On September 11, 2001, the United States faced a catastrophic terrorist attack on our own soil. This attack reshaped many aspects of U.S. policies and practices to prevent terrorism and other threats. Some changes were designed to enhance travel security, strengthen border protection, enforce immigration and deportation regulations and enact stricter legislation for surveillance and obstruction of terrorist activities. These changes were designed to help the United States prepare for, respond to and recover from terrorism activities.
