Correct Policies which encourage Fraud & Harm Victims/Witnesses/Informants

DHS must focus on correcting their current policies which encourage Fraud & Harm Victims/Witnesses/Informants. It must be a Strategy of DHS to focus on closing loopholes, which are created by their own inept policies. Such as: Require Evidence to meet Civil Rule of Procedures: Current policies allow for No Standards of Evidence within any immigration proceedings. The Administrative Procedures Act which governs immigration ...more »

Prevent Employment Identity Theft

Imagine you get notified when someone applies for employment using your identity. This is similar to the credit bureaus' fraud alert. This enables you to be proactive before someone racks up a huge IRS bill and will help stop employment related identity theft. If someone gets ahold of your name, social security number, and date of birth, they will pass e-verify and could get a job as if they were you. They will work ...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 »

The Electronic Wall

The Electronic Wall Rather than replicate The Great Wall of China along our southern border by constructing a physical barrier, let’s consider an Electronic Wall that will be cheaper, faster to construct, and more effective than any physical barrier. The technology already exists for creating an electronic wall. This is what its design might look like: The highest level would be a live satellite view of the border area. ...more »

Cybersecurity and Homeland Security

"Secure and Safeguard Cyberspace" has long been an important DHS mission. However, cyberspace has evolved significantly since our last comprehensive strategy review in 2014. Connected devices, from smart phones to refrigerators, have brought the internet into nearly every part of our personal and professional lives. Beyond that, the Nation's critical infrastructure and essential government functions are increasingly ...more »

USA/Mexico Border Wall: Crowd Funding

I suggest a government ran website that will allow American citizens to donate their own money to offset the cost of the USA/Mexico Border Wall. The website does not have to be for just the Border Wall. It should also allow citizens the oppurtunity to donate to a variety of other important government projects. When someone donates to any of the causes listed on the site they can receive a mailed official certificate ...more »

H2A Mailing of I-1797C/I-797B Petitions

The I-797C Petition Receipt Notice and the I-797B Approval Notice are very important documents for the employer to be able to request worker visas. In May 2016, USCIS announced that if the employer included a prepaid label for the I-797C and the I-797B, they would use UPS mailing vs. USPS standard mailing. However, there have been several times since the above announcement, including two recent cases, that the employer ...more »

Airline Safety

Airport security scans, etc can only go so far. I travelled a lot by air in the 1970's as an employee of TWA(now extinct). Took parents to Israel soon after the 6 day conflict when hijacking was in vogue. In what I now consider a truly genius strategy, as part of a reasonable security check, all passengers were told all El- Al flights had a unidentified air Marshall passenger with full authority to use deadly force ...more »

Voluntary pre-interview drug screening

Hey all, In light of recent events I think a good change would be for us to have TSOs take pre-employment drug screenings before even interviewing. I think it is ridiculous that we cannot find sober and qualified individuals to protect our nation in some of our most vulnerable areas. I have been passed over multiple times here in Florida despite the fact that I can pass a drug test 365 days a year with no notice whatsoever. ...more »

School Active Threat

School Lock-Down: Shelter in place or Run-Hide-Fight? When a school goes into Lock-Down, some people consider the shelter in place procedures (as the name implies) while others decide the Run-Hide-Fight options based protocol is more appropriate. Since there are several definitions of the term Lock-Down, confusion may be reduced by standardizing the response terms and procedures. There are three responses which address ...more »
