Who Is Alex Acosta's Wife? New Details On Jan Acosta

Since Donald Trump was elected, Alex Acosta has served as the U.S. Secretary of Labor, appointed in February of last year. He’s the first and only Hispanic individual to serve in Trump’s cabinet, but was previously appointed to the National Labor Relations Board under President George W. Bush.

Prior to this, he was Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights and was the federal prosecutor for the Southern District of Florida. He’s also the former dean of Florida International University College of Law.

In addition to his achievements, he’s also been named one of the nation’s 50 most influential Hispanics by Hispanic Business magazine, and was also added to the list of 100 most influential individuals in business ethics in 2008, according to his White House biography.

But whether or not you know his experience in politics, you may have heard his name in the news a lot lately. Because most recently and notoriously, he was accused of being too lenient and letting billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who is also a friend of Trump’s, off the hook for allegedly sexually assaulting minors.

Acosta approved Epstein’s plea of 13 months in jail, despite an indictment that could have landed him in prison for life, while serving as a U.S. Attorney, leading to calls for investigation and Acosta’s resignation. It’s highly conspicuous, seeing as how the Labor Secretary oversees international child labor laws and human trafficking!
