The Center for American Progress announced today that Marshall Fitz
has been named Vice President for Immigration Policy. Fitz will direct CAP’s immigration team, a position previously held by Angela Kelley
, who is on leave to help coordinate external outreach and public engagement around President Barack Obama’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions.
“I am thrilled to announce that Marshall will be taking the helm of the immigration team at CAP,” said CAP President Neera Tanden
. “Marshall’s more than 15 years of experience working on immigration law and policy translates to incredible knowledge and skills that will ensure CAP’s continued leadership on the issue. We will miss Angie but know that her skills will be invaluable to the White House.”
Fitz is a graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law and served on the Virginia Law Review. After graduation, he clerked for Judge Bruce M. Selya on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit. In the following years he practiced immigration law in Washington, D.C., at Hogan & Hartson, LLP. Before holding his current position as Director of Immigration policy for CAP, he served as the director of advocacy for the American Immigration Lawyers Association, where he led the education and advocacy efforts on all immigration policy issues for the 11,000-member professional bar association.
