DICKINSON, N.D. - The Pentagon told Congress Monday that it had approved $1 billion for construction of the border wall at the U.S./Mexico border.
In response to this news, Sen. Kevin Cramer tweeted: “If you tasked a private North Dakota contractor to build a wall, he would start tomorrow.”
Fisher Industries in Dickinson may be that company. On January 31st, it submitted a $4.31 billion proposal to the Department of Homeland Security. It includes 234 miles of a weathering steel fence, paved roads, border technology and a warranty.
It touts an unmatched construction duration - with a guarantee of building 1 mile of fence system per day - and savings of more than one billion dollars.
DHS has not yet made any decisions.
