Trump Deportation Force & Latino pick for Labor: Darcy cartoon

President Donald Trump's nominee for labour secretary Andrew Puzder, has withdrawn from consideration on the eve of his confirmation hearing. How likely is it that Acosta will be confirmed as Labor secretary?

"Unlike Andy Puzder, Alexander Acosta's nomination deserves serious consideration", said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. The NAACP's Miami-Dade branch expressed concern, telling the Miami Herald at the time of Acosta's hire that his "lack of diversity in hiring and promotion while serving as USA attorney gives cause for concern for his consideration as dean of FIU's College of Law". Acosta, who has served in several Senate-confirmed positions, is likely to be approved easily. Then Acosta went on to work at the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, specializing in employment and labor issues, his FIU bio says.

CNN Money reported that in 2011, during a Senate judiciary committee hearing about protecting Muslim American rights, Acosta said that America is a "nation [built] on principles of freedom, and high on the list of freedoms is freedom of religious expression". Trump has announced that he's chosen R. Alexander Acosta, a law school dean and clerked for a current Supreme Court justice, to lead the department. Trumka emphasized that the union will be reviewing Acosta's record carefully and that the nominee "will have to answer tough questions and explain how he will enforce and uphold labor laws to benefit working people".
