why dont we make some or all of the illegal immigrants legal? then we can tax their income, improve their quality of life and help everyone out. this will bring lots of new revenue by allowing us to tax their income and to protect the people that live here.

The dispersed oil that remaines underwater in the gulf can be removed with olyophobic bubbles injected deep underwater to cling to the oil and floate the oil to the surface where it can be easily vacuumed into containers for recylcling into usable fuel. The vacuuming breakes the bubbles so only the oil is recovered. Other modifications to the solution can enhance the natural degradation of thr remaining oil and enhance... more »
Participation through non-Governmental agencies in all ramifications is one big factor driving this great Country. It is my considered opinion that greater participation and cooperation of private agencies with Government coordination will further enhanced strategic counter terrorism in our society.
I am an American citizen. I am desperate to bring my wife home to me. The bureaucratic struggle that we are facing is trying to say the least. Our story begins way back in early December 2008. After spending days filling out paperwork we began waiting. Of course the daily phone calls regarding our case brought no reply. I was actually told by a USCIS representative to wait for SIX MONTHS! After much pointless negotiation... more »
Rather than post each of my "OpenGov" Ideas at 27 different websites, I have posted them at the GSA's website (since they are in the forefront of the OpenGov initiative). So, by this notice, the members of the OpenGov Team for this agency have been informed of those ideas. (At least, now, you can't say you were unaware of them.) http://opengsa.ideascale.com/a/pmd/29640-6960 ALSO -- Those OpenGov Team members,... more »
One way to get top college students into FEMA's practicum, is to design various schools which incorporate the media--such as HGTV,top chefs,physcial trainers, builders of all trades, (iron workers,woodworkers, solar panel installers)the list goes on. The goal would be to offer ways to train able bodies disaster victims, who have no skills to readily move to another location and survive financially. Between all the... more »
Given the static nature of some data, how will DHS plan to allow other agencies to leverage the published data? Seems like other agencies data would merge nicely with DHS data … but this is hard to do today.
Have you considered the resources available through the US Postal Service? As they downsize from 800,000+ employees, their systems may be available for processing payroll and other data. USPS has a huge database, from which DHS is probably already retrieving information, but it could also be a resource for processing DHS employees. The USPS owns its own phone line, it has airport hubs that are going mostly unused because... more »
Ms. Napolitano, we have you on record several times saying immigrants would no longer be incarcerated just for coming here, yet you are working with Corplan Corrections for a new facility in Benson, AZ, and you are still allowing the infamous Tent City in Raymondville and the other prison at Port Isabel, both in Texas. Why? Please explain how this can possibly be change we can all believe in?
About this time last year the Army and The National Guard Bureau (Joint), brought forth a test that was intended to exercise the interaction between civil authorities between the local, national and defense department levels. This was a one-year program funded by the office of the Secretary of Defense. Incredibly, during the one-year test, the National Guard Bureau was not included in the execution of the program even... more »
The DHS currently has an abstract purpose that tries to include anything that has to do with security. simplify and let the separate sub-bodies compose their own, specific, mission statements. It should be clear enough that when the basic lay-man reads it, it is understandable.
I believe that the SPP PROGRAM SHOULD BE STOPPED ALTOGETHER. The DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION work in UNISON to FIGHT AGAINST TERRORISM..and to PROTECT OUR MODE'S OF TRANSPORTATION abroad. With that, I believe that the American people have come to recognize us as ONE TEAM- FIGHTING TOGETHER FOR ONE CAUSE. If this "unison" is broken by some airports becoming privatized and... more »
I work at an airport and am frequently being asked what does the 'threat level color mean'? The various colors used are a good idea but I feel that the signs with the 'colors' posted need to verbalize what danger it represents. "RED-EXTREMELY HIGH THREAT LEVEL "ORANGE-HIGH THREAT LEVEL", ETC. In addition to that, I feel that the governemnt should work harder (and more quickly) in ALERTING THE PUBLIC as to "WHY" the threat... more »
According to to GAO report, SPP costs the federal government 17% more to operate. In Montana we have seven east side airports that are private and the other seven airports are federalized. The SPP department has pushed to make Montana the pilot program for privatization. In Montana we feel that screening for profit is not what our indended mission is about. These outsourced jobs are not guarenteed to these federal... more »
