Washington, D.C.  Former Gov. Ted Strickland, President of the Center for American Progress Action Fund and Counselor to the Center for American Progress, joined former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard and Melissa Crow of the American Immigration Council for a reporter conference call on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, at 12:00 p.m. ET to address recent lawsuits brought against executive immigration action. The speakers  addressed the politically motivated lawsuits, including one brought by anti-immigrant Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio; the president’s clear legal authority to set enforcement priorities; and laid out the real-world ramifications that could result from the suits, such as separating hardworking families rather than allowing law enforcement to target felons and dangerous criminals.
