Sen. Cramer Wants Corps of Engineers Fired From Border Wall Project
Who we choose to build the wall defines whether it actually gets built.
The Army Corp of Engineers has been an abstract failure and should not be trusted to secure the southern border.

WASHINGTON – North Dakota Senator Kevin Cramer says the Army Corps of Engineers should be fired from building a wall on the Mexico border.
The Republican says the Corps has been, quote, “an abstract failure” and “should not be trusted.”
In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Cramer cites a California wall project.
It was built by a company contracted by the Corps he says has been flagged for fraud.
Cramer says the one–and–a–half year procurement process to build a four mile border fence in El Paso, Texas will take three times as long as building it.
Cramer suggests private contractors should build the wall instead.
