2 DHS Mission Prevent terrorist attacks within the U.S. Reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism.Minimize the damage from potential attacks and natural disasters.The mission of the Department of Homeland Security, outlined in the National Strategy for Homeland Security of July 2002, is straightforward yet important:Prevent terrorist attacks. The first priority of homeland security is to prevent terrorist attacks. The United States aims to deter all potential terrorists from attacking America through our commitment to defeating terrorism wherever it appears. We also strive to detect terrorists before they strike, to prevent them and instruments of terror from entering our country, and to take decisive action to eliminate the threat that they pose.2) Reduce our vulnerability to terrorism. We must recognize that as a vibrant and prosperous free society, we present an ever-evolving, ever-changing target. The department is working with private sector to identify and protect our critical infrastructure and key assets, detect terrorist threats, and augment our defenses. Because we refuse to allow the threat of terrorism to alter the American way of life, we accept some level of risk as a permanent condition.3) Respond and recover to any future attacks or natural disasters quickly and with as little damage and loss of life as possible. The United States will prepare to manage the consequences of any future terrorist attack that may occur despite our best efforts at prevention. Therefore, the department of homeland security seeks to improve the systems and prepare the individuals that will respond to acts of terror. Our greatest chance to minimize loss of life and property lies with our first responders – police officers, firefighters, emergency medical providers, public works personnel, and emergency management officials.
3 DHS Background September 11, 2001: Terrorists attack America. October 8, 2001: President George W. Bush creates White House Office of Homeland Security.June 2002: President George W. Bush introduces to Congress his proposal for a new Department.November 2002: Congress passes the Homeland Security Bill.November 25, 2002: President Bush signs the Homeland Security Act into law.January 24, 2003: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is born.March 1, 2003: Majority of the affected agencies join the new Department of Homeland Security.Gaps were revealed by the devastating attacks of September 11, “We face new threats,” President Bush told the nation, “and therefore we need new defenses for our country.”In response, the President created something new: a Cabinet-level Office of Homeland Security at the White House. In the words of his Executive Order, this new Office was designed to “develop and coordinate” a “comprehensive national strategy” to secure the homeland. To lead this effort, he chose a trusted and capable public servant, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge.In June of 2002, the White House took the next step and asked Congress to create a Department of Homeland Security. The objective of the new Department was to unify the efforts of nearly two dozen agencies, bringing homeland security under one roof and one chain of command. The President sought to make the Department as effective and accountable as possible. In particular it was important that the Department have the authority to put the right people in the right place at the right time to meet the latest threat.In November of 2002, Congress passed a bill creating the Department of Homeland Security and President Bush signed it into law on November 25th.We have been working ever since to build this new Department. And on March 1st, most of the affected agencies joined the Department of Homeland Security. It is the largest and most significant transformation of American government since the Truman Administration.
4 DHS PurposeHomeland security functions traditionally have been dispersed among dozens of federal agencies and thousands of first responder groups across America.DHS streamlines and centralizes federal actions into one cohesive unit. It provides one point of contact for state and local groups and the private sector.The result is a better prepared America.Now that you know a little about the history of the Department, let me tell you how it works.The existing homeland security structure that had built up over time was not conducive to coordination and mobilization. Border protection was divided between the Treasury, Justice and Agriculture Departments, among others. Emergency preparedness and response was divided between FEMA, Health and Human Services, DOJ and Energy. Commerce, the FBI, the Department of Energy and the Department of Defense all shared responsibility for protecting our critical infrastructure.We needed to create one Department that brought these entities under a common mission and chain of command.We also saw the need to streamline and centralize our federal actions. As Secretary Ridge has said again and again, homeland security is a national, not a federal effort. An important goal is to provide one point of contact, one voice, to our partners who share so much of the responsibility for homeland security: state and local governments, first responders, and the private sector.The creation of the Department of Homeland Security will lead to a better prepared – and better defended – nation.
