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.

Tim Sullivan, Partner, Thompson Coburn LLP

Dealings between contractors and the government can get difficult and contentious. Yet it's important to keep discussions from getting overly nasty or personal. It may be tempting at times, but it will cost you in the long run. That's according to Tim Sullivan, a partner at the law firm Thompson Coburn and author of the blog, "A Government Contractor's 10 Commandments." On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he tackled the seventh commandment: Thou shall avoid hostilities. Even though there are processes for protests, disputes and appeals, a contractor should exercise caution and restraint when pursuing these avenues.

Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

Political leaders from both the White House and Congress are offering up ways to improve the Senior Executive Service. There's the mundane the White House is launching a candidate development program. And the punitive legislation that would make it easier to fire SES members when things go wrong. Now in our special report, "Fixing the SES," we ask: Is it actually broken? Jeri Buchholz is an SES member and chief human capital officer at NASA.
