No, not fresh off the boat, but it might as well be. Alan Bersin, Friend of Bill, has been nominated for the position of Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection. http://www.whorunsgov.com/Profiles/Alan_D._Bersin
While he is an accomplished Washington insider, he, despite claims otherwise, has no real accomplishments except as a campaign fund raiser.
More importantly, as Clinton border czar and United States Attorney for the Southern District of California (San Diego), he spearheaded the no-prosecution rule for illegal aliens and previous deportees not only in San Diego, but elsewhere.
Under his watch in the Southern District of California, that office adopted a policy that basically stopped prosecution of illegal aliens for re-entry after deporation, even for aliens with criminal records caught re-entering the U.S. Aliens with 20 plus attempts to enter illegally were declined by his office for prosectution, including those with other felony convictions. This policy was soon adopted throughout the US Attorney's Offices located in California and most along the southern border. Basically, criminal aliens, previous deportees, and illegal aliens in general were not prosecuted, just deported again, only to return again and again until they succeeded in crossing the border without being caught.
The money quote: "Bersin’s focus was on smugglers of both people and contraband rather than 'economic migrants.'” And to Bersin, every illegal alien was an economic migrant, including most drug smugglers as his office had a requirement that for a drug smuggler to be prosecuted the amount of drugs seized must be a large amount. Small time smugglers skated, as well as alien smugglers. It got so bad under Bersin that teenaged Americans were frequently recruited to drive smuggling loads as there was no prosecution of small time alien smugglers.
Add to this, he has no experience in administering a small law enforcement agency, much less the largest law enforcement agency in the country. It is clear that Bersin's job will to be ending enforcement not increasing it. While in the linked article he is given credit for Operation Gatekeeper, he had nothing to do with it. Gatekeeper was an initative straight from the U.S. Border Patrol management. It came as a surprising success to the then Immigration and Naturalization Service Commissioner Doris Meissner, who was forced by its success to expand it from California to the rest of the Mexican border.
One success of Operation Gatekeeper was the triple border fence on a 12 mile strip of the border from the Pacific Ocean inland. The triple fence stopped cold aliens and drugs on those 12 miles. A lesson to the present, where Barak Hussein Obama, Janet Reno Napalitano and Bersin all oppose border fences.
What is also not mentioned in Bersin's profile is that he spearheaded Islamist indoctrination in the San Diego Unified School District as its Superintendent. http://www.10news.com/news/13767699/detail.html Only after he left, was the policy of prayer time for Muslims and segregated classes ended.
Soon the border will be wide open to economic migrants and more Palestinian killers. FOB. You heard it here first.
