PHOENIX (AP) — A North Dakota construction company has received the largest contract to date to build a section of President Trump's signature wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Republican U.S. Sen. Kevin Cramer of N.D. confirmed the $1.3 billion contract for building the 42-mi.

Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), began constructing approximately 13 mi. of the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Levee Wall System Project in early April on federal land within the McAllen Station area of responsibility in Hidalgo County, Texas.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon sent a 20-page list of military construction projects to Congress on March 18, that might be slashed to pay for President Donald Trump's wall along the Mexican border.

The CEO of Fisher Industries, an Arizona-based construction company, has said that his crew could build a part of the border wall by the November 2020 election. Tommy Fisher said that by using his patented hanging system, Fisher Industries could erect 234 miles of the border wall for just $1.4 billion—a much lower price than President Trump's $8 billion price tag, KTAR News reported.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, has awarded a contract to construct up to 32 miles of Primary Pedestrian Replacement Wall in Arizona, within the U.S. Border Patrol's Yuma and Tucson sectors.
