Bersin Chosen for Border Czar

Alan Bersin, former U.S. Attorney in San Diego, will be named, probably today in El Paso, by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to a newly created post dealing with security problems on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Bersin was U.S. Attorney in San Diego during the Clinton years, then moved to become Superintendent of Schools in San Diego. Governor Schwarznegger then appointed him Education Secretary, and most recently he has been the Chairman of the San Diego Regional Airport Authority. While he was U.S. Attorney he was named the U.S. Attorney General's Southwest Border representative.
