Benjamin Parisi is a former organizer originally from Indiana now living in Washington D.C. He began to get informed about immigration policy when he began to learn about the lives of refugees outside of the United States, and has known friends affected by immigration enforcement. “President Obama has the political capital and the power to create at least a temporary solution, until Representatives actually act on this issue and pass real immigration reform. I am here because it is important to stake our political ground, on this issue that impacts millions of families in this country. We cannot claim to live in a democratic society if we don’t engage in actions like these. The President must listen to us and the thousands of families being broken apart every day and take action.”
