a distance because of the activity. Community parks, such at the South Fentress Park, are proving to be ideal for a grouping of vendors, as good parking and restrooms are available.

People come from near and far to view this spectacular event. Folks come from all across the country by car, truck, motor home or plane. Some fly in, rent a car, travel the route and ship the newfound treasures back home. Some pull a trailer behind a truck, park the trailer somewhere and run around in the truck seeking items. Pulling a trailer will often limit the places you can visit. A large vehicle may prove to be a problem on this two-lane highway. Traffic congestion is part of the annual phenomenon to be endured, but the chance of finding a treasure lures them on. Many visitors plan their vacations around the sale event, with some traveling the entire 450 miles. Others may opt to spend their time in a selected area, and venture off the beaten path to discover the history and charm of the land.

Whatever the mode of travel you may choose, please do expect plenty of traffic. The pace may slow to that of snarled rush hour traffic. It may be bumper to bumper with everyone stretching their neck to see what is on a seller’s table or in the front lawn. Do expect sudden stops to occur without warning, and drive carefully and defensively. Enjoy the spot wherever you are, because down the road a few miles may be a space where no vendors are set up and the traffic will move along as usual. You are here to enjoy the sale and most of the other vehicles are too.

Some book motel rooms a year in advance. A few weeks prior to the sale date, most of the motel rooms are taken. Bed and Breakfast type lodgings do a brisk business during this sale, with most any type of overnight lodging being filled each night. Southern hospitality has lead to couples being taken into private homes because nothing else was available. Some visitors to the sale try to find lodging when and where needed. Some find cancellations, some go up to fifty miles, to the right or left of the sale route, to spend the night. Some even sleep in their car. However, these are considered small inconveniences in light of the excitement of finding the deal of the day & anticipation of a big shopping spree.

A few dislike the snarled traffic associated with the sale, but all must admit, the sale is good for the economy along the corridor route. Locals sell their crafts, accommodations are filled, restaurants are crowded, and those renting vendor spaces also add to the local economy. Those who want to break away from the sale may want to visit the local attractions.

For more information regarding the annual Hwy 127 Corridor Sale are encouraged to visit our website at www.127sale.com . Brochures can be obtained by calling 1-800-327-3945, however, there is more information on the website than we are able to put in the brochures.

Ritchie Tractor to host John Deere Drive Green ride and drive event


Guests can test drive tractors, register to win John Deere 1023E utility tractor

 

MARYVILLE, Tenn.—April 23, 2012— Tractor City in Maryville, Tenn., is hosting a Drive Green Challenge event Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1746 W. Lamar Alexander Parkway in Maryville.

 

Ritchie Tractor’s Drive Green Challenge event is one of many to be held across the nation. Dealer representatives will be on hand to demonstrate both John Deere and competitive equipment and answer questions. 

 

Mike Williams, marketing manager at Ritchie Tractor says one of the most popular features of the Drive Green events is the chance for customers to drive the equipment, kick the tires and speak with knowledgeable equipment experts.

 

“The Drive Green events give customers a one-stop opportunity to size up different utility tractors so they can find out exactly what horsepower tractor will best fit their property and the jobs they want to accomplish,” Williams says. “It’s a great way to understand how to choose the right size attachments and implements so that they get the most from their equipment investment.”

 

Williams adds, “At the same time, we want to make our event a fun and informative experience for everyone who attends.”

 

As an added incentive, people who attend the Drive Green event can register to win a John Deere 1023E Compact Utility Tractor with loader and box blade, which will be given away in October.  Admission is free and no pre-registration is required to attend.

 

For more information about the Drive Green Challenge event at Ritchie Tractor in Maryville, Tenn. contact Mike Williams at             (865) 981-3199       or visit the Drive Green website atwww.JohnDeere.com/DriveGreen.

ILLINOIS LATINO VOTERS WILL BE THE VOICE FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS


Chicago, IL– Yesterday, DREAMers and allies gathered at the Rebano Church in Chicago, Illinois.  Pastor Santiago, an Evangelical preacher, opened on how Chicago is a welcoming city in a welcoming state, and drew stark contrasts with Alabama and Arizona. Pastor Santiago then spoke about how Republicans were using religion when it was convenient, such as stirring up the base on abortion, but ignore Jesus when they craft immigration policy.  He warned the GOP presidential candidates that they shouldn’t cloak themselves in Christian rhetoric while ignoring his message on families and announced that he would stand by undocumented immigrants and against the GOP presidential candidates who are attacking immigrant communities. 
 
Fanny Lopez-Martinez took the podium next. Fanny, who is now working toward a master’s degree in public policy at the University of Chicago, is also an undocumented student married to an Army veteran who had just returned from Afghanistan.  She spoke about how worrisome it was knowing that anytime she would be placed into deportation proceedings.  Her husband, David Martinez, stated that it multiplied his anxiety while abroad, not knowing how much of his family he’d be able to come back to.  She talked about how she worked hard to support him, and how there were other undocumented military families who were struggling in the same way unnecessarily.
 
After his win in Puerto Rico, Mitt Romney pointed that his victory means that Latinos are willing to support a Republican candidate. However, he is either completely delusional about his appeal amongst Latino, or lying about his ability to pull in Latinos.  Although Romney won the 20 delegates that Puerto Rico has to offer, this is amongst conservative Puerto Rican voters who actually show up to primaries only.  Further, Puerto Ricans who live in Puerto Rico have different attitudes about immigration because they don’t have to try to vote for whomever is willing to let their parents stay in the country. What makes Romney’s victory even less impressive is the way that Rick Santorum could not connect with Puerto Ricans at all: he believed that there is a federal legal requirement to be able to speak English. 
 
In the end, Mitt Romney and the GOP candidates appear to ignore the reality when it comes to the issues Latinos care about. David Martinez, Fanny’s husband and military veteran, best described this when he clearly made known that although her wife cannot vote, her voice is his vote and would be voting against those who advocate breaking families apart.
