Randolph Alles, Assistant Commissioner, Office of Air and Marine

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.
