How would our founding fathers view Homeland Security?

Like any patriot, they would have been proud to defend their country. However, they would not have wanted to give up their personal freedoms in the process.

The colonists didn't like having their rights violated. "No taxation without representation" was one of the long-established "Rights of an Englishman." Being British colonists, we figured we had those rights also. England essentially said, "No you don't - you're just colonists."

Having a British soldier living in your house, keeping an eye on you, was another violation of the "rights of an Englishman." This was particularly hated by the colonists.

These violations led to the Revolutionary War. And, they shaped our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Which gets back to your question...

The Founders wanted to create a government that would protect our individual rights, not violate them.

As it says in the Declaration, "...all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Persuit of Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men..."

So, protecting our country must be done in a way that does not sacrifice our rights.

One issue that comes up in homeland security is government wiretapping or electronically monitoring what websites you visit on your computer. This is the kind of thing that would have made the hair on back of the Founders' necks stand up.

The Bill of Rights prevents the government from keeping soldiers in our homes to monitor us. Is doing it electronically any different?

The colonists greatly admired William Pitt, a British prime minister (Pittsburgh is named after him). He once said, "The poorest man may in his cottage, bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. ... The wind may blow through it; the storm may enter; the rain may enter; but the King of England may not enter."

Can you contribute money to the department of homeland security?

In short, no. The Department of Homeland Security is a branch of government not a charity, and therefore it cannot accept monetary contributions. The DHS works on money allocated to it by the government which comes from you (in the form of taxes) when all is said and done. So, as funny as it sounds, if you want to donate money to the DHS, just keep paying your taxes! :) Of course, you'd also be supporting all the other government branches, programs, etc. Joking aside, the DHS cannot accept monetary donations from anyone; for the DHS especially, it could look very bad, as if someone was paying them off to perhaps "overlook" that shipping container that came in last night that, if inspected, would show to reveal illegal weapons and bombs to be used by terrorists....you get the drift.

No. At least I certainly hope not. Federal agencies can be sued depending upon the circumstances involved. Homeland Security is a combination of federal law enforcement and investigation agencies, that being so, a specific agency would have to be named. Example: An error committed by mistaken identity that resulted in the detention and/or arrest and/or search and seizure of a person or his or her residence, vehicle, etc. or damage incurred due to such action.

The Park Police don't have green cars. They have white cars with a blue strip. As far as Border Patrol. They do have a green strip but it is just what was picked by that agency as the color. Just like the color on any other department. The color doesn't have to have a meaning.

How do you get someone deported if you know they are illegal and working in the US but the Dept of Homeland Security will not take any action?

It is not a individual's decision as to whether or not a foreign national should be deported or taken into custody by authorities. The criteria for reportage is if their is substantiated evidence that a foreign national (legal or illegal) has made committed or been involved in the committing of a crime. That type of information should be given to the local law enforcement agency and they will make the determination of any further action should be undertaken. FYI, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the federal agency that has jurisdiction. Answer . If they are involved in some sort of illegal activities and you tell ICE about it then there is a much better chance they will come for them.