5 DHS Goals Integrate Department Functions Develop New Service CapabilitiesEnhance Access to InformationEstablish RegionsSupport State, Local and Private Sector ActivitiesPreserve Individual Freedoms and Ensure Economic SecurityThe 2003 and 2004 investments will help us meet our goals for the Department.Integration. We are committed to organizing traditional security functions in new and better ways. Achieving this integration is the key to improving our operational effectiveness.2) New capabilities. We will not measure progress simply by new funding or “inputs,” but rather by “outcomes,” new capabilities to fight terrorism. This is a metrics based approach that places a premium on developing new products that have quantifiable results that prove their usefulness.Access to information. Our proposed Terrorist Threat Integration Center is one example of how we are working to tear down the information “stovepipes” – both horizontally, between federal agencies and vertically, between the federal government and state and local officials and law enforcement.Establish Regions. Decentralizing operational control and decision-making is the foundation of our new integrated Department structure. Working through the Under Secretaries, the Secretary will coordinate the Department’s policies, consistent with our strategic vision; then the regions will implement those policies and apply them to the local management of local operations. In other words: we will “plan globally, and act locally.” Although we are looking at a variety of different options, there have been no decisions made yet with respect to what a new regional system might look like.5) Support of state, local and private sector activities. Partnerships are the key to homeland security. Our ability to pre-empt or respond to a crisis depends heavily on state and local governments and law enforcement. Our effectiveness in deterring and preventing a terrorist act relies greatly on the private sector. As I mentioned earlier, 85% of critical infrastructure in this country is owned by the private sector – a robust partnership with them to coordinate protective measures will be key to our success.6) Preserve individual freedoms and ensure economic security. As the President said, in defending the homeland “we will not sacrifice the freedoms that make our land unique.” Working through the Department’s Privacy Officer, we will uphold the laws of the land and the Constitution as we protect the privacy and freedoms of citizens. And we will keep our economy going strong through “smart border” agreements, our Container Security Initiative, the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism and other programs that not only increase security across our borders, but improve efficiency and enhance trade.
6 2004 DHS Budget The FY 04 is a 2% increase over FY 03 FY 04 budget is $30.4 billionBudget Highlights:$5.8 billion for customs and border protection$4.6 billion for TSA$4.2 billion for “first responders”$6.8 billion for the Coast Guard$890 million for the president’s “Project Bioshield” to develop and stockpile vaccines and treatments for chemical and biological weapons$60 million to help civilian passenger jets evade shoulder-fired missiles
7 DHS OrganizationDHS combines 22 federal agencies into four policy directorates:Border and Transportation SecurityODP is under the BTS DirectorateEmergency Preparedness and ResponseInformation Analysis and Infrastructure ProtectionScience and TechnologyThe fifth directorate focuses on Management.The U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Secret Service and Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Service exist as distinct entities.The agencies that make up the Department encompass a range of skill sets and specialties. The Department of Homeland Security is divided into four policy directorates: Border and Transportation Security; Emergency Preparedness and Response; Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection; and Science and Technology. A fifth directorate, management, will concentrate on management and budget issues.Two vitally important organizations – the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Secret Service – will report directly to the Secretary. Their protective functions and special expertise add unique capabilities to the Department . In addition, the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration will specialize in providing services to the immigrant community and will report directly to the Deputy Secretary.

9 Agencies Transferred Into the Border and Transportation Security Directorate Office for Domestic Preparedness – transferred from DOJ (slated to move out of BTS and will be absorbed into the Office of State and Local Government Coordination, directly under the DHS Secretary)Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (TREAS)Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DOJ)Transportation Security Administration (DOT)Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (TREAS)BTS is comprised of:Bureau of Customs and Border Protection;Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement;Transportation Security Administration;Federal Law Enforcement Training Center;Office of Domestic Preparedness;The Homeland Security Act restructured INS, Customs and the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service creating two new organizations:Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (BCBP) was formed by combining inspectors from AQI program, INS inspection and customs and incorporates the border patrol. BCBP will focus on the movement of goods and people across our border. This consolidation allows the United States to present “one face” at the border to ensure consistent and thorough application of national immigration, customs and agricultural inspection laws.Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was formed by combining the enforcement and investigation arms of Customs, INS, and the Federal Protective Service. ICE’s focus will be enforcing the full range of immigration and customs laws and investigating their violations both within the US and abroad.Since its establishment just over a year ago, the Transportation Security Agency has met the Congressional deadlines for enhancing the security of our nation’s air transportation systems for the nearly 600 million commercial passengers who fly into, out of, or around the U.S. every year. They will continue to work in this important area in the future, while expanding their attention to include all modes of transportation such as railways, roadways, and pipeline transportation.Located in Glynco, GA, FLETC’s organizational inclusion within BTS will facilitate greater “customer service” to the federal law enforcement officers in BICE, BCBP and TSA and ensure training consistency with the thousands of state and local law enforcement officers who receive FLETC’s training service.And by having the state and local domestic preparedness grants managed out of BTS’ ODP, a unity of effort will be ensured between the state and local first responders and the nation’s federal first responders.
