    President Trump's second pick for labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, faced the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee today for his confirmation hearing. The hearing lasted three hours. During that time, he defended his recorded as a United States attorney and promised to push back against Trump if he disagrees with the president:
    “If confirmed, I will work to enforce the laws under the department’s jurisdiction fully and fairly,” Mr. Acosta said in his opening pitch to senators. “As a former prosecutor, I will always be on the side of the law and not any particular constituency.”

    President Donald Trump has picked former National Labor Relations Board member Alexander Acosta for his Secretary of Labor. Trump had to choose another nominee after fast food executive Andrew Puzder withdrew on Wednesday following controversies that surrounded him, which included hiring an illegal immigrant for a housekeeper and accusations of spousal abuse.
