Operation Eagle Claw saw the attempted use of aircraft to perform a highly sophisticated, joint force, nighttime hostage rescue in a hostile country. The mission was a failure, with only 5 of the eight RH-53D Sea Stallion helicopters arriving to the forward staging area. Further exasperating the mission failure was the collision of an RH-53D and a C-130 cargo plane while conducting refueling operations for the mission, resulting in 8 casualties. Following the April 1980 failure of Operation Eagle Claw, the attempted U.S. hostage rescue in Iran, President Carter appointed Admiral James L. Holloway III, the former Chief of Naval Operations to head a commission to study the deficiencies revealed by the operation (Federal Research
The main mission of the ERO is to deal with any undocumented immigrants who pose as a danger to the American public. There are three main areas of focus that ERO does, which are all three equally important to them. First, they enforce the America’s immigration laws following every protocol to ensure they are acting in a fair and effective manner (ice.gov). They identify and apprehend any undocumented immigrant that is considered removable and throw them into detention when it is absolutely necessary to do so. Secondly, they have a list of priorities for the apprehension, arrest, and removal of convicted criminals, and those that are considered a danger to the people of the United States.
“The world changed on September 11, 2001. We learned that a threat that gathers on the other side of the earth could strike our own cities and kill our own citizens. It is an important lesson; one we can never forget. Oceans no longer protect America from the dangers of this world. We are protected by daily vigilance at home.

The border between the United States and Mexico is nearly 2,000 miles long. Over the past few years, the United States had form a policy called Secure Fence Act to prevent drug sellers and terrorists out of America (Clifford). The act constructed fences to cover about one third of the border between Mexico and America along California, New Mexico, Texas and so on. Unfortunately, there were less environmental considerations when making the policy. The Los Angeles Times reported that in additional to build the fences, the United States government has been eluded over thirty environmental and cultural laws (Campbell).
In class last week, we discussed how a border is defined not merely as a political line dividing nations, but an undefined barrier that exists between different cultures. A borderland in Texas, I thought, was just cities or towns that just happen to reside along the border after the U.S. acquisition of Texas in 1848. I never thought much of the community within the borderland areas other than believing that most communities there had a deep-rooted Mexican culture. However, Gloria Anzaldúa best defined the border as, “a vague and undetermined place created by the emotional residue of an unnatural boundary.” The community within the borderlands is not as simply defined as a borderline.
To start off with the most important thing about the 4th amendment is that we the people should for safe to go in public and not be afraid to be searched unless the police have probable cause, and reasonable suspicion. The first question i'll be addressing is what fundamental should a American have in the 4th Amendment. Katz v Ohio is a perfect example of what fundamental should a American have in the 4th Amendment, Katz was convicted under an 8-count indictment. I believe the government went too far by attaching a device to hear his conversations, that's invading personal privacy with a non probable cause. The next reason i'll be presenting is writs of assistance.

Throughout the 20th and 21st century, there has been a debate in the United States about whether there should be a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. At this time, there is a border wall between the states of; Texas, California, New Mexico, Arizona and Northern Mexico. The main purpose behind having a border fence is to stop illegal immigrants, criminals, and terrorist from coming into the United States. Currently, in the United States, there are approximately an influx 11 million unauthorized immigrants.
I’m waaaatching you…I’m always watching. Do you realize the NSA (National Security Agency) collects over two hundred million text messages every day? One of the biggest debates occurring in our country today is whether the government should be allowed to use surveillance to maintain order. The monitoring of citizens through surveillance is most definitely an abuse of power because it is unconstitutional, there are less intrusive ways to maintain safety within the country, and it is an invasion of privacy.