10 Agencies Transferred Into the Emergency Preparedness and Response Directorate Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)Strategic National Stockpile (HHS)National Disaster Medical System (HHS)Nuclear Incident Response Team (Energy)Domestic Emergency Support Teams (DOJ)FEMAFEMA joins the department as a 2,500-person agency supplemented by more than 5,000 stand-by disaster reservists. It has a mission to lead America to prepare for, prevent, respond to and recover from disasters and terrorist attacks.DHS will consolidate incoming assets and response plans into one National Response Plan. The National Response Plan will be supported by a National Incident Management System that FEMA will maintain. This system will enhance the country’s response to terrorist attacks and natural disasters by creating an interoperable response among federal, state, and local authorities.In addition, FEMA will bring several assets and capabilities to the Department including:Strategic National StockpileDHS will ensure the availability and rapid deployment of life-saving pharmaceuticals, antidotes, other medical supplies, and equipment necessary to counter the effects of nerve agents, biological pathogens, and chemical agents. DHS will have the capability to immediately deploy the Stockpile to anywhere in the U.S. or its territories, in 12 hours or less, in the event of a terrorist attack using a biological toxin or chemical agent directed against a civilian population. The DHS will direct the Strategic National Stockpile during an actual or threatened terrorist attack, major disaster, or other emergency. Prior to an event, DHS will oversee HHS’ management of the SNS to ensure its readiness to respond.National Disaster Medical SystemDHS will maintain National Disaster Medical Teams that will establish a single, integrated national medical response capability for assisting state and local authorities in dealing with the medical and health effects of major disasters and terrorist attacks.The medical response component of the System consists of such response teams as Disaster Medical Assistance Teams, Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Teams, Veterinary Medical Assistance Teams, National Medical Response Teams for WMD, an International Medical/Surgical Medical Response Team, and other Specialty Teams such as Burn, Pediatric, and Mental Health. In addition, the NDMS has the capability to evacuate disaster victims to available participating civilian hospitals for definitive medical care.Nuclear Incident Response TeamRadiological emergency response assets of DOE will be under the operational control of the Secretary of Homeland Security during an actual or threatened terrorist attack, major disaster, or other emergency. Among the assets DHS will direct are the Nuclear Emergency Support Team, Atmospheric Release Advisory Capability, Radiological Assistance Program, and the Aerial Measuring System.Domestic Emergency Support TeamDHS will direct this specialized interagency US Government team designed to expeditiously provide expert advice, guidance and support to the On-Scene Commander during a weapons of mass destruction incident or credible threat.Incident Management TeamsSpecially trained and equipped Incident Management Teams, located strategically within regions, created for rapid deployment to support management of large-scale and complex emergencies/disasters through subject matter expertise.Urban Search-and-RescueProvides the ability to locate, rescue, and provide initial medical stabilization for victims trapped in confined spaces as the result of structural collapse. These teams are strategically located throughout the country.
11 Entities Transferred Into the Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection Directorate Critical Infrastructure Assurance Office (DOC)Federal Computer Incident Research Center (GSA)National Communications System (DOD)National Infrastructure Protection Center (FBI)Office of Energy Assurance/National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center (DOE)The following agencies have folded into the IAIP Directorate. (list above) We are already at work with other Departments and agencies on long-term national protection plans for each sector of critical infrastructure -- ranging from transportation and energy to food and water to financial institutions and cyberspace. In fact, our first two plans - - the National Strategy for the Physical Protection of Critical Infrastructure and Key Assets, and the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace – have already been released, and are available to the public on our Department’s web site.
12 Programs Transferred Into the Science and Technology Directorate CBRN Countermeasures Program (DOE)Environmental Measurements Laboratory (DOE)National Biological Warfare Defense Analysis Center (DOD)Plum Island Animal Disease Center (USDA)These transferred programs will provide the initial foundation for the Science and Technology Directorate to meet its objectives.

