Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said the border wall would begin moving forward by the end of the summer. I guess Speaker Paul Ryan didn’t get the memo.
Ryan has publicly said that the wall wouldn’t begin until next year, but it seems he’s not on the same page as the White House, but then again what’s new. We’ve been hearing so many different things on the wall, many Americans are getting uptight. Let’s see where this takes us by the end of the summer and from there we can start planning, what do you say?

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told Fox News’ “The First 100 Days” Thursday that construction on the much-promised border wall would be able to “move forward by the end of the summer.”
“I think something in the neighborhood of 100 companies from across the nation have shown interest and are starting to put together their prototypes,” Kelly told host Martha MacCallum. “Of course, contracting is a pretty complicated business in the federal government, unfortunately. Too complicated. But I think by late spring, early summer we’ll have some prototypes.“
Kelly appeared with Attorney General Jeff Sessions as the two embarked on a two-day border trip scheduled to make stops in El Paso and San Diego.
“Just in the last 60 to 90 days, the movement of illegal immigrants up from Central America through Mexico has dropped off 70 percent,” Kelly told MacCallum. “We’re at about a 15, 16 year low, and frankly, we haven’t done all that much yet.”
Sessions praised Kelly’s department for its “fabulous work” in helping to apprehend criminal illegal aliens and discussed the administration’s plan to go after the Salvadoran gang MS-13.
I like when the White House comes out with something different than the politicians in Congress. Now I am not naive to tell you I didn’t hear “construction” would begin but moving forward is a lot more positive than just sitting there.
Do you think the wall will begin construction before the end of the year? Share your concerns and thoughts below in the comment section.
