WASHINGTON – Representative Josh Harder (CA-10) demanded the resignation of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta in the following statement.

“Alex Acosta has been letting sex traffickers off the hook for years – he should resign immediately. Jeffrey Epstein’s is not an isolated case – Alex Acosta’s Department of Labor has also taken steps to undermine federal sex trafficking investigations.

“It’s 2019 – it’s long past time that we hold perpetrators of sexual misconduct – and their defenders – accountable.”
