Traficantes latinos encarcelados


Nashville, Tenn.–Seis jóvenes latinos están ‘tras las rejas’ por cargos de delito mayor de distribución de drogas como resultado de una investigación de cuatro meses sobre la distribución de cocaína en Nashville y el área de Middle Tennessee. Detectives de estupefacientes asignados a la división especializada de investigaciones, determinaron que grandes cantides de cocaína estaban siendo trasladadas en esta región por carro y autobús. Durante la ejecución de órdenes de cateo este jueves, los detectives incautaron más de 2 kilos de cocaína valuados en unos $100,000, $23,000 en efectivo, 3 pistolas y 5 vehículos. La investigación demostró que la cocaína era distribuida desde una residencia en el norte de la Avenida 51 y era escondida en un apartamento del Sur de Nashville, donde la población hispana es abundante.
Los encarcelados son:
· Jesus Vásquez, de 31 años;
· Christian Ramírez-García, de 23;
· Ulyllis Ballejo-Ramírez, de 20;
· Yuri Garcia-Ramirez, de 26;
· Ivan Garcia-Ramírez, de 22; y
· Omar Ramirez-Maldando, de 22.
No se ha difundido si los encarcelados estan en el país legal o ilegalmente. En la investigación participaron Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) y TBI.

Nota de la redacción: Mientras estos jóvenes hispanos trafican y se embolsan miles de dolares procedentes de la distribución de cocaína, cabe recordar que millones de latinos/hispanos sin documentos de permanencia legal en este país se afanan por encontrar un empleo que por lo general es uno que otros ni siquiera consideran solicitar, para proveer para sus esposas e hijos. Los desgraciados añaden manchas a la reputación de los hispanos inmigrantes que se quiebran las espaldas para traer el pan de cada dia a sus mesas.

English

The investigation showed that cocaine was being distributed from a residence on 51st Avenue North and was stashed at a South Nashville apartment.
Charged are:
· Jeu Vasquez, 31, of 51st Avenue North;
· Christian Ramirez-Garcia, 23, of Lincoln Drive in Hermitage;
· Ulyllis Ballejo-Ramirez, 20, of Whispering Hills Drive;

Año Nuevo cuenta un herido de bala en condición crítica


Nashville, Tenn.– Un tiroteo en la madrugada del viernes afuera de Club La Parranda localizado en 2033 Antioch Pike dejó como saldo a un hombre herido de bala y en estado muy crítico.
La víctima identificada como Jorge Lizanna, de 30 años, de Packard Drive, fue llevada al Centro Medico de la Universidad Vanderbilt.
Según el reporte policial, funcionarios del Precinto Sur respondieron a una llamada a las 5:46 am en el Nuevo Año y encontraron a Lizanna herido sentado en el asiento del conductor de su vehículo.

La investigación señala que un amigo de Lizanna, Jesús Reyes-Pablo, 25 años, de Heritage Drive, se bajó del auto de Lizanna y disparó tiros al aire, lo que provocó una respuesta de los guardias de seguridad del Club La Parranda. Al parece algunos de los guardias de seguridad dispararon en la dirección de Reyes- Pablo. Durante el tiroteo, Lizanna resultó gravemente herido.

Todas las personas involucradas en este incidente han sido identificadas. Las circunstancias que rodearon el tiroteo y permanecen bajo investigación.
Reyes-Pablo fue arrestado con un cargo de delito grave de imprudencia temeraria. Su fianza se fijó en $ 5,000.

Mientras tanto, entre las comunidades hispanas en el estado, se podría estar identificando esta acción de disparar al aire en el Año Nuevo como algo cultural y arraigado en las mentes de muchos que por alguna razón olvidan que ya no están en sus países de origen y que el uso de armas de fuego produce muertes y heridos, aún sin intención.

