Dalton, GA: Dalton mayor meets with 'Hispanic community'...Fear. Anxiety. Concern. -- Those were just a few of the emotions many speakers expressed Tuesday night at meeting hosted by the Coalition of Latino Leaders (CLILA) at its headquarters on Morris Street. -- Around 100 people, mostly members of Dalton's Hispanic community, met with Mayor David Pennington and officials from the Dalton P.D..The meeting was sparked by a concern about roadblock check points conducted by the police department, but the discussion ranged over a number of topics related to the state’s new immigration law and how it is already having an impact on the local Hispanic community.
