DHS Accomplishments and Priorities One Year Into the Administration: The Department of Homeland Security has played a prominent role in implementing President Trump’s security-focused agenda. We are securing our borders and enforcing existing immigration laws, while working with Congress to achieve the president’s immigration priorities.

We have elevated our defenses against terrorist threats from around the globe, including tough new screening and vetting measures, historic aviation security enhancements, better information sharing, and adjustments to countering evolving terrorist tactics. At the same time, we have taken steps to protect our homeland against emerging threats from rogue nations, foreign adversaries, and transnational criminals.

DHS also responded to a historic hurricane season, which affected roughly 25.8 million people, as well as devastating western wildfires. We have taken bold steps to more assertively manage national risk, protect critical infrastructure, and bolster our cyber defenses, including directing the removal of nation-state actor affiliated software from government systems.

The policies put in place by this administration have made our nation more secure, and we remain committed to carrying out the president’s agenda which will protect Americans from both domestic and foreign threats.