ENGLISH

Gunfire early Friday outside Club La Parranda at 2033 Antioch Pike wounded one man who is in extremely critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The victim is identified as Jorge Lizanna, 30, of Packard Drive.
South Precinct officers responded to the club at 5:46 a.m. Lizanna was found wounded in the driver’s seat of his vehicle. The investigation to this point shows that Lizanna’s friend, Jesus Reyes-Pablo, 25, of Heritage Drive, got out of Lizanna’s car and fired shots into the air, prompting a response by Club La Parranda security guards. It appears that at least some of the security guards fired in the direction of Reyes-Pablo. During the gunfire, Lizanna was hit.
All of the persons involved have been identified. The circumstances surrounding the shooting and whose weapon wounded Lizanna remain under investigation.
Reyes-Pablo was arrested on a charge of felony reckless endangerment. His bond is set at $5,000.

Capturado posible asesino en Nashville


Nashville, Tenn. El sospechoso del asesinato a tiros de Ricky Burgett Jr. ha sido capturado en Nashville.
Aaron Dale Dodson, de 22 años, era buscado por su participación en el asesinato a tiros de Burgett, el 21 de septiembre de 2014. El suceso fatal ocurrió durante un robo en el interior del apartamento de Burgett en Welshwood Dr.

Según el reporte policial, el oficial Jason King del prescinto central detuvo al conductor de un vehículo con una placa vencida la noche del sábado en la calle South 1st Street cerca de Woodland Street. Durante la investigación, el pasajero del asiento delantero fue identificado como Dodson, pese a que inicialmente había dado un nombre falso.
Dodson, está acusado de homicidio criminal y está detenido con una fianza de $ 540,000 dólares.
En el momento del asesinato de Burgett, Dodson estaba libre bajo fianza por cargos de robo agravado y robo con agravantes derivados de un arresto en enero de 2014. En ese caso, Dodson fue acusado de haber enfrentado a una mujer a punta de pistola en el porche de su casa en Oak Court antes de ordenarle que entrara, robándole y robando la residencia.

Otro implicado en el asesinato de Burgett es Oral Patterson, de 19 años, quien permanece arrestado desde octubre.

La elegancia de la Dinastía Tang desplegada en escena


La producción de un gran espectáculo: destreza, trabajo duro y un corazón puro

Por Matthew Little –

La Gran Época

China fue llamada la “Tierra Divina” (Shen Zhou), porque las personas creían que la cultura china era un legado de los Cielos. Durante la Época Dorada de China, durante la Dinastía Tang, la virtud era altamente estimada y la sociedad prosperaba. El confucionismo, el taoísmo y el budismo florecieron, era una época de conocimiento y belleza, de grandes artistas, científicos instruidos, y líderes nobles… Pero con el paso del tiempo, los valores morales de la sociedad declinaron, China se vio acosada por confusiones internas y corrupción, y gradualmente las personas no siguieron más la voluntad del Cielo, muchas de las preciadas creencias y tradiciones se perdieron.

Pero en el 2006, la compañía Shen Yun Performing Arts, un movimiento cultural deseoso por recuperar la cultura china largamente olvidada devuelve al mundo una época en que los seres humanos ponían el énfasis en la nobleza, la lealtad y la honestidad. Hoy, presenta 5,000 años de historia a través de una multitud de tradiciones populares y danzas de la corte real.

Coloridos vestidos auténticos

La vestimenta, el peinado y otros accesorios del vestir no sólo son una forma de cubrir el cuerpo, sino que principalmente reflejan el pensamiento de una persona, su cultura y su respeto por los dioses. Shen Yun despliega ante el público la belleza y el lado positivo de la naturaleza humana a través del vestuario y los peinados de las dinastías chinas más bellas.

El vestuario comienza con un concepto de la danza en una dinastía determinada y debe ser fiel a la historia de ese tiempo. Los diseñadores estudian, dibujan y fabrican trajes que sean fieles históricamente y a la vez que resulten flexibles y bien confeccionados para adaptarse a los movimientos de los bailarines sin romperse. El desafío se hace aún mayor si se tiene en cuenta que estos trajes van a dar la vuelta al mundo y van a ser llevados por las bailarinas durante más de 120 representaciones por 60 ciudades del mundo, como sucedió en la gira del 2009.

Escenografía de alta tecnología para presentar una cultura milenaria

La danza y el deslumbrante vestuario necesitan un ambiente histórico. La lealtad al pasado recibe un impulso que combina alta tecnología, fotografía y montaje. El espectáculo utiliza esta mezcla para crear un fondo animado que lleva el paisaje y la arquitectura de la antigua China a los teatros mundiales.

