CÁRDENAS PRAISES CONFIRMATION OF SECRETARY PEREZ
 

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Rep. Tony Cárdenas today released a statement following the successful confirmation of new Labor Secretary Tom Perez by the United States Senate.

“Tom Perez is a good man and an even better public servant,” said Cárdenas. “He will be a wonderful advocate for the economic growth of the United States through effective support of the rights of the working men and women of this great nation. As the son of immigrants who put himself through an Ivy League college, Tom understands how hard it is to pursue the American Dream. As the former head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, he fully understands the motivation and insidiousness of those who try to steal that Dream from working Americans. Tom will fight for us, he will fight for our constituents and he will fight for our nation. I look forward to working with him in his new role.”
