Why do they expect everyone to uphold everything that they do ?This city gives them everything they need and the legal citizens do without.

"I'm really crying out for moral support. This thing is supposed to give a sense of why it's important to help and not to ignore the community," said Carolina Palero, the newly-hired programs director for Centro Latino. "Hispanics are here, regardless if you want them or don't want them."

(for now,my friend, for now)

Last year an estimated 300,000 people participated in 1,014 activities and received 49,349 health screenings throughout the United States and Canada at the Bi-National health fairs, according to reports from organizers. An additional 386,000 people were reached and 235,000 health screenings provided through activities carried out in 23 federal entities and 294 municipalities in Mexico. Palero expects about 300 to attend the local event".

What is a Bi-National health fair?. Again,SPP/NAU.

It is nice so many persons received health care or exams,Now tell me Shelbyville is not a Sanctuary City and why you think so.There is no complaint from me as to nationality!My complaint is do the immigrants want to be citizens of this country ??Dothey wish to learn our ways and English is the language of the country??Or do they want this country to learn their religion and practice it and their language and speak itand turn over our country to them?? None of our goverment leaders seem to have the gut to stand up.

Second thoughts--I said Gut but perhaps backbone would be correct .Until our goverment is changed to back to the Constitution and to doing what is called for in obeying the laws and and keeping our country safe this will only get worse.Acording to the paper 85% of the people do not agree with what congress keeps putting out .What can we do but hope the next election time will being about the largest turnout of people voting and the deadwood in Washington going home>

The city of Shelbyville will not endorse Bi-National Health Fair, but I hear that the county and fiscal court are going to.

To Indyeast; It seems that my hearing was just fine. The County was at the Bi-National Health Fair in FULL FORCE.
ie. Health Dept., Sheriff Dept., The Judge Executive, EMS. That seems like alot of the taxpayers money to me. At least the city had the guts to stand up for what is best for the taxpayers.

How would a black health fair go over or a white health fair? Why do Hispanics..which are classified as caucasian aren't they? Why do Hispanics try to create seperate attentions they would not tolerate from others?
