America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001. Little did we know that this would affect the nation for years to come. Shortly after the attacks on 9/11 the Government acted very quickly. As stated in an article by Jaeshin Kim, “The Bush Administration launched the bombing of Afghanistan, and Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act allowing law enforcement powers to detain foreign nationals or immigrants suspected of terrorism” (Kim 1). In situations as these, the President has no option but to quickly react, so he did.
There has to be more research done in order to identify the reason behind the bombing. Governor Cuomo states that this violent incident will not let Americans live in fear. As a result, the bombing is making the presidential candidates to demonstrate their qualities of leadership. The bomb attack is a reason why many view the United States an unsafe place. Terrorism has always been one of the biggest problems the
Let’s look at what happen post 9/11. After it’s devastation, the Department of Homeland Security was created to assist in fighting the “war” against terrorism. The DHS implemented many “strategies” to help fight this war, including increasing airport security. American parents protested that TSA agents were groping their kids, and “(Janet) Napolitano (former DHS Secretary) defiantly retorted that if people did not want their children groped, they should yield and use the unpopular full-body machines – the machines being sold by her predecessor, (Michael) Chertoff” (Turley, 3). These full body scanners, which Chertoff had a hand in getting into the airports, were “heavily criticized (and little tested)”, and were sold by a company which was a client of Chertoff’s consulting agency (Turley, 3).
Evidently, some had predicted the events that took place during this period as analysts had indicated that New Orleans was sitting on a time bomb. The injuries and human deaths as well as damage and destruction to property that were witnessed during the period were results of long periods of political disputes, unstructured land development and mismanaged planning. However, the disaster took place and the New Orleans population has made significant steps towards moving on and reconstructing their lives. All strategies by the government and populations in New Orleans have been focused towards rebuilding a familiar New Orleans as well as reconstruction in a safer and more equitable way. Indeed, the victims as well as stakeholders in the New Orleans area have learnt significant lessons after the hurricane and they are using these lessons to reconstruct their lives and their
Everyone have an opinion on this and many of them are probably very good opinions but I have seen new discussions rise from people and politicians after the new restriction and border security made by the Swedish and German government and let 's not forget about the terrorist attack in France. People do not want immigrant. We brits have slowly with the rest of the European nation turned more nationalistic towards immigration and yes, you must be correct that we cannot have more immigrants from the middle east into our nation,
Many of us remember the events of 9/11, witnessing terrorism on our doorstep. Our carefree world had changed in an instant on that day. Terrorism on our turf demonstrated how vulnerable we are quickly reminding us that we are not as indestructible as we may have previously thought. Terrorism comes in many forms, from a single person wishing to make a political statement or religious groups who wish to spread fear in order to attain ideological goals (Haddow, Bullock, & Coppola, 2014). The targets of the attacks that day were specific to the terrorist but gave us insight as to the vulnerability many of our critical infrastructures are to the terrorism.
There were many people jailed with one reason, they are Muslims. It constitutes a dictatorship type of government and not a constitutional government that promoted democracy. They also did not respect and appreciate the international law. Action should be taken even though US is a strong and major countries, but, human right must be prioritised. The act of President Bush accused Osama as the main actor of the attack, we could see it clearly that his ‘intelligence’ which because they can know who the real enemy is in just few hours of the attacks.
Johnson's term. She brings up how the government realized that this was an escalating problem in the economy that they wanted to fix and they took action. She mentioned programs like “Head Start”, “Medicaid”, “Legal Services”, and “Job Corps”. After giving those examples of actions took she then went on to the truth as to why it didn't work and that's because the government just didn't have enough money to help the programs out simply because they were fighting another war which was the one in vietnam also known as one of the deadliest wars in american history. This was important in her structure of the article because it gives readers a little knowledge on the situation before jumping into it, it builds pre knowledge which will later help go into supporting her
In the midst of potential war and terror many are worried of what the future holds. This is how the American people felt after the terrible terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001. The government had to think fast and make brash decisions to protect our country, and The Patriot Act (during the time) was the best solution. The Patriot Act was one of the fastest acts passed, many government officials were only thinking of the present, and ways to prevent foreign attack. The act has been edited several times over the years due to many mistakes of violating individual’s rights.
This power and freedom have caused other people to lose their freedom. With the prevalence of mass shootings in our free country, we need to enact tough, strict laws on guns to prevent any of this from happening again. The occurrence of these mass shootings relates on how fast it takes to possess a firearm. Stricter laws may increase the amount of time it takes to buy a gun. Although, 2nd Amendment activists believe that gun control is unconstitutional, thus delaying Congress to enact any laws.
Crime was perceived to have increased due to politicians and the federal government preying on society’s fear of crime to further their political campaigns and agendas. Once our nation believed poverty, drugs, or race were the driving factors of crime countless policies were brought about to imprison anyone who seemingly threatened America’s future. These policies were not informed by any research and many have been evaluated and deemed ineffective. But society wants quick fixes to crime issues and incapacitation has been our quick fix. Despite research determining that mandatory minimums, capital punishment,
This challenge, however, may not matter much because the voters are getting a constant exposure to news about immigration since he is always addressing the issue and there are always crime-related news in mainstream American media. So, for majority of the voters, who do not know the exact number of crimes and harm caused by illegal immigrants in the US, somehow make a connection between the two. As a result, the probability of voters’ to vote for an anti-immigrant party is drastically increased. The more, henceforth, immigration is talked about and the more crime related news keep coming, voters are ikey to vote for anti immigration party. This may explain why Trump is leading in most of the polls, not because voters like
Since they have added more security there are still just as many terrorist attacks as there were before we supposable added more security. In the end result it is only making there job easier and our lives more stressful. “The government, have claimed that since this program has been released they have stopped more than 50 attacks”. Why would they release that information and not that they had this program in the first place? I believe that is a made up number to cover their butts for the real one.
4 & 5) (Johnston, 2015, graph) The FBI should focus more on how to prevent drug crime. Many policies were put into effect because of how massive the terrorist attack of 9-11 were. These policies are a huge part of what American and it 's government is today. Without some of these policies we could be in the equal amount of danger we were 14 years ago with 9-11. These polices are part of how life is now.
