It may even encounter other problems that could impact the ability of your agency to meet its mission. Mark Goldstein is director of Physical Infrastructure Issues at the Government Accountability Office. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said building security is far more complicated than it used to be.

Gil Kerlikowske, Commissioner, U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Customs and Border Protection certainly received its share thanks to new rules for deferred actions on parents of Americans and lawful permanent residents (DAPA). Part of that work means making sure illegal or undocumented immigrants understand the rules and who they apply to. Gil Kerlikowske, the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain how CBP is handling the executive action.
