On July 19, 2019, Alexander Acosta resigned as the Secretary of Labor, leaving Deputy Secretary Patrick Pizzella as the Acting Secretary of Labor. One day earlier, President Donald Trump announced that he would nominate Eugene Scalia to be the next Secretary of Labor. The Department of Labor (DOL) plays a significant role in the administration of certain immigrant and nonimmigrant work visa categories, including being responsible for labor certification [see category].

Eugene Scalia is the son of former Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. He has spent most of his career in private practice, but served for one year as the Solicitor of the Department of Labor during the George W. Bush Administration.

We will update the website with more information if Scalia is confirmed to serve as the next Secretary of Labor.
