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.

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.
