(CNSNews.com) – U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin, who oversees both the Customs Service and the Border Patrol, says the United States needs to undertake a “paradigm shift” in how it views the U.S.-Mexico border.

This shift, Bersin explained in a speech last Thursday at the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., would include both a “road to citizenship” for illegal aliens and understanding that the “best way” to secure the border is to allow Mexicans to work in the United States legally in the future—to create what he called “a legitimate labor market between the United States and Mexico.”

On Monday, a CBP spokesperson told CNSNews.com that what Bersin meant by this was “having a temporary worker program that is conducive to our labor needs.”

The unemployment rate in the United States was at 9.6 percent in September and has been at 9.5 percent or higher since August 2009, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

President Barack Obama appointed Bersin to oversee U.S. border security in March. Bersin, a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard who also won a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford and a Yale law degree, formerly served as secretary of education for the state of California and as chairman of the San Diego Regional Airport Authority.

On Thursday, Bersin told the Migration Policy Institute that when U.S. President Barack Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon met in May they “articulated the vision for this new era—the creation of a 21st Century border, one that enhances our security and mutual economic competitiveness in an increasingly globalized world.”
