The Department of Homeland Security plays a critical role in enforcing trade laws that protect the public health and safety of American consumers. Every day, DHS personnel serving at our nation’s border facilitate billions of dollars in imports and exports and help ensure that American businesses get the benefit of all the economic opportunities the United States has negotiated over the years. From this unique vantage point, we recognize the importance of comprehensive, enforceable trade agreements to global trade and national economic competitiveness.
DHS leads and supports many activities that provide essential support to national and economic security including, but not limited to: maximizing collections of customs revenue; maintaining the safety and security of the marine transportation system; preventing the exploitation of children; providing law enforcement training; and coordinating with the Federal Government’s response to global intellectual property theft. DHS contributes in many ways to these elements of broader U. S. national and economic security while fulfilling its other five homeland security missions.
