David North, Senior Fellow, Center for Immigration Studies

U.S. Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have new orders for dealing with illegal immigrants. Under the President's immigration plan, agents are supposed to ask illegal immigrants if they might qualify for deferred deportation. And now Homeland Security has furnished immigrants with three complaint hotlines they can call if they feel they're treated unfairly. There's one for Customs and Border Protection, one for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and one for Citizenship and Immigration Services. David North, a senior fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain how this can all possibly work.

Dana Leigh Marks, President, National Association of Immigration Judges

President Barack Obama's executive orders on immigration have had reverberations throughout the federal government. They've drastically changed the way Border Patrol and Immigration officers do their jobs. The changes also heavily impacted immigration judges, delaying many of their thousands of pending cases by as much as five years. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, Judge Dana Leigh Marks, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges, explained just how overloaded the court systems already are.

Shawn Moran, Vice President, National Border Patrol Council

As part of the Obama administration's strategy for dealing with immigration, immigration enforcement and customs and border patrol officers have new orders. They must now ask immigrants they encounter living in the country illegally whether they might qualify to avoid deportation. Agents also have been told to review government files to identify any jailed immigrants they might be able to release. It means a lot for work and a new change in mind-set for Customs and Border Protection agents. Shawn Moran, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain how it's going.

Randolph Alles, Assistant Commissioner, Office of Air and Marine

Eight years after unmanned aircraft became a part of border security, the effectiveness of the program remains a question mark. A new Homeland Security inspector general audit says Customs and Border Protection never developed performance measures. Investigators found aircraft don't meet flight goals, and CBP has way undercalculated flight costs. The agency, however, disputes those findings. For the management side of the story, Randolph "Tex" Alles, assistant commissioner of the Office of Air and Marine at CBP, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive. His first bone to pick concerned how long the drones are supposed to be in the air.
