WASHINGTON - Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told a congressional panel on Tuesday that he expects a wall on the US-Mexico border to be "well under way" within the next two years.

Kelly said the wall would be some kind of "physical barrier," perhaps including a fence in some places.

Republican President Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to build a wall along the US-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration.