Los escenógrafos de Shen Yun Performing Arts, entienden que cada pequeño detalle tiene que ser exacto. Un artículo de la Dinastía Ming o de la Dinastía Qing no puede estar en un edificio de la Dinastía Tang, esto requiere el trabajo de búsqueda de libros y pinturas que ayuden a iluminar la historia para lograr representaciones fieles.

Por supuesto, hay otros elementos que también juegan un papel importante, las flores de loto gigantes en los que se sientan los Budas y las banderas y espadas que también deben ser fieles a la historia. Y claro, también hay un año de ardua preparación para la Orquesta de Shen Yun Performing Arts, la única orquesta que combina instrumentos orientales con occidentales… pero esa es otra historia.

“Nuestro negocio está determinado por el compromiso de tomar productos y servicios que son complejos y costosos y hacerlos fáciles y accesibles,” dijo Daniel Eckert, vicepresidente senior de servicios de Walmart U.S. “Muy a menudo nuestros clientes tienen que decidirse por pólizas de seguro de autos que no son la mejor opción para ellos y cuestan más de lo que ellos quieren  pagar. Con AutoInsurance.com, estamos ayudando a nuestros clientes a ahorrar dinero en uno de sus mayores gastos del hogar de una forma nueva, rápida y fácil.”

“Actualmente, casi el 90 por ciento de las personas comparan precios en línea antes de comprar productos y servicios como boletos de avión, pero los datos de nuestro estudio muestran que sólo una de cada cinco personas compara precios de seguros de auto,” dijo Joshua Kazam, fundador of AutoInsurance.com. “Queremos hacer que la comparación de precios de seguros de autos sea mucho más simple y rápida para todo aquel que quiera ahorrar dinero en sus primas de seguros. Creemos firmemente en el poder de la comparación, pues es así que te das cuenta que obtuviste un buen precio en tu seguro de auto.

Un Solo Lugar para Comprar Seguro de Auto

A diferencia de un generador de ofertas, AutoInsurance.com ofrece acceso rápido y fácil a la experiencia de compra de seguro de auto permitiéndole así a los clientes comparar y comprar pólizas reales, todo en un solo lugar. Así es cómo funciona:

Cuando los clientes se registran en el sitio en linea,  solo tienen que dar su nombre, dirección, fecha de nacimiento e información de contacto.

Pueden decidir si quieren que el sitio obtenga los datos de su póliza de seguro de auto actual. Esto permite a AutoInsurance.com llenar automáticamente la mayoría de la información de cobertura y proporcionar una comparación directa.

En sólo minutos, se le proporcionan al cliente varias cotizaciones de los proveedores líderes. Ellos pueden personalizar su cobertura, incluyendo deducibles y ver estas opciones reflejadas inmediatamente en las cotizaciones.

Ellos pueden elegir si quieren comprar la póliza en línea inmediatamente, hablar con un agente autorizado al 800-700-7500, o guardar la información y efectuar la compra después. No existe ningún costo o compromiso por usar el servicio.

Los clientes sólo serán contactados en el futuro por AutoInsurance.com o el proveedor de la póliza que ellos compraron.

“Proporcionar a nuestros clientes acceso a una amplia selección – desde alimentos hasta llantas – a precios bajos y en un solo lugar es por lo que somos reconocidos. Estamos trayendo la misma mentalidad de compra en un solo lugar a la industria de seguros de auto con AutoInsurance.com,” agregó Eckert.

Cómo Se Inició

AutoInsurance.com, que es operado por una agencia licenciada de seguros de vida y propiedad, fue creada después de que Walmart tuviera la idea de que necesitaba haber una mejor forma para que los clientes comparen, compren y ahorren en seguro de autos. Como el minorista exclusivo y socio de comercialización de AutoInsurance.com, los clientes de Walmart podrán tener acceso al servicio directamente de su sitio en línea:www.walmart.com/autoinsurance.

