Stop Immigration at our community

Not once, we have seen what we think are illegal immigrants at our local stores and shopping malls. I think we are not entirely wrong in our assumptions. I never once saw ICE come in the mall and detain what we think are illegal aliens, and I believe it mostly a public image problem. Our government officials simply don't want to cause a "scene" at the local mall. And yet everyday goes by without solving the illegal immigrants... more »

Internet Traffic Blocking From Outside USA

There is only one logical/rationale option of restricting and limiting the serious damage that hacker's cause via access to the USA internet system including government, business, military, and citizens, and that option is completely BLOCK all internet traffic coming into the US. At first glance, you may say What!! Not possible. But wait, it is, and perhaps it will require legislation and the cooperation of every internet... more »

Re: National Geographic: A Hovering Threat | Breakthrough

If a terrorist cell could implement a 'The Jackal'-style sniper rifle on a drone, they could potentially assassinate someone from more than a mile away, while the 'pilot' is already outside of the country.

 

It wouldn't be easy, several technical engineering challenges. But it's plenty feasible.

H2B visas ought not to be expanded this year.

Congress recently approved an expansion of the H2B program from 66,000 to 135,000 visas this year. However, the actual expansion is at the discretion of Homeland Security.

I encourage DHS secretary John F. Kelly not to expand the program. Businesses which complain about a lack of workers usually are paying too low a wage or have bad working conditions, or are deliberately manipulating the hiring process to screen out... more »

Photographs on driving license discrimination

I live in Tn where I as a veteran was refused to let me have my picture taken with my Purple Heart hat on. I have been reading about religious exemptions. Jews can wear headgear, Muslim men can wear head gear ,Muslim women can wear head gear, and every other religious group that I know of. I pledged my oath to God and country. Why doesn't that count for anything. Time for a damn big change, I think.

Pathway to Citizenship

On our southern border if you cross it without authorization you are breaking a law. We should impose a fine on those illegal aliens who are in our country and want to stay. The fine could be based on the time a person has been here. The fine could be based on how much our taxpayer has paid for their survival Ie ( food stamps , medical expense etc ). After thorough vetting, the person will provide a resume with... more »

Stop Email Spam (Or: If anyone was really serious about cybersecurity would they answer their emails?)

I posted this as a comment under Cybersecurity and Homeland Security but it still shows: Comments [0]

I am gravely concerned about the US government apathy towards e-mail spam and perhaps cybercrime in general.

We hear about all the concerns and efforts but I question if the comments meet with reality.

Do sites claiming to be a gateway to the government like this have any effect? The following proves they don't.

Traffic Obstruction

Most road closures occur with road barrier which are placed across the road to prevent traffic from traveling. This may happen, for example, when a bridge is being rebuilt. Often the closure barrier is placed far before one can observe WHY the road is being closed. It has occurred to me that there is currently no way to determine IF these road barriers are actually legit. So a terrorist group COULD set up road barriers... more »

Why didn't you release my idea?

I couldn't help noticing there are at least three ideas listed (approved in hours) after my, still "pending approval" comment was made a week ago. I presume now it will never be approved. We both know, my comment doesn't breach the site rules unless you are calling the verifiable truth an insult to the government.

I also couldn't help but notice the irony, the dramatic irony and the astounding irony as noted below.... more »

ICE Action against Chaldean Christians in Sterling Heights, Michigan

As a veteran who served 24 years in the US Coast Guard, I am disgusted with the way ICE has rounded up a large number of Chaldean Christians in Sterling Heights, MI. When these same people are facing attempts to exterminate all Christians in the Middle East, why are ICE agents in the Detroit area going after folks, many of whom have been productive citizens in America for many years? Our country should be making every... more »

Booming birth tourism Control and immigration policy revision

Nowadays a lot of people come to the US just to give birth so their children can have American citizenship and sponsor their parents. Women that are 4 month pregnant come to US and stay until their due date and when they get all the papers for their children, they go back to their country. Others who are here illegally or overstay their visa, find this a way to get legal status and benefit from the system. In the first... more »

Cost-Effective Border Security with a High-Tech Fence

The President of the United States promised the American people that he will secure our Southern border by building a “wall”. I fully support President Trump and his efforts to secure the border, and agree that a wall (or fence) will reduce illegal border crossings into the United States, when combined with other high-tech systems. A wall (or fence) is necessary, as opposed to just high-tech systems alone, because high-tech... more »
