DHS Secretary John Kelly Tours Texas Border with Gov. Greg Abbott

Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, told Fox News in an exclusive interview Wednesday that he has an aggressive, two-year agenda for completing a wall along the US border with Mexico.

"The wall will be built where it's needed first, and then it will be filled in.I really hope to have it done within the next two years."
"That's the way I look at it", Kelly said.

"Mr Trump is not loved by everyone in America and I think this very rapid succession of decisions, I don't think the American public is really all that used to people making decisions", he said.

Facebook Q4 Revenue Soars 51%, Thanks To Mobile Ads
Daily active users hit 1.23 billion, up from 1.18 billion last quarter and up 18% YoY, compared to 17% last quarter. Advertising revenue rose 53% year-over-year to $8.63 billion, surpassing analysts' expectations for $8.31 billion.

There will be a multi-layered approach to building the wall - with a physical wall and part of the wall "you can see through because it will rely on sensors and technology", Kelly said on Thursday.

"I suspect I have a pretty good idea, but there's nothing like talking to the men and women that get dirty every day doing the nation's work", Kelly added.

The president issued an order last month calling for the executive branch to "secure the southern border of the United States through the immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border, monitored and supported by adequate personnel so as to prevent illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking, and acts of terrorism".

White House Defends Putting Bannon on National Security Council
Trump also announced that his Chief Strategist Steve Bannon would be a part of that restructuring. In the previous two administrations, both were included as regular attendees .

Asked about how the US will pay for the construction of the wall, the Homeland Security secretary said the department was "looking at the money aspect" but that the White House was working with Congress for options.

It may seem like he just took office, but one of President Donald Trump's most controversial campaign promises could come to fruition before the end of 2019.

Kelly acknowledged that the speed of its implementation had probably come as a shock to Americans, but defended his employees as having done "a great job out on the front lines, in this case mostly at the airports". In addition to Ryan's import tax, those options could include an increase in visa and border-crossing card fees, or a lump-sum payment from Mexico of billions of dollars, according to Fox News.
