Hilda Solis named Obama's Labor Secretary

Sources say that Barack Obama has named U.S. Representative Hilda Solis to be his Secretary of the Department of Labor:

Solis, who is the daughter of Mexican and Nicaraguan immigrants, has been the only member of Congress of Central American descent. She just won a fifth term representing heavily Hispanic portions of eastern Los Angeles County and east LA... Andy Stern, president of the 1.9-million member Service Employees International Union, the 51-year-old praised Solis for her deep roots in the union movement. He recalled marching with her in Los Angeles - well before she was elected to Congress - to seek higher wages and benefits for janitors...

Even those not familiar with her past won't need much to read between the lines: she's a strong supporter of illegal immigration, even going as far as promoting comprehensive immigration reform standing side-by-side with Mexican elected officials at a Washington DC press conference she helped organize. Expect her - like other Obama picks - to support illegal/massive immigration through various means.

This might also have been another quota pick; previously, Obama had named or was set to name four Hispanics to top positions in his administration. However, with the news that Xavier Becerra was dropping out, Solis might have been chosen.

UPDATE: FAIR says this:

President-elect Obama's selection of a labor secretary who has steadfastly opposed protecting American workers from the impact of millions of illegal aliens in our labor force is yet another blow to hard-working families who desperately need those jobs. Both in Congress and as a member of the California Legislature, Hilda Solis has vigorously opposed efforts to institute and enforce laws against employing illegal aliens.

They list some of her legislative "highlights".