Obstáculos Existentes y Oportunidades para Consumidores Más Jóvenes

De acuerdo a un estudio nacional encargado por AutoInsurance.com, que entrevistó a más de 5,000 conductores, aproximadamente la mitad de los que contestaron sentían que ellos pagan demasiado por sus seguros – incluyendo el de salud y auto –  más que cualquier otro gasto mensual.

El mismo estudio también encontró que las primas de seguro de auto tienen un efecto alto en las finanzas de la generación del milenio que usan el internet sin mayor esfuerzo y que son una gran parte de los compradores en línea.  

Uno de cada cinco de la generación del milenio – comparado con sólo uno de cada ocho baby boomers – gasta el 10 por ciento o más de su ingreso mensual en su seguro de auto.

La generación del milenio especialmente, enfrenta obstáculos para comprar una nueva póliza. El estudio encontró que 42 por ciento de los de la generación del milenio dicen que no tienen confianza al tomar la decisión de compra de su seguro de auto, comparado con 81 por ciento de los baby boomers que se sienten confiados.

Más de la mitad de los que respondieron tampoco sienten que los ahorros justifican el esfuerzo y el tiempo que toma el comparar precios antes de comprar.

“Cada consumidor merece la oportunidad de poder ahorrar dinero en su seguro de auto,” dijo Kazam. “Lo que estamos haciendo es traer transparencia y simplicidad al proceso y a la experiencia de compra.”

NASHVILLE APARTMENTS PAY OVER $150,000 SETTLING A DISCRIMINATION CASE


NASHVILLE– The popular Clairmont Apartments -a 233 unit apartment complex located at 1019 Patricia Drive Nashville, TN 37217  will pay more than $170,000 as part of a settlement resolving allegations that it discriminated against Hispanic tenants based on their national origin.

The Fair Housing Act makes it unlawful to impose different rental terms and conditions based on national origin, race, color, religion, sex, familial status, or disability.

“Since 1968, the Fair Housing Act has prohibited national origin discrimination, including evicting tenants or denying them service because of their ancestry,” said John Trasviña, HUD Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.  “Central to HUD’s mission is to ensure that every person has the right to housing free from discrimination. Today’s settlement advances that goal.”

After being told about the complex’s discriminatory rental practices, HUD filed a Secretary-initiated complaint alleging that TriTex Real Estate Advisors, Inc., of Atlanta, and its management company terminated lease agreements, ignored maintenance requests, and intimidated and harassed Hispanic tenants.

Under the terms of the agreement, the manager and owner will establish a $150,000 victims’ compensation fund for former residents administered by an independent agency and to pay $10,000 each to two non-profit organizations – the Tennessee Fair Housing Council and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) – to identify potential claimants. In addition, TriTex and its management company will adopt fair housing policies and its employees will undergo fair housing training.
Note: Contact on this release is Shantae Goodloe (202) 708-0685.

The Clairmont Apartments was the site of a controversial immigration raid in October of 2010 when ICE agents arrested 20 alleged undocumented residents. The next year by December of 2011 its owners Atlanta-based Tritex sold it at a millionaire lost for $2.8 million to Stone Ridge Apartments LLC.

Persons who believe they have experienced discrimination may file a complaint by contacting HUD’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity at (800) 669-9777 (voice) or (800) 927-9275 (TTY). Housing discrimination complaints may also be filed by going to www.hud.gov/fairhousing, or by downloading HUD’s free housing discrimination mobile application, which can be accessed through Apple devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

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.

Kickoff events planned for World breastfeeding week


Nashville

On Saturday, August 4 at 10:00am, Nashville area moms will join moms from 11 countries participating in The Big Latch On, a global breastfeeding initiative that allows communities to show support to moms.

All nursing mothers and moms-to-be are invited to Hadley Park Recreation Center from 10:00am-11:30am to enjoy wellness information, refreshments, and peer support.

The Big Latch On, the main event, will take place at 10:30am. This free community event is sponsored by the Nashville Breastfeeding Coalition, NashVitality, Metro Public Health Department and Julie’s Village.

The Big Latch On is scheduled during World Breastfeeding Week, August 1-7. Governor Haslam recently signed a proclamation officially recognizing World Breastfeeding Week in Tennessee.

