LobsterFest contributions will help Old Town House and Fire Dept.

To the Daily Sun:

On behalf of the Center Harbor Heritage Commission, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Heritage Fund at the Aug. 6 LobsterFest that was held at our Fire House. These generous contributions will help restore our Old Town House and return it to public use for civic and community meetings and cultural events.

And, a special "thank you" to the Center Harbor Community Development Association for sponsoring the LobsterFest to support our dedicated Fire Department.

Listed on the New Hampshire Register of Historic Places, the Old Center Harbor Town House was built in 1843 and used for Town Meetings and voting until 1964. It also served as a one-room schoolhouse for several years. It is still located on the original site at the corner of Route 3 and Waukewan Road. Sadly, despite its proud history of serving the townspeople, the Old Town House is only used for storage now and desperately needs repairs.

Anyone who would like to help save our Old Town House may mail a tax-deductible donation to: The Center Harbor Heritage Fund, PO Box 140, Center Harbor, NH 03226. The check should be made payable to: The Center Harbor Heritage Fund.

Don Ewing (8-13) 415Americans will be victimized until we stop illegal immigration

To the Daily Sun,

Donald Trump brought more media attention to the problem of illegal immigration. Now we see that many Americans are raped, murdered, or otherwise harmed by illegal aliens daily. Recently an illegal alien who has been arrested four times but not deported by the Obama administration allegedly raped and bludgeoned a 64-year-old Marilyn Pharis to death with a hammer.

The Democratic spokesmen representing President Obama, who refuses to enforce our immigration laws, don't even seem to care about the victims of illegal aliens. They try to divert attention from President Obama who is the only one with the authority and funding to stop this crime wave against the American people.

Democrat spokesmen falsely claim that Comprehensive Immigration Reform, which neither Republican nor Democrat controlled Congresses passed, would have protected Americans.
But Comprehensive Immigration Reform wouldn't have stopped the harm to Americans. No law changes hardened violent criminals into saints.

And by rewarding illegal aliens with legal status, Comprehensive Immigration Reform would have encouraged even more illegal immigration causing even more harm to American citizens. Only the recording of crime statistics would change as the numbers of "Crimes by illegal aliens" would be counted as "Crimes by legal immigrants."

Congress didn't pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform because the vast majority of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents rose up in opposition. We know that not a single word needs to be added to our laws or another dollar allocated to stop most illegal immigration and protect the American people. Only the will to enforce our laws is lacking.

The American people have been lied to repeatedly about enforcing our immigration law, e.g., the border is "secure," the false claims of a record number of "deportations." We are tired of it. We're tired of being victimized by illegal aliens who are allowed to stay here because illegal immigration benefits politicians and their special interest supporters.

Americans will continue to be victimized by illegal aliens if we elect another president and another Congress who promote Comprehensive Immigration Reform rather than simply and finally stopping illegal immigration.

Many presidential candidates are disclosing good-sounding plans to handle illegal immigration. However, we've heard campaign promises before, and most candidates, like Clinton and Bush, have clear track records of supporting illegal immigration and fake "reforms."

Some candidates may have good intentions, but only Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, and Rick Santorum have the track records that show a commitment to stopping illegal immigration and protecting the American people.
