Homeland Security USA is a 2009 reality show. It portrayed members of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies tasked with the security of the US, performing their day-to-day duties. It was the American version of the Australian reality show Border Security. The show premiered on January 6, 2009 on ABC and was put on hiatus May 19, 2009. Prior to the show premiere, Latin American groups protested against ABC, claiming that the series was anti-immigrant.[citation needed] The show featured officers within Homeland Security, many of whom were Latino, who fought various crimes such as drug trafficking.[citation needed] A few months after the premiere ABC aired episodes on weekend afternoons.