“The Nashville Breastfeeding Coalition accepts projects that make a direct impact to the community. We feel lucky to be supporting breastfeeding mothers and helping to educate moms-to-be at this event.

Marcie Singleton Award Recognizes Efforts on Behalf of Breastfeeding Mothers and Their Babies

 To kick off World Breastfeeding Week (Aug. 1-7), the East Tennessee Breastfeeding Coalition (ETBC) is hosting an “Ages and Stages” themed celebration at New Harvest Park, 4775 New Harvest Lane, on Aug. 1 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. At 12:30, ETBC will be presenting the Marcie Singleton Award in recognition to a business or organization that best provided for the needs of breastfeeding mothers and their babies. Knox County Public Library is this year’s recipient. The event is free and open to the public. Breastfeeding mothers and moms-to-be are encouraged to attend.

 “We are very honored to be recognized as an employer who values breast-feeding,” said Myretta Black, Knox County Public Library director. “Giving children a healthy start through proper nutrition can set a tone for life. Research is clear that breast-feeding babies is one of the most important foundations to good health.” 

 Marcie Singleton was the Nutrition Director and Breastfeeding Coordinator for the Knox County Health Department’s Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). She was a tireless advocate for mothers’ and babies’ rights to breastfeed. Her work included consultation with businesses to build lactation programs using the Business Case for Breastfeeding, a comprehensive program designed to educate employers about the value of supporting breastfeeding employees in the workplace. Last year’s award recipient was the Knoxville office of Lattimore, Black, Morgan & Cain (LBMC), a firm that provides accounting, human resources, technology, staffing and investment advisory services.  In 2010, ETBC recognized East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and EdFinancial. 

 As part of the “Ages and Stages” theme, participants will be able to visit booths with information and activities related to the baby’s age and stage in life, starting with newborn and going all the way to two years old, which is the World Health Organization’s recommendation for breastfeeding. Here is a list of booth sponsors:

 0-3 months &frac34; Fluff and Stuff, baby wearing items and ideas
3-6 months
&frac34; Knox County Health Department’s WIC program and Dietitian Sarah Griswold, back to work
6-9 months
&frac34; Lisa Ross Breastfeeding Center, mama craft making nursing necklaces
9-12 months
&frac34; Amy Dever, UT Nutrition Department, healthy finger foods for the breastfeeding baby
12 months and beyond
&frac34; Holistic Moms Network, baby led weaning

 Not only do breastfed babies and their mothers receive numerous benefits from their time breastfeeding, but employers and society as a whole profit from the relationship.  Breastfed babies have fewer ear infections, lower respiratory infections, and less diarrhea, as well as a reduced risk for asthma, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Mothers who breastfeed have a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, breast cancer, ovarian cancer and postpartum depression.  Employers benefit because parents of breastfed babies miss less work time caring for their sick child. They also save the medical costs from dependents on the company health care plan.

 Societal benefits of breastfeeding include the prevention of 1,000 infant deaths annually and the savings of approximately $13 billion per year nationally. Medical care costs are lower for fully breastfed infants than those infants who were never breastfed. Breastfed infants typically need fewer sick care visits, prescriptions, and hospitalizations. Breastfeeding also is environmentally friendly. It requires no formula production, packaging, or shipping. 

 The components of time and place are both regulated by state and federal law.  Tenn. Code Ann. § 50-1-305 (1999) requires employers to provide daily unpaid break time for a mother to express breast milk for her infant child. Employers also are required to make a reasonable effort to provide a private location, other than a toilet stall, in close proximity to the workplace for this activity. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 also addresses an employer’s responsibilities toward breastfeeding mothers. Employers are required to provide “reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing child for one year after the child’s birth each time such employee has need to express the milk.” Employers are also required to provide “a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public, which may be used by an employee to express breast milk.”

 

ACLU-TN Launches Initiative to Ensure Immigrants Understand Constitutional Rights


NASHVILLE – In response to the Supreme Court’s recent decision on Arizona’s “show me your papers” law, the ACLU of Tennessee today launched an initiative to ensure that Tennessee’s immigrants understand their right to fair treatment in the justice system.
 
