Thomas Perez, the Obama administration’s pick to become Secretary of Labor, can expect tough questions from Republican senators when he sits down for confirmation hearings on April 18.

Critics say Perez, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division since late 2009, has been soft on illegal immigration. Less controversial: His advocacy for strong ADA enforcement.

Despite GOP objections, congressional handicappers expect Perez to be confirmed to replace former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.
