Sen. Cramer Wants Corps of Engineers Fired From Border Wall Project

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.
