Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said the U.S. may use aspects of the Israeli-Egyptian border wall in its wall with Mexico.

That’s according to a report from Israeli radio, which claimed Nielsen pointed to Israel’s long-time experience securing its borders to stem the flow of ISIS militants into the country.

The DHS secretary reportedly made the remarks earlier this week after touring the Israeli-Egyptian border .

The DHS said Secretary Nielsen also discussed border infrastructure and technology with Israeli security officials.
