Ex-San Diego schools chief and former U.S. Attorney Alan Bersin, who never seemed to be much of a fan of the press unless it was well controlled, is off to a familiar start in his new role as the Obama administration’s border czar. According to media reports, Bersin made a quick trip to Laredo under a veil of secrecy. Of course, with Mexican drug lords expected to draw a bead on the new border enforcer, such secrecy may come with the territory.-mp

Alan Bersin is the most connected incompetent hack I have ever seen.

How this guy continues to get "appointed" to top level jobs blows me away.

Yeah, he was border czar before, when nothing really effective was in place. Then he moved on to being superintendent of the SD schools, and fell on his face. (Well, they hired him to "lead" the district, and he equated that with bring a despot. The U-T loved him--still does--but he just wasted resources on hare-brained educational fads.) At that point he did the carpet bagger thing and headed for a slot in Sacramento as an educator!

If you were expecting anything in the way of real border control or enforcement, weep. He and Janet N are both on the "immigration reform" agenda, which means more of what we've had for the past two or three decades. He now says he wants to control border violence. How about having a real "border" at the border? Let the Border Patrol do what is supposed to do.

If you expect Bersin to do anything, get ready to be disappointed.

I can't wait until "refriedgringo" weighs in. But I do second post #1 from "SurfPuppy619".

However it is that Alan Bersin gets appointed to "top level" jobs, it's cemented by large gifts of cash to political campaigns, as Matt Potter recently reported. Over two days last summer, after his first-choice candidate Hillary had dropped out, Bersin gave more than $30,000 to the Dems and Obama. It is called Pay-to-Play.
