Homeland Security Questions

What is Homeland Security?

Homeland Security is an umbrella term for security efforts to protect the U.S. against terroristic activity. It is a concerted national effort to prevent terrorist attacks within the U.S., reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism, and minimize the damage and recover from attacks that do occur. Homeland Security consists of 187 federal agencies and departments along with 14 agencies that make up the intelligence, and they work in tandem to safeguard the safety and security of the nation. However, like any other criminal case sometimes an individual might unwittingly get involved in a homeland security case even without committing a terrorist activity or conspiring against the State. If such a thing may happen, professional or Expert help might be essential. Listed below are a few commonly asked questions regarding Homeland Security that have been answered by Experts.

If someone gets involved in a Homeland Security case what are the odds of winning the case?

The chances of winning the case depend upon various factors. Firstly, it has to be ascertained what the person has been charged with. Usually the method of operations of the Federal Agencies is different than that of the local police and prosecutor. Unlike local police where they sometimes arrest a person without substantial proof, the Federal Agencies charge a person only after gathering ample evidence against him or her. While every individual case is different, the charges in Homeland Security cases are more often likely to be proved in the court.

Can someone rewrite government publications that are listed on the web including Homeland Security issues to make the articles more widely available and charge for the rewriting?

The documents as such cannot be charged for. However, government documents have no copyright. Therefore you can rewrite it in a concise manner to make them more readable and understandable without altering the basic contents. You can also charge money for the searching service and the rewriting done by you.

How does Homeland Security strike a balance with personal freedom of U.S. citizens?

In many opinions, at present the Patriot Act has made a considerable dent into the fundamental right of personal freedom of U.S. citizens. Due to the threat of terrorist activities the Homeland Security Department has been authorized to interfere or spy into private telephonic conversations of individuals, intercept emails, keep tab on banking transactions etc. which many feel has seriously compromised the right to confidentiality and freedom of individuals. Hence, it can perhaps be said that the constitutional right to personal freedom has been sacrificed to a great extent at the altar of war on terror.

In New Jersey s it possible for a lawyer to levy my Homeland Security Disability Pension for a case he fought and won? Since I live outside the U.S. can they issue a subpoena via email?

Usually private judgments cannot be levied from a Federal Pension. So, most likely your pension should not be affected. Since you are outside the country they might send a subpoena via certified mail under New Jersey Courts Rule 1:9-3. Most generally email is not a preferred choice unless in extreme cases. Even if they resort to alternative method of subpoena such as fax or email it is usually rather difficult to execute a subpoena to someone who does not live in the U.S.

How do I know if my name is listed on the Homeland Security Department’s No Fly List and Watch List?

The government does not give this information freely.. It is only when someone faces the problem at the airport that they come to know if his/her name is listed on the No Fly or Watch List. t. Sometimes people have to face difficulty due to a namesake that appears in the list. However, if someone is allowed to board a plane it means that the person is not in the No Fly List, though that does not exclude the possibility of being on the Selectee List.

Post 9/11 Homeland Security has become a part and parcel of the U.S. citizen’s life. While it is essential for the safety and security of the U.S. citizens, at times it might spell trouble for the innocent person who might fall victim to the stringent security measures. An Expert’s help might be required to deal with such circumstances.

  • My sister died unexpectedly 2 weeks ago. We both live in Scottsdale

    My sister died unexpectedly 2 weeks ago. We both live in Scottsdale Az - She was married in Colorado but moved back to Az 2 years ago when her husband kicked her out of the house they shared and asked divorce because she had chronic cluster migraine headaches and was disabled by them. Originally, he was paying her $200 month agreed upon alimony but a few months ago he sent in writing a message that said unless she paid filed , there would be no more alimony and he did stop sending that. She was in the process of filing - They had no contact after that and he went on with his life- enrolled in online dating etc.... The question is: He seems to be considered "next of kin" - he did sign the paper so that I can have her cremated - I know that he will sign whats needed to give me the right to handle affairs because she didn't have more than $200 in the bank, she had bills that are due and he doesn't want to pay final expenses - what do I need to have him sign to make me the person on record to handle her affairs? She filed income tax separately last 2 years - do I file her taxes ?
