Why The DHS Was Founded
The DHS was created after the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Its main mission is to keep the nation saved from the numerous threats it faces. The DHS is the largest Cabinet department with more than 240,000 officers in various roles – from immigration and customers, disaster prevention and management, cyber security, and aviation and border security.
