"Future generations will look back on the actions taken today to end discrimination in all of its forms as a watershed moment," Sutton said in a news release.'

"Every American deserves a chance at the American Dream, with no exception. The President's actions today represent progress in fulfilling our nation's commitment to equality for all Americans."
