Fisher Sand and Gravel is currently building roughly three miles of wall on private land outside El Paso, Texas.

U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) said, “Fisher Industries will receive almost $270 million of this nearly $400 million project, which will go toward designing and building physical barriers along about 31 miles of the southern border in Yuma, Ariz. 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.”
