DHS Sec.: Border Wall May Have SOLAR PANELS

Gen. Jack Kelly, the secretary of homeland security, told Congress on Wednesday there’s “no way” he can estimate how much President Trump’s long-promised border wall will cost.

“I mean, I don’t know what it will be made of; I don’t know how high it will be; I don’t know if it’s going to have solar panels on the side, what one side’s going to look like and how it’s going to be painted — I have no idea. So I can’t give you any type of an estimate.

“I will say this, that it’s unlikely that we will build a wall, or a physical barrier, from sea to shining sea, but it is very likely — I’m committed to putting it where the men and women (Border Patrol) say we should put it.”
