In almost three decades with the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Richard K. Rogers has policed the borders with Mexico and Canada, worked to deport Nazi war criminals and helped break up smuggling rings. But his biggest challenge was his final one: heading the INS' huge Los Angeles office, the agency's largest and, many agree, its most difficult to handle, encompassing a seven-county region the size of Kentucky.
