CONWAY — About 20 people gathered Tuesday at Conway Village's Four Corners to support the Syrian refugees streaming out of their country due to the ongoing civil war there.
Vigil participants want U.S. lawmakers to oppose a bill that would make immigrating to the U.S. more difficult.
The vigil was organized by the American Friends Service Committee and World Fellowship Center in Albany. In addition to the event in Conway, the AFSC also held vigils in Manchester, Nashua and Dover. They were motivated by a U.S. House bill that would make it harder for the refugees to come to America.
The bill passed easily last Thursday by a 289-137 vote (with 47 Democrats joining 242 Republicans in favor of the bill) that would suspend the program allowing Syrian and Iraqi refugees into the U.S. until key national security agencies certify they don't pose a security risk.

That was a question that members of the SAU 9 Board wrestled with last week, and after more than two hours of discussion still could not decide on salaries for School Superintendent Kevin Richard and Assistant Superintendent Kadie Wilson.
