BORDER/CABINET/DHS/TRUMP PEOPLE/JOHN KELLY/WALL: “Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly acknowledged Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the southern border of the United States will not extend ‘from sea to shining sea’ and could partially be fencing.
Kelly had few details about the size and scope of the wall when he testified in front of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental POLICY Committee, saying the administration would rely on the input of those working on the border for the specifics.
‘There is no way I can give the committee an estimate of how much it will cost,’ Kelly said. ‘I don’t know what it will be made of, I don’t know how high it will be, I don’t know if it’s going to have solar panels on its side and what the one side is going to look like and how’s it’s going to be painted.’
‘It’s unlikely that we will build a wall or physical barrier from sea to shining sea. But it is very likely, I’m committed, to putting it where the men and women say we should put it,’ he added.”
