President Donald Trump is expected to announce Alexander Acosta, the Florida International University College of Law dean, as his new pick to head the Department of Labor, according to reports. He is the first of President Donald Trump's nominees to not make it through the confirmation process.
Mr. Acosta, now dean of Florida International University College of Law, previously served as assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division under President George W. Bush.
He now is dean of Florida International University College of Law and chairman of U.S. Century Bank.
Joseph Guzman, an assistant professor at Michigan State University, and Catherine Templeton, former head of the SC labor department, were also potential candidates, Bloomberg reported, citing a White House official.

Puzder is chief executive officer of CKE Restaurants Inc, which primarily franchises fast-food chains including Hardee's and Carl's Jr.
Puzder's confirmation hearing before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions was delayed four times because he had failed to fill out necessary ethics and financial forms.
Decades ago, Puzder's ex-wife, Lisa Fierstein, brought abuse charges against him, which she later dropped. If confirmed, Acosta will be the only Hispanic person in Trump's cabinet.
At least seven Republican senators, including Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, declined to publicly back Puzder in advance of the confirmation hearing. Unlike Andy Puzder, Alexander Acosta's nomination deserves serious consideration.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pivoted to the most muscular defense of Puzder's nomination, vowing to stick with him despite Puzder's acknowledgement of having employed a housekeeper not authorized to work in the US. In it, Fierstein tells Winfrey that she had been threatened by Puzder for going public with her allegations during their divorce.
