On February 16, 2017, President Donald Trump nominated R. Alexander Acosta for the position of Secretary of Labor [link]. The announcement came after his original nominee, Andrew Puzder, withdrew his name from consideration for Secretary of Labor. Acosta is an attorney who previously served on the National Labor Relations Board under President George W. Bush. He subsequently served as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. The Secretary of Labor is a significant position in the employment immigration context. We look forward to posting a full profile of Acosta in the near future.
