Two major projects to build President Donald Trump's border wall using nearly $1 billion in Pentagon funds run the risk of being delayed due to a construction firm protesting the contracts won by two rivals.

Fisher Sand & Gravel has issued a formal protest with the Government Accountability Office, protesting the award of two contracts to SLSCO Ltd. and Barnard Construction Co., awards that the Pentagon announced earlier this month.

One of the projects is for a $789 million border wall in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, which is in the El Paso sector of the border. The smaller project will be in Yuma, Arizona.

In a letter to the GAO, Fisher Sand & Gravel describes the solicitation as "unique (and highly flawed)."