14 United States Secret Service (USSS) Protect the President and other government leaders.Plan, coordinate and implement security for designated national special security events (NSSE).Protect U.S. currency from counterfeiters and safeguarding Americans from credit card fraud.Emphasize prevention through protective intelligence and threat assessment.Apply dual mission to protect nation’s key assets and critical infrastructure.Established in 1865 to suppress counterfeit currency, the Secret Service mission has evolved to respond to the nation’s needs. The agency’s initial mandate was to protect the nation’s money supply during the civil war. Following the assassination of President McKinley in 1901, the Secret Service was given a new mission – protecting the President. Protection remains the primary mission of the Secret Service.The agency is also responsible for the coordination of Federal counter-terrorism assets for events of national significance. When an event is designated a National Special Security Event, the Secret Service assumes its mandated role as the lead for the design and implementation of the operational security plan. The Secret Service has developed a core strategy of forming partnerships with law enforcement and other security and public safety officials to provide a safe and secure environment for protectees, the event participants and the general public.A principle component of homeland security is economic security and the protection of our monetary and financial payment systems. As financial payment systems have evolved, so has our investigative mission. The Secret Service has developed new tools to combat the growing areas of cyber-terrorism, financial crime and computer fraud, including the widely respected Electronic Crimes Special Agent Program, and a network of Electronic Crimes Task Forces.The protective and investigative missions of the Secret Service complement the operational parameters of each of the five directorates. The Service’s core philosophy of prevention mirrors that of the department. Like the Service, the new department will be prepared to respond to incidents and threats through anticipation, preparation, and prevention. The Secret Service will draw upon its unique experience and expertise to strengthen both our homeland security – including the protection of our elected leaders and national events – and economic security, by ensuring America’s financial stability and contributing to the protection of its key assets and critical infrastructures.
15 United States Coast Guard (USCG) Maritime Homeland Security - Protect ports, waterways, & flow of commerce from terrorism - Secure maritime borders against illegal drugs, illegal aliens, firearms, & WMDNational Defense - Armed Service at all times - Port Operations, Security, and Defense - Ensure rapid deployment and re-supply of military assets - Force provider for National Military Commands (NORTHCOM, et al)Protection of Natural Resources - Prevention and response to oil & hazardous material spills. - Protect against illegal fishing & destruction of natural resourcesMaritime Mobility - Waterways Management, Ice-breaking, Aids to NavigationMaritime Safety - Search & Rescue - Commercial & recreational boating safetyThe United States Coast Guard’s homeland security mission is not new. It is more visible today than it was prior to the tragic events of September 11, 2001, but it is just as important as when the Coast Guard first began protecting our national sovereignty 211 years ago. The five mission areas seen here all serve the department’s goals of preventing terrorist attacks, reducing vulnerability to attacks, and minimizing the damage from and recovering from attacks that do occur.The CG maintains a clear vision and keen sense of vigilance while keeping watch for threats to our security and those who would do us harm.The Coast Guard protects more than 361 ports and 95,000 miles of coastline, America’s longest border. The Coast Guard is well suited to provide homeland security thanks to its unique maritime, multi-mission, and military character. The Coast Guard is at once a warrior, a constable, a regulator, a life-saver, and an environmentalist. Each of these complimentary roles are vital to the security of the homeland.
16 Bureau of Citizenship & Immigration Services (BCIS) Immigrant and nonimmigrant sponsorship.Adjustment of immigrant status.Work authorization and other permits.Naturalization of qualified applicants for citizenship.Asylum or refugee processing.Visa issuance to foreign nationals.DHS eliminated the competing priorities that existed under the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) by separating services from enforcement. While Border and Transportation Security is responsible for enforcement of our nation's immigration laws, the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services dedicates its full energies to providing efficient immigration services and streamline the transition to American citizenship.The Bureau for Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS), under DHS will continue the tradition of welcoming immigrants into the country by administering the above services. The Department will make certain that America continues to welcome visitors and those who seek opportunity within our shores while excluding terrorists and their supporters.ADD SOMETHING ABOUT HOW BCIS WILL UTILIZE TECHNOLOGY TO MAKE A SAFER MORE SECURE IMMIGRATION PROCESS – SO WE KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR X WHILE MAKING A MORE SEAMLESS PROCESS FOR THEMThe Director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, Eduardo Aguirre, reports directly to the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security.
