Lack of Coordination
A GAO report that criticizes the lack of inter-agency coordination (particularly the DEA and ICE) in combating drug smuggling raised eyebrows here. It was evidently written in March and released yesterday, and I suspect it was part of the reason behind the naming of a border czar. But I'm not convinced a new czar is going to alleviate these issues; since the border's problems are very much related to drug smuggling, won't Bersin inevitably conflict with the drug czar?
