To combat the very real potential for terrorist attacks, the Department of Homeland Security was established to prevent and protect against these threats. With their hatred for American policy and culture, and their disregard for civilian lives, terrorists are a major threat. The foremost job of our government is to protect its people and the Department of Homeland Security is on the front lines of that battle. As well, Homeland Security professionals are first responders to natural disasters. Although similar in capability to the Department of Defense, Homeland Security works within America's borders and is also charged with protecting those borders from incursions by illegal aliens and others who try to enter the country illegally.
