Immigrant-fueled residential home boom caused controversy in 2003

"Heroes of the daily stories that happened this year in Southeast Davidson County speak many languages, come from a multitude of countries and have many different colors of skin."

"There are those like Luz Moralez, a single mom of a 5-year-old girl, who celebrated Christmas in her first home in Providence Park subdivision. She, along with hundreds of others, many of whom are immigrants, got a shot at pursuing their American dreams."

"Take the Antioch cluster of schools, for example. Parents and Metro school officials met to talk about short- and long-term solutions to the serious problem of public schools unable to accommodate the volume of students."

"All but one school in that cluster — Lakeview Elementary — are overcrowded, by an average of 100 students each. All but the one are surrounded by portable classrooms, forcing students and teachers to commute to restrooms and libraries."

Article also mentions five October resignations from board of "Hispanic Chamber of Commerce" without specifying Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce or Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
