The Homeland Security Department's inspector general has chastised the department for sending detainees home on nearly empty flights and failing to record critical information about those detainees, like whether or not they belong to gangs. IG John Roth says the department could have saved more than $40 million through better planning. He joined Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to offer a solution.

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.
