Vetting FEDEX Ground and FEDEX Home Delivery Drivers since they are NOT company employees

The concern about terrorists using trucks to inflict harm on the public raises serious questions about who has access to trucks, particularly large ones that are taken for granted when seen every day on our streets. FEDEX Ground and FEDEX Home Delivery drivers are NOT required to have a CDL(unless they drive a tractor trailer) and may not be undergoing a rigorous background check because they are NOT employed by FEDEX... more »

Face shields comprised solely of air curtains and Far UVC light to reduce the airborne transmission of Covid-19

This idea concerns Covid-19. Since the Covid-19 campaign no longer exists here, I have no recourse but to post this idea, and many others, in the five current campaigns which still exist here.

It appears that DHS no longer reviews ideas that are submitted on this site. I hope they will disprove this assumption by communicating with me on each of my ideas and directly address any potential which they may have.

Rollover cages

Rollover cages should be standard on all vehicles. This will save lives and should be given a break on insurance as the vehicle could be saved from totaled status upon rollover by keeping the cab from crushing in and leave it in a useable, drivable state.

Use of 'Fleetlights' to help prevent peaceful protests from turning violent.

After watching time and again how peaceful protests turn violent at night . . . I thought how valuable it would be to light up areas where protesters/vandals are congrugating. I searched for "drone lighting" and found something in the UK named "Fleetlights". It seems that a large mobile fleet of drones outfitted with lights and high definition cameras could follow protesters/vandals . . . provide stadium like lighting... more »

Fire and other hazards

A fire extinguisher system that uses a chemical mist to remove oxygen from the air. This could also work as a foam style product that quickly evaporates into a oxygen reducing vaper. This could extinguish a fire without creating water damage and mold and mildew build up from a sprinkler system. It could be installed as several independent units that work off of a remote, or smoke detection, or heat detection, or a... more »

REVENUE GENERATING BORDER WALL

Tired of hearing how much the wall will cost? ME TOO!!! Turn this gripe completely around by making the wall pay for itself and then; continue to generate revenues and create jobs, in perpetuity. Build the barrier and include in its construction; a line of Solar Panels and Wind Turbines along as much of the lenght of the wall, as possible. This will create an ongoing REVENUE STREAM in the generation of electricity. It... more »

Immigration - Tag and Track Passports of Tourists

(IF) we desire to address the fraction of the immigration condition, whereby, tourists come to the U.S. and never leave, then why don't we just Tag and track the Passports of Tourists. A single page in the passport could be hole-punched, and a USPS mini package tracking device could be hooked through the hole.

We create the policy that they must keep the Passport on them at all times. We will then know where tourists... more »

Best and Brightest vs Low Talent vs Fair Math Immigration

PURPOSE:
This topic briefly discusses select facets of illegal immigration.

BASELINE:
I’m of the opinion that immigration is a complex subject. The facts are that (as of 2016), there is an estimated 11.3 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S., and 30 percent of federal prison inmates are illegal immigrants, costing us a fortune. Also, 59% of them live in California, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey and... more »
