Finally, on April 27th, after months of waiting, President Trump’s second nominee for the position of US Secretary of Labor and only Latino cabinet member, Alexander Acosta, was confirmed. Acosta, dean of Florida International University College of Law and former US attorney, received the nomination in mid-February after the first nominee, Andrew Puzder, withdrew his name due to a potential conflict of interest. Acosta has patiently waited over the last few months as other nominees including, Justice Neil Gorsuch and Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, took priority. Acosta is no stranger to the confirmation process, as he was nominated and confirmed for three positions during the George W. Bush administration. The road to a successful confirmation can often be long and winding, however Acosta’s patience clearly paid off, and now he can get to work.
