According to Kelly's original testimony provided to Fox News, there has been a sharp decline in apprehensions along the southwest border since the beginning of the year, with March marking the fifth straight month of decline, apprehending 17,000 individuals attempting to enter the USA illegally.
"It's unlikely that we will build wall or a physical barrier from sea to shining sea", Kelly testified.
