DHS Secretary's Goal Is to Finish Wall in Two Years
"The wall will be built where it's needed first, and then it will be filled in. That's the way I look at it," Kelly told Fox News in an interview. "I really hope to have it done within the next two years."
Construction of the wall will begin in a matter of months, he said, but the department will first need to square away funding.
“We're looking at the money aspect,” he said, explaining that the White House is working with Congress on the timetable.
“I think the funding will come relatively quickly and like I said, we will build it where it's needed first as identified by the men and women who work the border," Kelly continued.
The secretary also discussed the importance of DHS personnel in securing the border.
