On Tuesday, Secretary of Homeland Security, retired Gen. John Kelly provided insight into when the construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall would be.
Kelly told the House Homeland Security Committee that the objective of the border wall is to enhance strategic areas where instances of illegal border crossing are at their highest.
With this, Kelly told officials and Customs and Border Protection agents that the building of the wall “will be well underway in two years.”
“We’re not going to be able to build a wall everywhere, all at once,” Kelly told officials in Congress during his first committee hearing as DHS Secretary. “We’re not going to build it all in an afternoon. We’ll build it in the places that the people who work that border say needs it right now. And there are places on that border I’m told need it right now.”

According to The Daily Caller, CBP agents made justifiable suggestions on how to build up the border wall and security.
Suggested improvements included areas of fencing that lacked proper barrier structures, and certain sectors having outdated and ineffective technology from the 1980s. There were also suggestions of enhancing patrol units along the border to better curb illegal immigration.
No specifics were given during the committee hearing in regards to Mexico, potentially, paying for the wall.
