A Dickinson, North Dakota-based company has been awarded a 400-million dollar contract for construction of the border wall. According to the Army Corps of Engineers, the work will be performed in Yuma, Arizona, and provides design-build border infrastructure along the southern border perimeter of the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, a release said.

“Fisher Industries will receive this nearly $400 million project, which will go toward designing and building physical barriers along about 31 miles of the southern border in Yuma, Arizona,” said Senator Kevin Cramer. “I am glad to see more progress being made to secure the southern border, and I am grateful to see a good North Dakota company like Fisher Industries getting some of the work. I know they will do very well, performing high quality work at a good bargain, all for the security of the people of the United States.”

Senator John Hoeven also praised the announcement.

“Fisher Industries has the right experience to build the wall on the southern border and we’re pleased that the Army Corps of Engineers has selected them to design and build this portion along the southern border in Yuma, Arizona. We need to secure the border and enforce the law, and this work by Fisher will help us to efficiently and effectively build border infrastructure, which along with personnel and technology, is an important part of our national security," Hoeven said.
