How Governments Have Changed

From Earth to Terrarum

United States of America, Earth

As someone who came from Earth and the United States who came to settle on this gorgeous new planet, I felt the need to talk about what happened on September 11, 2001. I always heard about this every time it was September 11 and I remembered that the American government changed so much.


Air Travel


The more obvious changes were air travel. The reason was because after 9/11, the U.S.A P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act (a ten letter acronym for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism) was in act. Then, more acts were made more toward air travel such as the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, a new Transportation Security Admission (TSA) procedure, and how planes could be built differently. Pilots now can also apply to become an official flight deck officer which means they could carry a loaded gun on the plane.

Government


Although the Patriot Act was the most known for the time, there were 130 documents related to 9/11 in the legislation. The government also made new agencies like the U.S. Immigration Service.


Immigration, Tourism, and Deportation


International tourism dropped the three years after 9/11. In 2004, the number of immigrants rose up to pre-9/11 numbers. An increase in deportations also occurred between 2001 and 2010 by 104 percent. Most of the deportations were made in Central America.

Impact of Civil Rights Laws

The Civil Rights Laws came after decades of judgement and inequality. These Civil Rights Laws in education will help give a better picture.


  • Removing Racial Barriers in Education
  • Removing Gender Barriers in Education
  • Removing Disability Barriers in Education
  • Removing Age Barriers in Education

When all these were implanted into Earth's education system, we got a higher graduation rate and more jobs were taken and more jobs were made.
