"Securing flows of people and passengers and cargo is key to the success of CBP's integrated mission," said CBP Commissioner Alan Bersin. "Our function is to keep dangerous people and dangerous things away from our homeland. We need to do that in terms of time. The earlier we discover things that we want to identify as risky, the better off we are and the better off our people will be as well."
