WASHINGTON, DC – AUGUST 21: The Department of Homeland Security seal on the podium used by acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan as he announces new rules about how migrant children and families are treated in federal custody at the Ronald Reagan Building August 21, 2019 in Washington, DC. The Trump Administration announced the change in rules that would allow it to indefinitely detain migrant families who cross the border illegally, replacing the Flores Agreement which limited on how long the government could hold migrant children in custody and how they must be cared for.

The Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday issued a national terrorism advisory in what it calls a “heightened threat environment across the U.S.”
Although DHS officials haven’t specified exactly what type of threats the country is facing, they say they’re “motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results and police use of force.”
The advisory is expected to remain in effect until April 30th.
How can DHS officials know we’ll still be threatened in April?