The centerpiece of this effort is the online “Immigrant Rights Resource Center,” with bilingual information on how to prepare for interactions with law enforcement.  ACLU-TN is publicizing the center with the distribution of posters in Spanish and English to social service agencies, businesses and churches across the state.
 
“The Constitution’s promise of fair treatment in the justice system applies to all people in this country, citizens and non-citizens alike,” said Hedy Weinberg, ACLU-TN Executive Director.  “ACLU-TN’s online Immigrant Resource Center is designed to help people understand the justice system and the safeguards it offers.”
 
The constitutional guarantee of due process ensures that people are treated equally within the justice system. The U.S. is not supposed to be a country that detains people, sometimes for years, without access to lawyers or family. Unfortunately, this is what is happening to thousands of immigrants caught up in raids, transferred into detention centers, and pressured into signing removal orders without being able to consult with counsel or family.
 
The printable documents in the resource center provide information on how the justice system works, as well as an understanding of constitutional protections. They include information on obtaining visas in cases of domestic and workplace abuse or human trafficking, encounters with law enforcement, the detention system, safety planning and raids.

Nashville government today filed a civil lawsuit against a criminal street gang,


For the first time ever in the State of Tennessee, Nashville government today filed a civil lawsuit against a criminal street gang, Kurdish Pride (KPG), and 24 of its alleged local members asking that they collectively be declared a public nuisance and prohibited from meeting with each other anywhere inside a 1.43 square mile “safety zone” in South Nashville.

          That safety zone includes Paragon Mills Park, Providence Park, neighborhoods around the parks and certain parking lots in which KPG members have been known to congregate and/or commit criminal acts.  The safety zone is bounded on the east by I-24; on the south by Harding Place; on the west by Nolensville Pike; and on the north by railroad tracks.

          “For the past several years, our police department has done a very good job investigating members of various gangs and convicting them in the state and federal courts,” Mayor Karl Dean said.  “Many have been locked away for long periods of time.” 

          “At our urging, the Tennessee legislature in 2009 added criminal gang behavior to the state’s public nuisance law.  Chief Anderson and I agree that we should take advantage of this relatively new tool whenever possible to further enhance the safety of neighborhoods,” Dean said.

          Based on a lengthy investigation by the police department’s Gang Unit, the Metropolitan Legal Department this morning filed the lawsuit in Davidson County Criminal Court.  It alleges KPG members are known to engage in vandalism, assaults, the illegal possession and discharge of guns, burglaries, witness intimidation, street robberies, conspiracy to commit murder, threatening police officers, gambling, arson and fraud.  The investigation found that many of those acts take place on a regular basis in order to maintain power over the community, recruit new members, and threaten and intimidate citizens to keep silent about KPG activities.

          “This court action will assist the Gang Unit and South Precinct Officers as they work with families in the Paragon Mills area to take back the neighborhood and two city parks,” Chief Steve Anderson said.  “Our police department and this city will not sit idly by when gang activity threatens the peace of any community.”

          Metro alleges that the KPG is entrenched in the Harding Place/Nolensville Pike corridor in South Nashville.  Gang members known to meet in various locations, including the two parks, Paragon Mills Church of Christ parking lot, and the McDonald’s located at 5107 Nolensville Pike (areas that are included in the 1.43 square mile safety zone).  KPG members have repeatedly vandalized areas of Paragon Mills Park and even cut down a pole camera installed by the police department in response to citizen complaints about criminal activity.  

          Providence Park has also been used by the KPG to plan and conduct criminal gang activities.  Providence Park has also been vandalized with gang graffiti.

          Metro is asking Criminal Court Judge Steve Dozier, after a 9 a.m. hearing on June 29th, to declare that the KPG and the 24 individuals constitute a public nuisance; that the 24 persons be banned from entering Paragon Mills Park and Providence Park; and that the 24 not associate with each other with the exception of school events, organized religious events and father/son/daughter relationships.  The prohibitions would not apply to a gathering in a private place that is not open to the public.  The city is also asking Judge Dozier to enjoin the 24 individuals named in the lawsuit from engaging in violations of the law and criminal gang behavior.

