Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf joined the Brian Kilmeade Show today to discuss several issues including border security, sanctuary cities refusing to work with ICE, and human trafficking. On the issue of border security, Wolf addressed the caravan of hundreds heading to the U.S. border from Honduras. Wolf assured Brian Kilmeade that the caravan is being closely monitored and is not even remotely similar to the massive migrant caravan that headed to the border in 2018, and that even if the caravan reaches the U.S. border they will run into a number of programs that will not allow them into the country without a legal reason for being there.
Wolf also discussed the wall currently being built along the U.S.-Mexico border, which he confirmed has spread across 100 miles already, and should span between 400-450 miles by the end of 2020.
On the issue of sanctuary cities, Wolf addressed a tweet he sent out last night regarding the alleged sexual assault and murder of a 92-year-old woman in Queens last week. The man accused of the violent attack is a Guyanese national who is in the country illegally, and Wolf has called the murder a "completely preventable tragedy," and also called out sanctuary city laws as being dangerous for both ICE officers and citizens.
Lastly, Wolf discussed the uptick in human trafficking during Super Bowl season, as there tends to be an increase in the communities where the Super Bowl is held - this year's being in Miami. Wolf shared with Brian Kilmeade that the department has launched its first ever human trafficking strategy to bring the issue of human trafficking and child exploitation to the forefront.
