Neilson must resign.

We need to welcome people to our country. We need to build bridges, not walls. Neilson should resign. She could get a new job in a re-recreation of Nazi concentration camps. The US policy towards immigrants at our southern border is BARBARIC and CRUEL. People are trying to come here to escape getting killed/raped/shot in their own countries. We need to help people, not hurt them. We need to be country that is a... more »

Keep Families Together

Children are vulnerable and should not be separated from their parents. The family is a foundational element of Catholic teaching and family unity is a cornerstone of our American immigration system.

Separating parents from their children will not deter families from seeking safety and security in the U.S. Such a policy will not cure the pervasive root causes of migration existing in the violent areas of Central America.... more »

Families seeking asylum

DHS must stop separating parents from children at the border. Families come seeking asylum. They deserve to enter the USA and be treated with care and dignity in accordance with American values. Many of us are ashamed by policies of the current administration.

Blankets for children

Simple idea. We've made & donated fleece blankets to children in foster care system. There are currently 2000-2300 children housed without parents at our southern borders. Problem is likely to get worse before getting better. So say, 5000 kids. Most fleece fabric needs no preparation beyond measuring & cutting to size. 100s of images on them; solid colors to animal prints to cartoon animals to superheroes. I would volunteer... more »

Mexico to pay for Wall

I saw DHS Secretary Nielsen being drilled by Sen Leahy on Dems fav topic on Mexico to pay. May I help with a relatively simple response. We lost estimated $40B a year to Mexico on drug traffic. A wall can easily cut down the traffic by 25%, likely more. That's savings of at least $10B. In 2 yrs the Wall will be paid for, yes, by Mexico money, and 5 times over in 10 years.
I sympathize with Trump's staff to have to defend... more »

Win public support

I think legitimate efforts to boost border security are getting hurt by out-of-control immigration practices elsewhere. ICE and DHS are getting a really bad rep, targeting longtime residents for political purposes, splitting apart innocent families to fill quotas, and not allowing people to apply for amnesty when they reach the borders. Maybe first work to eliminate counterproductive, spiteful, and sometimes unlawful... more »

Hi Tech Border Wall feasible

A high tech border wall is feasible, and can work as follows. First, purchase radar technology developed by Volvo to detect moving moose, elk, and kangaroos on roads day or night and adapt for people size and speed. This technology is already established and implemented in Volvo cars in Europe, US, etc. Then, set up a radar network across some/all common border crossings, using this technology. Second, when the network... more »

Upholding the ORR

The DHS has defended policy that REQUIRES the state to separate children from their parents if they cross anywhere besides a port of entry, meaning these children, innocent save being born, will be passed into the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

The ORR, this week, both acknowledged it "lost track" of 1,475 children and refused to ensure policy changes to prevent this from happening. The staff at ORR maintain—reasonably—that... more »