          A violation of an order issued by Judge Dozier could result in an individual covered by an injunction being held in contempt of court and sanctioned with jail time and or a fine.

          While this is the first gang injunction sought by Nashville government, ongoing investigations could lead to similar type civil lawsuits in the future.

          KPG criminal activities have been the subject of investigations by Gang Unit detectives and other MNPD components for a number of years.

La mayoría de arrestos de inmigrantes son por crimenes menores


El siguiente articulo del abogado de inmigracion, Sean Lewis fue publicado en la version de Papel del periodico Mundo Hispano Bilingue a principios del 2012.

NASHVILLE –Una de las cosas en las que pienso en esta época del año es cómo mis clientes se han visto afectados por las leyes de inmigración. También reflexiono sobre cómo mi firma de abogados ha trabajado en la asistencia a un gran grupo de clientes en sus asuntos legales.

En retrospectiva, creo que el 2011 fue un año muy bueno para la mayoría de nuestros clientes: hemos obtenido la residencia en la corte de inmigración para la mayoría de las peticiones ingresadas y hemos unido a las familias a través de procesos consulares, solicitudes complicadas y luchas contra la deportación de nuestros clientes en la corte.

Algo que distingue el 2011 con respecto al 2010 es que la agencia de aplicación de la ley migratoria (ICE) está reconociendo la ‘Discreción para Acusar’. El término no es nuevo y se refiere a la priorización de los casos. Por ejemplo, en lugar de arrestar a quienes cruzan la calle indebidamente, la policía en todo el país decide mejor procesar a los criminales peligrosos en sus localidades.

De igual modo, ICE está implementando lentamente la política de “puertas abiertas” para considerar las solicitudes de suspender o cancelar el proceso de deportación de algunas personas en proceso de deportación.

Hemos tenido éxito en algunos casos de deportación que han sido cerrados indefinidamente. En una ocasión se nos concedió una petición para finalizar un caso por dos meses de modo que el cliente pueda acumular dos meses de presencia física en los EE.UU. y así ella pueda calificar para la “Cancelación de la Remoción por Diez Años”.

Ahora esa misma cliente está solicitando la tarjeta verde en la corte de inmigración y también obtendrá una autorización de trabajo y una licencia de conducir mientras su caso nosotros preparamos su caso frente a la corte de inmigración.

¿Significa esto que Obama está deteniendo todas las deportaciones como se anunció equivocadamente por varios medios noticiosos en español?

La respuesta es “absolutamente NO”! Lo que sucede es que ICE solo puede deportar unas 400,000 personas al año y ya alcanzó la cuota de este año.

Lo que está haciendo el gobierno es aplicar la ley “inteligentemente” perseguiendo a los criminales de delitos graves, a personas que representan un peligro para la seguridad del país.

Lamentablemente, en Tennessee, y especialmente en Nashville, la mayoría de las personas detenidas por delitos menores como el manejar sin licencia terminan en procedimientos de deportación.

Como concecuencia los dos jueces del tribunal migratorio de Memphis tienen un mayor volumen de casos por juez que cualquier otro tribunal de la nación. De modo que ahora nos toma de dos a tres años para obtener una fecha para la audiencia final cuando ello solía tomar menos de un año.

Creo firmemente que ICE está tomando la ‘Discreción para Acusar’ en serio y nos han tratado profesionalmente. Debemos reconocer que ICE tiene el trabajo de hacer cumplir la ley tal como está escrita.

Sin embargo, puedo decir según mi experiencia con los abogados y agentes de ICE, que ellos han tomado nuestra solicitud de ‘Discreción para Acusar’ en serio. Aunque mi gran deseo para el 2012 es un cambio integral de nuestro sistema de inmigración quebrado- que no va a suceder ya que se avecina otra elección.

Soy realista en la creencia de que seremos capaces de mantener unidas a más familias el próximo año haciendo uso de la ‘Discreción para Acusar’.

Nos llena de orgullo ver a generaciones de familias que reunimos o mantuvimos unidas para vivir el sueño americano. Es por eso que hago lo que hago.

Felices Fiestas de Fin de Año!
