Trump Nominates Andrew Puzder as Secretary of Labor

Trump will nominate Andrew Puzder as Secretary of Labor. He's currently CEO of CKE Restaurants, which owns Hardee's and other fast food restaurant chains. In a June 2015 Wall Street Journal op-ed he gave his views on employment-based immigration priorities:

"The best way to protect American workers is to generate economic growth. This is not synonymous with aggressively restricting immigration. Most studies conclude that immigration contributes to economic growth as well as innovation, and research and development. The American Enterprise Institute found in 2011 that “temporary foreign workers—both skilled and less skilled—boost U.S. employment” and that immigrants with advanced degrees working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields “boost employment for U.S. citizens.” Every Republican who aspires to the presidency should acknowledge that immigrants of all skill sets can benefit the economy."

"Legal immigration policies should support economic growth. If current quotas are bringing in enough talent, let’s keep them. If more immigration or less red tape will boost the economy, let’s try that. Guest-worker visas should ebb and flow with the economy. Legal immigration should focus more on what workers can contribute to the economy, as is the case in most other nations, and less on distant familial relationships."

A reasonable mainstream position he hopefully maintains.
