COOLIDGE, Ariz. — Senior Trump administration officials visited southern Arizona on Wednesday to watch a demonstration of how parts of President Trump’s border wall might be built.

The Department of Homeland Security’s top planning and project managers were on site at Fisher Industries, after the company said it has a method for building the wall that is cheaper than other proposals.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We’ve come up with a system where we can build one mile per day,” Justin Murphy, general manager for Fisher Industries’ sub-company Stinger Bridge and Iron, told DHS officials in a briefing.

The company says it could have a few hundred miles completed before the 2020 presidential election, when Republicans will be holding Trump’s feet to the fire on his biggest campaign promise: to build a wall.

Trump originally asked for $5.7 billion in December to build 234 miles of wall. Since Trump took office, about 1.5 miles of wall have been completed per month, and most of that is replacement wall, not in new areas. Hundreds of millions of dollars, roughly half of what DHS received each year, was spent on administrative and procurement costs.

Fisher said it can build all 234 miles for $1.4 billion. For another $3 billion, it will pave concrete roads the length of the wall and install lighting and technology on it. Funding from 2017 and 2018 has led to just 40 miles of completed wall, most of which replaced dilapidated structures.
