A few weeks ago you may have heard that another political appointee has failed to follow correct procedures for hiring household employees. President Obama’s appointee, Alan Bersin, ironically was nominated to be Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The CBP has a priority mission to keep terrorists and their weapons out of the US, but also responsible for facilitating trade and travel. In addition, they enforce hundreds of U.S regulations, including immigration and drug laws. Alan Bersin broke the law when he failed to complete an I-9 form for at least one of his many household employees.
