Tommy Fisher: My Firm Will Create 'Border Protection System' for US

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

The CEO of one of the companies selected to build a prototype of President Donald Trump's border wall told Newsmax TV on Friday that he considered it more of a "border protection system."

"I know the wall has a lot of political controversy, but I hope both sides would look at it and say, 'Look, this is a protection system,'" Tommy Fisher, president and CEO of Fisher Sand and Gravel Co. in North Dakota, told "Newsmax Now" host Bill Tucker in an interview.

"I've heard both sides of the aisle say: 'We want border protection. We just don't like the term of 'the wall.'"

Fisher said that what makes his company's model different is that "it includes not only the wall but two high-speed roads on each side of the wall.

"In a border protection system, you could build a wall — but if you can't have good access to the wall, someone can still climb over the wall, someone can go under.

"But when you put high-speed roads there, and you've got agents coming on covering five times the amount of ground, it probably makes it worth five times the amount of agents without even hiring anybody new."

Overall, Fisher said that his company's proposal for the actual wall is about $6 billion under the estimated Trump administration cost of about $18 billion.

"We sent a proposal exactly for 700 miles of wall, guaranteed to be built in six years, with a two-year warranty after that for $10.77 billion.

"That would conclude the wall all the way through the mountains — no exceptions — through the whole state of California, Arizona and New Mexico.

"We then offer, basically, a 12-year additional warranty on workmanship for another billion, to take it to $12.21 billion.

"Right now, they've accounted $18 billion," he told Tucker.

"We sort of beat the budget by $6 billion with our patented process."
