Skip to comments.Border chief scolded for not following hiring law
Posted on 05/13/2010 6:01:10 PM PDT by La Enchiladita
Alan Bersin, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says he didn't know he's required by law to complete a form saying he verified that his household employees were eligible to work in the U.S.
Bersin said he collected Social Security cards, driver's licenses and other documents from 10 household employees he has hired since 1993, to make sure they could work in the U.S.
But he did not fill out and keep a particular form, known as an I-9, which is signed by the employer and employee and details documents accepted to verify the employee's legal status.
Members of the Senate Finance Committee said they are surprised by that, because Bersin was a U.S. attorney.
Obama named Bersin commissioner through 2011 during a congressional recess. He must be confirmed by the Senate to serve longer.

Alan Bersin another, do as I say not as I do, imbecile!
Rather, “I don’t think I’m going to get caught.”
The average person on the street knows what an I-9 is and he doesn’t. Yah, riiiight.........
But whether he filled out an I-9 or not, is there any evidence that his employees were illegal aliens?
“Rules are for the little people.” Vote them out in November!
Scolded? He got scolded? Is that all he got was scolded?
So who has Obamas I-9 as a Lawyer, State and US Senator and President ?
Yeah, that’s what we pay our Senators to do.
I have no comment.......
It's for the little people, like taxes.
I’m sure he was spoken to very harshly. After all, the committee was “surprised” at this indiscretion.
Most everyone else is under the assumption I-9’s are required by “law”.
For shame, Alan...
Ah, there's that Ivy League exceptionalism again.
