The article offers a look at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection as well as some outlook concerning customs issues in 2009. One indicator that U.S. President-elect Barack Obama is giving higher priority to immigration and border policy is the nomination of Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Obama's homeland security policy will focus more on the assistance for first responders and improving response to natural disasters. New rules for imports of consumer goods have been implemented in 2008.
