Immigration reform

Having lived in a Texas border community most of my life, 50+ years, I have seen the demographics of migrants change drastically, but immigration laws and procedures change not at all.  No longer are the majority single Mexican males looking for work in order to send money back home.  Now it is families who are traveling from many different countries seeking asylum, many with family contacts already in the US.  If this... more »

Problem at border

One need not look further than the head of the failing department. Mr Mayorkas is either incompetent beyond description or deliberately and maliciously operating an open border regardless of his nonsensical denial of this obvious fact. I suggest he resign, be fired or impeached as quickly as possible.

Wildfire Resistance/Resilience Proposal to Protect Homes and other Structures

Dr. Daniel Kaniewski, Former FEMA Associate Administrator for Resilience, posted an idea on Linkedin for the U.S. government to make DHS/FEMA the lead agency on Climate Adaptation.  This idea could produce great benefits in all aspects of increasing climate resilience in America, including protecting homes and other structures from wildfire damage.  The news media has recently shown Giant sequoia trees in California being... more »

Fire Mayorkas

Alejandro Mayorkas should be fired immediately. He has no control over the Southern border of the US. He lies every time he speaks to the press or congress. He tells people the border is closed, while thousands of migrants cross back and forth over the border. He allows drugs and violent gang members to enter our country which endangers US citizens. He continuously fails to secure the border and has no plan to make improvements.... more »

Secretary Mayorkas

Dear Secretary Mayorkas:

 

Enforce the laws and regulations that have been dictated to you by congress. More importantly stop punishing staff that do enforce the laws and regulations that have been dictated by congress. This shouldn't be difficult to understand, contrary to your ethics, or confusing. If it is any of those three things, you should resign.

Why are we demonizing border patrol

The uproar created by the photograph of the border agent on horseback grabbing the illegal border crosser baffles me! The agent's job is to prevent people illegally entering the US. Of course the he looked angry. There are overwhelming numbers crossing illegally. And "politely" asking an illegal crosser to "please stop, sir" is not going to work. I support immigration but controlled and legal immigration. The Haitians... more »

Supporting Border Officers trending idea

Please get back on your horses and protect our borders.  Left wing "outrage" is ruining this country and though neither party really reflects my political views completely, I feel we need strong protection from illegal immigration at the border.  Thanks for your leadership and for doing what you do.

Standing with r officers

As a former USCG federal law enforcement officer and a founding member of DHS I'm struggling with the fact that horse mounted officers r now riding a desk because they followed there training and protected our southern boarder.  Do not submit to the left wing media.  Stand with your officers.  What they did was well within the level of force guidelines and anybody in law enforcement knows it.

Rio Grande River Dredge

God Bless you all to start with. I don't envy you! Until I saw it with my own eyes, I had no idea how easy it is to simply walk across the river to illegally enter the US. Is there a reason we couldn't dredge a 10-15' deep ditch along our side of the river so you can't just walk across? It's done all the time for beach replenishment I've seen as a New Jersey resident. The dredge would suck sand from the river bottom and... more »

Border Patrol Agents On Horseback

All our border patrol agents on the southern border are overwhelmed. The recent events including those on horseback attempting to turn back even more illegal immigrants is a perfect example of this. The Biden Administration's take on this is to condemn the behavior of these patriotic border agents only trying to fix a problem that the Biden Administration created to begin with.

Send our full military to our southern border NOW trending idea

We have witnessed the failure of the Biden administration to secure our southern border.  Del Rio, TX area Border Patrol are overwhelmed. THEY NEED MORE HELP.  Now the McAllen, TX area is in grave danger of being overrun with Haitians and others numbered in the tens of thousands.  SEND IN OUR FULL MILITARY AND SECURE OUR BORDER.  If Mayorkas cannot or will not do the job, he must resign and get someone in place who will... more »

Drone technology

Good morning DHS,

This letter is an inquiry in to whether or not drones are being considered to patrol the southern border? 

If not, can you please help me understand why, it seems like a great technology we have ready and waiting on tarmacs throughout our great country?

Thank you,
