One of the key aspects to emphasize to combat terrorism is background checks. Background checks are absolutely necessary for traveling and other admin related tasks. Prior to September 11, many undocumented workers did not have the correct validation, which creates a huge security burden in America.

This new policy has been the hallmark of the new policy at 2015.

The role of militias in DoD is to protect the nation at any cost via surveillance, cyber intelligence, and monitoring domestic activity to be prepared for any situation.
