Bad News: David V. Aguilar, Mexican
I informed readers about the bad news when the political hack Alan Bersin was appointed Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection. The news is even worse now that he has appointed David V. Aguilar as Deputy Commissioner. Aguilar was formerly Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol and well known for his close relations with Mexican officials, always acting to further the interests of Mexico and Mexicans over that of Border Patrol Agents and the United States. Basically, Aguilar has acted as a diplomatic representative from Mexico rather than an officer of the United States charged with arresting mainly Mexicans for illegally entering the U.S. Strangely enough there is no press release on this decision on the DHS website or on the CBP website. However CBP is quite proud that they seized some pork from a German visitor. That is probably related to Aguilar's lack of concern for drugs and illegal aliens, and part of the Obama war on white people.
