From the Executive Summary: "Though the global security environment has evolved considerably since the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) founding, its fundamental mission has endured: To safeguard the Homeland, its values, and the American way of life. The changing geopolitical landscape, led by the return of great power competition, is nowhere more evident than in the People's Republic of China's (PRC) ascension to the world-stage. [...] As denoted in the 2017 National Security Strategy of the United States (NSS) and 2020 United States Strategic Approach to the PRC (Strategic Approach), DHS and the broader United States Government (USG) have entered into a period of sustained competition against the PRC, requiring continued attention, adaptation, and resourcing to safeguard the American people and Homeland. The American people rely on DHS to play an integral role in the USG's competition with the PRC. The more than 240,000 men and women of the Department stand ready to curb malign PRC activity and the myriad of other challenges. This study, which seeks to more strategically identify, assess, and leverage the Department's unique resources and authorities, reflects these efforts. The DHS China Strategic Action Plan (SAP) is informed by and nests within the NSS and the Strategic Approach, which delineate the United States' strategic approach to PRC through the pursuit of four goals: (1) protecting the American people, the Homeland, and the American way of life; (2) promoting American prosperity; (3) preserving peace through strength; and (4) advancing American interests."
