Senator Cramer meets with Assistant Secretary of the Army Alex Beehler, who oversees the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) met with Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy, and Environment Alex Beehler, who oversees the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), about their current efforts to build physical barriers along the southern border.

“The crisis at the southern border demands swift and immediate action. If President Trump wants the wall built on time and under budget like the American people deserve, the Army Corps needs to drastically improve,” said Senator Cramer. “Even with millions already appropriated to them, the Army Corps has repeatedly failed to build physical barriers in a quick and efficient manner. I urged Assistant Secretary Beehler to reform their overly-bureaucratic process to ensure the wall gets built."
