What’s Wrong With This Picture? Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Failed to File Immigration Forms for Household Workers

When Joe-Shmoe forgets to file something like this, well, it’s understandable. Maybe.

But when it’s the Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan D. Bersin? “Unacceptable”, says Sen. Max Bauchus, according to the Washington Post.

At  issue is paperwork known as I-9 forms verifying that household workers can legally work in the U.S.

The Post reports that the Senate Finance Committee found Bersin “employed 10 household employees since 1993 and failed to complete I-9 forms for all of them. The I-9 form is issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which shares immigration enforcement responsibilities with CBP and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

Bersin, who was a presidential recess appointment, must be confirmed by the Senate.

Appearing before the Senate Finance Committee, which is considering his nomination, Bersin said, according to the Post,  that he and his wife tracked the immigration status of house workers “on a piece of paper that was on file in our home.”

“No employee ineligible to work in the United States has ever worked in our household,” Bersin said, according to the Post. “No employee who has worked in our household has not had taxes paid for.”

Bersin told senators that he and his wife tracked the immigration status of a nanny, house cleaners and babysitters “on a piece of paper that was on file in our home.”

“No employee ineligible to work in the United States has ever worked in our household,” Bersin said. “No employee who has worked in our household has not had taxes paid for.”
