  • DHS Chief Kelly: 'We're Not Hiding Behind a Wall'

Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly shot back at former President Obama's comments deriding the construction of a border wall Friday.

Kelly was interviewed on Fox and Friends on Friday and said the terror threat is "worse than we realize", pointing out there had been four major terror attacks in the last week, by "more or less the same groups", in Manchester, England, in Egypt (where 28 Coptic Christians were murdered), on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, and in Indonesia.

While government vigilance against terror threats is certainly warranted, Kelly's "never leave the house" language is a little extreme.

"The reality is they're attempting everything all the time", Kelly told host Charlie Rose. It's nonstop. The good news for us in America is we have incredible people protecting us every day.

Bowie State University Student Fatally Stabbed by Member of 'Alt-Reich Nation'
Urbanski , 22, was arrested and charged with assault and first- and second-degree murder for the death of 23-year-old Richard W. The FBI is investigating this killing as a hate crime because Urbanski was a member of the "Alt-Reich Nation" Facebook group.


The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria claimed responsibility for a Monday bombing after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, that killed 22 and injured more than 100. But it can happen nearly here anytime. The assault also left 25 people wounded.

"We're not hiding behind a wall".

"The good news is we have the finest men and women in and out of uniform", he said.

"It's not going to impede in any way the legal crossing of millions of people a week - Mexicans and all other nationalities, Americans going south and north", Kelly said. Why say it? I suppose it could just be an unguarded moment, but I think it was on goal: to let us know that he is anxious about it, because it's his job. "You can't defend anything by hiding behind something".
