The New Orleans sector of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection is under new leadership.
Gregory Bovino, a 22-year veteran of the agency, will be taking over the sector which covers nearly 700 miles of coastal border. This includes Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and the Florida Panhandle.
Bovino will be in charge of border patrol stations, which are meant to detect and prevent the illegal entry of people and dangerous material to the United States.
