Border Wall Builder Accepts Invitation To State Of The Union

Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., will bring the owner of a construction company that built one of the border wall prototypes to President Trump’s State of the Union address next Tuesday.

Tommy Fisher, president of North Dakota-based Fisher Industries, will travel to Washington on Jan. 30 to join the state’s at-large representative in Congress, Cramer’s office told the Washington Examiner Wednesday morning.

“I am honored Tommy accepted my invitation to attend the State of the Union,” Cramer said in a statement. “As Congress develops comprehensive immigrant enforcement legislation, I am proud to know a North Dakota company is a finalist to construct the border wall between our nation and Mexico. Fisher’s reputation for quality construction will be an asset for the nation’s security and a great deal for the American taxpayer.”

Lawmakers are each allowed to bring one guest to sit in the House gallery box for the speech. The invitation is meant to honor distinguished constituents from their district or state.
