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.
