This chapter discusses the actions taken by the United States to fight terrorism and improve national security. After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, U.S. President George W. Bush announced the creation of a federal Office of Homeland Security. Security measures in U.S. airports were tightened. The immigration policy in the country was also improved. In October 2001 the U.S. Congress passed a law giving the government more power to investigate and fight terrorism.
