Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan D. Bersin said Thursday he didn't know he's required by law to file paperwork verifying that his household employees were authorized to work in the United States.
Bersin told senators that he and his wife tracked the immigration status of a nanny, house cleaners and babysitters "on a piece of paper that was on file in our home."

Ah...nothing like compliant, ignorant, non english speaking household employees for these bureaucrats, especially those who have something to hide. If they complain, they get deported.
Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan D. Bersin said Thursday he didn’t know he’s required by law to file paperwork verifying that his household employees were authorized to work in the United States.
This is scary!!!!!
It’s not as if he didn’t file his taxes...
It is obvious that the 0haha people believe that every elite left winger should have several illegal serfs working for them. Of course this was rampant among many of the Clintoon picks for cabinet positions and other key positions.
Oh, absolutely, darlin. That's exactly what I do, myself.
Article forwarded by our NAFBPO friends with this note:
” Gee, really? So the man responsible to see those specific laws enforced doesn’t even know them, although he was a U.S. Attorney. And when you connect him to Holder who didn’t read Arizona’s law, what a dynamic duo! Oops, sorry, got carried away. It just is mind-boggling the amount of BS Washington keeps shoveling out to us, expecting us to quietly acquiesce and let it continue. “
Ya think maybe the liberals (the ones who are able to think independently, anyway, if such an animal exists, lol) are beginning to realize that uhbama and his swarmy cabal are, well, kinda stupid, unprepared and totally CLUELESS?
Bersin needs a refresher course in the law. Maybe Zoe Baird can give him a few pointers.
” Bersin told senators that he and his wife tracked the immigration status of a nanny, house cleaners and babysitters “on a piece of paper that was on file in our home.”

Mind boggling, isn’t it??
They expect us to believe this. Surely nobody's that stupid, though.
“According to a memo by the Senate Finance Committee, Bersin has employed 10 household employees since 1993 and failed to complete I-9 forms for all of them. The I-9 form is issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which shares immigration enforcement responsibilities with CBP and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The Finance Committee considered Bersin’s nomination Thursday, but Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) told Bersin that his failure to file the paperwork was “unacceptable.
Bersin previously served as Obama’s U.S.-Mexico border czar, advising Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on border security matters. The former California education secretary, San Diego schools superintendent and private-practice lawyer also served as a U.S. attorney during the Clinton administration. He maintains the full support of the White House. “
Let me guess, he misplaced the paper.
Didn’t the family of Bersin’s wife make their millions from their LA sweetshops and the illegals they employed?

I keep thinking there will be at least ONE morning we won’t be assaulted in yet another new wave by this the Clown Prince of Kenya and his latest corrupt clown posse in DC...
“Circumventing the Senate, President Obama appointed Goldstein to the position during Easter 2010 recess; he can serve through 2011.”
Bersin has given more than $50,000 to political campaigns since 1999, almost all of it to Democrats. He donated nearly $40,000 during the 2008 election cycle: the maximum possible to both Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama; $28,500 to the DNC and less than $1,000 to the Democratic Party in Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia, Missouri, Indiana, Colorado and Wisconsin.Center for Responsive Politics (26)Center for Responsive Politics
he needs the refresher from the inside
Nothing to see here folks. Everyone knows rules are for the little people...
Actually, I think this is common and inconsequential if he checked their papers and social security nos and paid their FICA and unemployment insurance. That’s a great deal more than most homeowners do with regard to household workers. I doubt anyone even reads these forms for household employees anyway.
Aim your kicks higher than the ankles ..pls.

Illegal Aliens Induce a Boycott of Arizona
Sonora Businessmen and organizations in Sonora and Tamaulipas invoked a boycott of Arizona in support of their countrymen residing in Arizona and called for A Day Without Mexicans. The director of the Camara Nacional de Comercio, (Mexican National Chamber of Commerce), Gustavo Claussen, said that the boycott will be coordinated at the national level. He said that A Day Without Mexicans will be the official name of the boycott and will be a means of rejecting the application of Arizonas SB-1070 which criminalizes the undocumented. Claussen clarified that this will be the means to modify or repeal the law. The states of Sonora and Arizona share around 560 kilometers of border and have supported one another with cultural and commercial interaction for more than 50 years. We dont want to exaggerate, but we will not set one foot into Arizona and we want to demonstrate our firm position that we disagree with this law, stated Claussen.
The President of the Chamber in Reynosa, Ramiro Cienfuegos, stated that all of the members of the Chamber are in agreement and will stand in solidarity with the boycott because their countrymen are victims of discrimination and persecution in the state of Arizona, and should not be punished for only wanting to work. We urge our citizens this Thursday not to buy anything in the stores in the United States and to not buy anything made by the Gringos exported into this country, said Cienfuegos.
It is significant that 30% of the sales in Arizona are to Mexicans.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer banned in Queretaro
Queretaro, Queretaro A majority in the city government of Queretaro made the decision to declare Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and all Arizona State legislators personas non-gratas in the city of Queretaro and called Felipe Calderón to deny access to the nation of Mexico. The government of Queretaro rejects Arizonas SB-1070 as racism and discrimination. Along with approving the declaration, the city government called upon President Felipe Calderón to declare all government officials of the State of Arizona personas non-gratas and ban their entry into the Republic of Mexico.
[One readers comment: What barbarity now they have to think about repealing the law so they can visit Queretaro.]

The United States will give up its drugs?
Imagine a day in which all the drug users in the United States, in support of Mexico, will give up their addictions. The economic hit to the cartels would be devastating. Within a month, the strike against illegal substances would bring criminal enterprises to a halt, incapacitate the illicit traffic in arms, bankrupt dealers, end the employment of henchmen and end the bribery of public officials. All that is impossible, but this utopia that I have shown you, serves to point out that the nail in the coffin of the demand for drugs is what it will take to eradicate narcotics trafficking.
Meanwhile drugs continue to be illegal, and if the demand doesnt drop, the continuing crime results in miles of dead bodies. Not only Mexico, but Colombia and the United States itself, for the past 30 years, have accomplished nothing in The War on Drugs.
Since the time President Nixon declared this fateful war, we have spent millions for police programs, arms, armored vehicles, customs regulations and other programs all aimed toward reducing the demand for drugs. The Results? Failure to reduce drug consumption and the exponential increase in violence.
Mathea Falco, assistant to ex-President Clinton, begged The White House to change its paradigm. Lamentably, she didnt win that reasonable debate and it (The White House) failed to pay attention to effective arguments.
But it is better late than never. Today, it finally looks like Barack Obama has taken the lead. The Drug Czar of that nation, Gil Kerlikowske, recognizes the inefficiency of anti-drug politics. He is attacking the consumption of drugs and that is the indispensible solution to the travesty of drug use.
The plan of the Obama Administration basically is to reduce drug consumption by 15% among young people within the next 5 years, and to reduce overall consumption and drug deaths. This is the action recommended by experts. Very well. If this doesnt work, he doesnt have any option left but to look toward legalization of drugs. This is not foolishness, but the natural course that the public officials have when they analyze it in terms of efficiency.
