There are 89 U.S. Attorneys in the United States and Puerto Rico. Of the 84 appointed by the President, four are Latinos; two are women. One of them is Carmen Milagros Ortiz. She is the first woman and first Latina to head the Massachusetts U.S. Attorney’s Office. The late Senator Ted Kennedy and former Senator John Kerry (now Secretary of State) recommended Ortiz. President Barack Obama nominated her. The United States Senate then confirmed her by unanimous consent.
