Mexico border wall should be finished in 2 yrs - Kelly

"That's the way I look at it", Secretary Kelly said.

"I really hope to have it done within the next two years", he reaffirmed.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said in an interview last week that he didn't rule out Mexico helping finance a wall but said the USA would likely "front the money".

'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, ' he added.

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.

Kelly's strategy includes a pushing of more resources to the border for expedited processing of illegal immigrants.

In this area, Border Patrol agents pick up at least 600 people per day, who have crossed into the United States illegally, Fox News said.

President Donald Trump is now facing resistance from his own party on his number one campaign pledge - erection of a border wall along Mexico, CNN reported.

Though Republicans have the majority on the Hill, Thiessen urged Democrats to go along: "This is a pro-trade, pro-entrepreneurship, pro-U.S. manufacturing, pro-corporate tax reform -It's good for business".

President Trump's immigration executive order caused more than 100,000 visas to be revoked, government lawyer Erez Reuveni revealed Friday in a federal courtroom in Alexandria, Virginia.

Even some Republican representatives from Texas, however, have expressed discontent about the border wall.

'Yes, I think so, ' Kelly said. "That's how I'm looking at it".

When Kelly told his wife there was a chance that he would be offered a job in the Trump administration, she told him that she wanted him to take it and that the Kelly family is a "life of service".
