Integrated Airport Lost & Found Network

Lost laptops remain a leading cause of data breaches threatening company data, consumer privacy, and even government information. 12,000 laptops are lost at US airports each week. We have developed a platform that is proven to increase recovery rates of lost valuables by 10X. We are now optimizing that platform to build a nation-wide fully integrated network of airport lost & found services. This will enable users... more »

Immigration

My suggestion: stop separating children from parents at the US/Mexico border. I'm referring to illegal immigrants and asylum seekers, not unaccompanied minors. I suggest that aid organizations, NGOs and diplomatic personnel located in Mexico, Central America and South America inform residents that the United States is enforcing this policy.

Expand EAD automatic 180-days extension to more categories

Since January 17, 2017, USCIS is automatically extending only 15 out of 57 categories of expiring EADs for up to 180 days for those who have applied for renewal.

Considering the current unsustainable situation for EAD holders due to longer processing time, I'd like for you to consider extending this decision to more categories of EAD (for example: H4, L2, F1 visa holders), so more legal immigrants currently working would... more »

Wall of solar panels generating enough hydrogen to eliminate burning of fossil fuels for US energy needs and secure the border.

The two thousand mile wall of solar panels on the Mexican border would generate enough hydrogen to supply the total energy requirements of the USA. The solar panel array could be constructed to form a wall on the border that would ensure total border security.Hydrogen burning fuel cells could power every vehicle and power plant that currently burns fossil fuels, therefore making our total energy consumption solar powered.... more »

Perfect Border Surveillance Aircraft

In 1967 the Federal Government purchased hundreds of twin engine bulletproof observation aircraft from Cessna and used them for years in Vietnam. These high wing aircraft used two in-line engines (front and back) providing unparalleled visibility and could operate at both low and high speeds allowing them to quickly transition to an area and loiter over the target for hours. If the government still has any of these... more »

Walls are outdated. Use drones.

The gentleman from Vermont might not have been entirely out of line today when he explained walls are "last century's technology". So use drones across the ~1800 miles of needed border. Specifically, an array of response drones could be enormously beneficial to CBP, ICE, and DHS in general. Drones can be programmed to automatically recharge on environmentally sound seismic pylons (detection of underground digging) that... more »

Implement premium processing for form I-765 (EAD)

Countless of legal immigrant are facing longer processing time for renewing their form I-765 (EAD) taking more than 6-months. As a majority of EAD renewals do not fall in the automatic 180-days renewal categories, and newly requested EAD receipt notices do not grant work authorization the only option for applicants is to try an expedite request.

The recent health crisis has put a stress on USCIS finances and processing... more »

Allow immigrants to work with USCIS I-765 receipt notice

Due to the current health crisis, USCIS processing times are taking longer than it did. EAD documents were usually delivered in up to 90 days but they currently take up to 12+ months to be processed.

Allowing employers to validate I-9 with an USCIS I-765 renewal or new receipt notice would allow immigrants to jump start on working while waiting for their EAD to be processed. This would certainly reduce the number of... more »

Funding Border Security/Wall - Collaboration

Instead of fighting with Mexico over funding the border security (including the wall), why not work together to solve one of the biggest root causes of illegal immigration (drug cartels and poor/dangerous living condition in Central America). The USA and Mexico could form a joint police/military alliance to go after the drug cartels. The two countries can split all proceeds from confiscated assets 50/50. Mexico could... more »

2. When a person with children requests asylum at an embassy, take a DNA swab... more »

ALTERNATIVE DIRECTION FOR CENTRAL AMERICAN REFUGEES

Instead of taking in refugees heading NORTH from Central American to US, have US govt PAY farther SOUTH Central American or even SOUTH AMERICAN countries to take them in --- with $ from US for initial expense covered too. Except for Brazil, those countries speak SPANISH ALREADY, making it SO MUCH EASIER for both refugees and the countries taking them in!!!
