WASHINGTON (AP) - Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is naming a "border czar" to oversee issues related to drug-cartel violence along the U.S.-Mexico border and the hundreds of thousands of people who try to enter the U.S. illegally through the Southwest.
An Obama administration official says Napolitano on Wednesday will name Alan Bersin, a former federal prosecutor, to fill the new post at the Homeland Security Department. The official would speak only on condition of anonymity ahead of the announcement expected in El Paso, Texas.
The Obama administration has promised to crack down on border violence and work with Mexican authorities to curb drugs and arms trafficking. Hundreds of federal agents, along with high-tech surveillance gear and drug-sniffing dogs, are being deployed to the Southwest.
From 1993 to 1998, Bersin was the federal prosecutor who led the government's crackdown on illegal immigrants at the California-Mexico border. Bersin and Napolitano were both U.S. attorneys during the Clinton administration.

Proof that Obama has no intention of addressing the problem.
Steve Summers of Cinci’s WLW am700 (trucking talker) had a truck exec on tonight who has trucking connections in Mexico. The exec (Smith- Conyers trucking) says American truckers will lose jobs to Mexican nationals and might serve as major carriers for California produce due to California’s new “enviro-waco*” restrictions on trucks because of the NAFTA loophole.
note* my interpretation not the execs
Now WHO would Janet Napolitano name as “Border Czar”?????
This is a joke, right?
This Czar crap is too much. Who does this adminississy POTUS think he is- a Soviet Marxist?
I thought only the Tsar could appoint a czar.
I should have noted that nothing in that press release mentions the trucking problem. It just shows where Napolito is comming from
I nominate Janet Reno. She can point the guns back at our side of the border against American Right-Wing Conservative Extremists (like me).
Well, they will appoint someone with corrupt links to Mexico
and this is just window dressing. Prepare for further invasion
and legalization of drug cartel Mexicans. Apparently, we are
inviting people in to kill us.
A former Federal Prosecutor.....what a joke.....what we need is a former military General or Admiral.
$5 will get you $10 that she names a gun banner! Stupid oaf woman.
I think you meaan HPOTUS.
She might appoint him, because he ENDORSED this Socialist moonbat in her run for Governor in ‘02.
