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

When President Barack Obama issued his executive action on immigration, a lot of the work fell to the Homeland Security Department. 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.
