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.

Gil Kerlikowske, Commissioner, Customs and Border Protection

Customs and Border Protection has been steadily increasing its number of agents. But recently the agency commissioned a recruitment drive aimed at boosting the ranks of female agents. Only about 5 percent of CBP's 21,000 agents are women. But with more and more women trying to cross the Mexican border, CBP officials think having more women agents could help. Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske spoke with Tom Temin on the Federal Drive about the agency's push to hire more female agents, starting with the results of its recruitment drive.

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

You might say Customs and Border Protection had a busy summer. The agency had to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors. Tens of thousands of them flooded across the Mexican border. CBP handled all it with limited funding. It also faced claims that agents used excessive force at detention centers and against people trying to cross into the United States illegally. Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the next steps.

More than 3,000 Border Patrol agents are working along the Texas-Mexico border as the nation deals with a surge in illegal immigration.

It had announced plans to hire 2,000 officers. Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to give a close up view at the stresses on the border patrol.
