As we study this new concept of “Homeland Security,” we quickly learn that threats to national security are not new. In fact, the United States faced major threats to its existence even before it was officially a nation. Identify and describe two such events in U.S. history that occurred after September 11, 2001, and explain why this event/threat is similar to a current emerging homeland security event. Four (4) pages, double spaced.

  1. Legal Research Exercise

Beginning with Executive Order (EO) 13873 signed on May 5, 2019, analyze President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency in regards to securing the information and communications technology and services supply chain. Your paper should clearly discuss the EO’s possible impact on the National Security agenda of protecting citizens from foreign national terrorists while evaluating agency implementation, and the role federal, state, local, and tribal governments to support your argument. All requirements of prompt and format must be met to receive full credit.

Grades are based on the following:

  • Pros vs cons on the EO;
  • Recommendation to your superior on the implementation;
