IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE: Mercer County immigrants
gather outside St. Paul's Catholic Church in Princeton on Saturday,
July 24, to express concern about the recent increase of deportation
incidents in Central New Jersey. An estimated 250 immigrants and
their supporters marched down Nassau Street to show support for
humane immigrant reforms.
Work began Monday to remove FitzRandolph Gate, less
formally known as the "main gates" to the Princeton
University campus in front of Nassau Hall, The gates are being
taken away for repair and restoration in preparation for the entrance's
100th anniversary next year.
Approximately 250 Mercer County immigrants and their
supporters marched down the streets of Princeton on Saturday,
July 24, to urge humane immigrant reforms in Central New Jersey.
The march commenced in Palmer Square and was followed by an interfaith
prayer service at St. Paul's Catholic Church.
A recently-completed, $2 million New Jersey Department
of Transportation (DOT) project to repair Harry's Brook Bridge
on Princeton-Kingston Road in the Township has calmed the nerves
of drivers and Lake Carnegie-area residents, but has raised the
eyebrows of several Township officials who are questioning the
bridge's aesthetic integrity.
