Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary of homeland security, has announced his department's new strategic framework to address terrorism and targeted violence. The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that its new strategic framework aims to understand the changing terrorism environment, prevent terrorists from U.S. entry and boost defenses of the country's infrastructure.

“Today, the United States faces an evolving threat environment and a threat of terrorism and targeted violence within our borders that is more diverse than at any time since the 9/11 attacks," he said.

McAleenan announced the new framework during an event at the Brookings Institution, a think tank in Washington, D.C. The country's awareness of growing threats has encouraged the department to also cover adversaries at U.S. borders, in addition to terrorists overseas, McAleenan added.
