Former Customs And Border Commissioner Speaking At UAlbany
A wall along the southern border to be paid for by Mexico was one of President Donald Trump’s signature campaign promises — and seeing it through continues to be a goal of the Republican’s administration. Alan Bersin served as Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection from 2010 to 2011 under President Obama. Bersin is now a fellow at Harvard University and chair of the consultant organization BorderWorks Group. He is scheduled to discuss trade, migration and border security at the University at Albany tonight at 7.
Bersin spoke with WAMC’s Jim Levulis about the effectiveness of the Trump administration’s border security approach.
Thursday night's event is being held in the multi-purpose room at UAlbany's Campus Center West.
