Kelly dismisses need for wall along full US-Mexico border

Former White House chief of staff John Kelly re-entered the spotlight on Wednesday when he broke with President Donald Trump on immigration issues and the need for a security wall to address the border crisis.

"By no means is he a stupid man", Kelly said about Trump, according to the Duke Chronicle. The retired four-star general left his chief of staff position in late December.

"We don't need a wall from sea to shining sea", he said, adding that most Customs and Border Patrol agents would agree that a wall running the entire length of the Southern border would be "an terrible waste of money". "But we'll do something across the southwest border".

Kelly also revealed that he does not see eye to eye with the tycoon on his beloved border wall plans, something he shut down our nation's government for 37 days in a futile effort to secure the $5 billion taxpayer dollars to fund it.

"There's no way, in my view as a (Department of Homeland Security) secretary - and I said this in all of my hearings - we don't need a wall from sea to shining sea, as I said", Kelly said Wednesday night during a rare public appearance since his departure from the administration in January. "I don't blame them for that".

But Kelly had been a staunch defender of the policy at the time, and even told NPR that the policy would serve as a "tough deterrent" for migrants, and that "the children will be taken care of - put into foster care or whatever".

Kelly left the White House amid Trump's now-infamous government shutdown, which lasted 35 days to become the longest in USA history. "They don't have skills". He did say, however, that for eighteen months he "helped the administration, the president of the United States make the very best decisions that he could based on the information that we could provided him". Kelly said the policy "came as a surprise" to him and to other officials, and he reportedly blamed then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the haphazard rollout.

Kelly's comments echoed statements he made in a previous interview with the Los Angeles Times upon his resignation from the Trump administration. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump tweeted that former President Barack Obama had just endorsed Clinton because "he wants four more years of Obama".
