Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro released this statement following the announcement of Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis's resignation from her post:
"Secretary Solis has been a trailblazer from the time she served in the California State Assembly and through her time in the United States Cabinet. I am grateful for the many doors she has opened to young Latinos everywhere. I look forward to championing policy issues, like immigration reform, she worked on in her time in the U.S. House of Representatives. Her work to help our economy continue to grow will have a positive and lasting impact in United States for years to come."
