Pope Francis has today officiated the wedding of 20 couples at the Vatican, including several couples who had lived together before marriage, or had children out of wedlock.

According to BBC News, one of the couples included in the marriage solemnization ceremony was a man whose previous marriage was annulled getting married to a single mother who had a daughter from a previous relationship.

Tolu Olubunmi, Undocumented Nigerian Immigrant in the US Shares Her Story

Posted in: , ,

Nigerian immigrant Tolu Olubunmi, 31, was among several other guests invited last year by President Barack Obama to the White House as he highlighted immigration reform.

Tolu was brought to the United States by her parents when she was 14, and has never been able to document her stay here in America since then.

Tolu Olubunmi came with the hopes of immigrating legally, but 17 years later, she is an undocumented immigrant living in the U.S. She is unable to use her chemical engineering degree in the workplace or even leave the country for fear of being banned from re-entry.

“I am not used to the limbo. I am not used to stress. I am not used to sharing my story. I am not a public person at all, but the courageous attitudes of the dreamers I’ve gotten to work with over the years and the fact that they were so willing to lay everything on the line - it really spurred me on. Plus, I saw the impertinence of adding my voice as an African.”
