DHS Secretary Says He Is “Shocked” by “Rejoicing” Over Lack of Wall Funding

Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Tuesday that he is “shocked” some officials are “rejoicing” that funding for President Trump’s proposed border wall has been delayed.

“Frankly I am shocked at the behavior of some individuals in public service or public office,” Kelly said at Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing.

Kelly did not mention any names but said they are “rejoicing in the fact that that wall will be slower to be built” instead of “celebrating how they’ve managed to reduce the amount of money” needed to build the wall.

“This is our government’s largest investment in border security in 10 years,” Kelly added. “We need more to keep moving forward.”
