Annie Benson has devoted her professional life to working for social justice. From 2000-2014 her work at the Washington Defender Association (WDA) focused on defending the rights of noncitizen defendants, especially those faced with deportations while in prison. Since then, she has been the Senior Directing Attorney at the WDA, a collaborating attorney with the Immigrant Legal Resource Center ... and a supporter and friend of JCIRA.
Annie's current work deals with laws and actions to limit ICE and Border Patrol enforcement in Washington state. A strong bill dealing with this issue was passed and signed by Gov. Inslee in May, 2019 - but what's actually happening on the ground? How can individuals and non-profit organizations protect immigrants and help this bill succeed?
