DHS Secretary John Kelly: Border Wall is ‘Essential’ Despite Looming Government Shutdown
Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Sunday that it was worth fighting for border wall funding even if it risks a government shutdown.
“I certainly think a border wall is essential, as do almost everyone who lives on the border,” Kelly told CBS News’ John Dickerson on Face the Nation. “So yes, I think its certainly worth hard negotiations over. We have tremendous threats, whether its drugs, people, potential terrorists coming up from the south.”
