Other Immigrant Employee Controversies

Linda Chavez

George W. Bush appointee to Secretary of Labor in 2001. Her withdrawal followed media scrutiny of her work relationship with Guatemalan immigrant Marta Mercado, to whom Chavez gave money and a room in her house. Although Chavez denied Mercado was paid for providing household help, it is against the law in the United States to house an illegal immigrant. Post filled by current Secretary Elaine Chao who emigrated from Taiwan when she was eight years old.

Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood

Bill Clinton's first two nominees for Attorney General. Both were revealed to have employed illegal aliens as babysitters. Both women withdrew their names from consideration for the appointment in the scandal that became known as "Nannygate." Post was filled by Janet Reno, who was recently a Democratic candidate for the Florida governorship.
