It could be a name mix-up with someone on a watch list. Ask for a TSA redress number. Pull credit reports to make sure identity hasn't been hacked. Check SSA record as well. Contact local representative/senator's office and ask for their help.

comment Is a No Objection Certificate really needed when applying for a UK visa?
It might be "certificate of competency" and I think it's a separate question from the one about whether UKVI requires info on whether time off work is granted and paid/unpaid.

comment How much to tip in Mumbai or India general?
@CMaster But there's a difference between, let's say in the US, with tipping the hotel maid $1-2 per day and $20 per day. I might do the latter (or more) for a cleaning up after a sick kid or for a lot of trash. $1000 tip if I were a rock star.

comment Measures to avoid locations with bad air quality and inversion for asthmatics?
@phoog Yes, west, where most air pressure systems come from in the area. If fresh air can't get over the range--an inversion can certainly happen. Otherwise, why would LA be on the list? It only has mountains to the east.

The particular effect you've mentioned is caused an [inversion](en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inversion_(meteorology). I've linked to the Wikipedia article. I thought Denver also had issues (but it's not on the list.
