Kelley, who previously served in Operation Desert Storm and was deployed twice during the Iraq War as an intelligence analyst, told “Fox & Friends” Friday that the comments were “very dismissive and disrespectful” in his view.


“Look, three-thousand Americans died and many more first responders died [after] responding to this. … I figured you can complain or you can try and do something,” he said.

Kelley who is an advocate for immigration reform, also believes Congress has done a bad job on the humanitarian crisis on the border by not by adequately funding Border Patrol and ICE agents, who he said have been unfairly blamed for the conditions at the border by Omar and others.

“There’s not a cop or anybody in law enforcement who wants to see anybody suffer. We do need secure borders. You don’t have a country without a border, and allowing anybody to walk in is ridiculous,” he told the Duluth News Tribune
