Border control

Homeland security functions associated with maintaining U.S. borders, including customs and immigration, port security, and surveillance of American airspace. The Department of Homeland Security, along with its sub-agencies (e.g., Coast Guard and Customs and Border Protection), is the dominant border control organization, but many military and law enforcement organizations also are deeply involved in the mission of border control.
