Putz Puzder's Nomination Pulled

From news reports, it appears one of Rump's sociopathic plutocrats is going down:
The White House is expected to withdraw Andy Puzder’s nomination as labor secretary on Wednesday, according to multiple reports. He is the first of President Donald Trump’s nominees to not make it through the confirmation process. 
The move came as support evaporated among Republicans for the former fast-food executive. At least seven Republican senators refused to publicly back the former chief executive of CKE Restaurants, which owns the burger chains Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, as criticism mounted over his hefty stack of labor violations and long-standing support for increased immigration.
Puzder was the perfect Rump Republican for the Labor Department. In other words, he was a horror. Good riddance!

I was wondering where the line was, what could a nominee do to be so truly awful even Republicans couldn't support him. Now I know. Its support for increased immigration!

Yesss! How deliciously ironic.
