Bersin: Border is safe

Bersin: Border is safe

"The federal government?s top border official, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin, fought back this week against heightened criticism of President Obama?s border security policy, saying the present-day border is more secure than ever. At the same conference, U.S. Rep. Silvestre Reyes, D-El Paso, responded to Gov. Rick Perry's bid for the White House by telling a reporter, ?I have to go to the bathroom and throw up.? The congressman has long been a critic of what he says is Perry's misrepresentation of the border as a lawless territory." Julian Aguilar, Texas Tribune, Aug. 17, 2011.
