Obama will reach his goal of resettling 10,000 Syrian refugees

To The Daily Sun,

Rest assured that nobody but those in the neo-fascist bigot bubble thinks any of Steve Earle's anti-Muslim rants are anything more than logical fallacies, false equivalencies and outright ignorance. Mein Trumpf has recently gotten some backlash from the U.S. Congress regarding all the fascist hate speech.

According to Reason.com, "The Freedom of Religion Act of 2016 amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to include a new SEC. 220. "Prohibition on Denying Admission Because of Religion" reads, ''Notwithstanding any other provision of the immigration laws, an alien may not be denied admission to the United States because of the alien's religion or lack of religious beliefs.'' The bill has about 50 co-sponsors.

I have always believed that the right wing's worst enemy is their mouths. Thanks Steve, old pal! About 2,000 refugees have been settled so far and Obama's goal is 10,000. This goal will be reached, although national security experts from several administrations suggest raising the goal to 100,000 because our vetting process is much better than any other country's. Keep screaming, Steve!

Thanks for helping my son raise money for awesome place like CHaD

To The Daily Sun,

I'm shouting out a big "thank you" to everyone who attended the CHaD spaghetti dinner fundraiser at LHS for the East/West N.H. High School All-Star football game and/or who donated to Keith Schultz's (my son) fundraising page. The spaghetti dinner raised $643 ($161 for each of the four Laconia boys who made the team). With the help of family, friends, co-workers/staff of LHS, and community members (H&P Apartments, Jack Irwin and Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists), Keith has raised $1,746 of his $3,000 goal. Anyone wishing to contribute to this great cause can purchase a $10 ticket to the game or make a donation online at chadallstarfootball.org (When purchasing tickets online, when you get to the checkout process, there will be a place to add Keith's name.)

The game is on Sat. June 25th at St. Anselm College in Manchester (5:30 p.m.), so save the date on your calendar. Thank you again for helping my son raise this money for an awesome place, like CHaD, that does so much for families in need.

Tracy Schultz
