Trump border wall an advantage to Mexico?

Fox News contributors Steve Cortes, President of Trump’s plans to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, and the efforts to reform the immigration policy.

As President Trump pushes with its promise of U.S.-Mexico border wall, companies competing for the chance to win the multi-billion-dollar project will move before mounting a boycott of local Democratic legislators, on the blacklist, the limit set builders.

Coordinated efforts have been started in California, Arizona, Illinois, New York and Rhode Island, the ban would cities and municipalities to do any official transactions with the company as part of a larger strategy of resistance to delay the construction of the controversial wall.

Most recently, the Berkeley City Council in California passed a regulation that would prohibit it from Contracting with companies that were involved in the construction.

The proposal, drafted by mayor Jesse Arreguin and Councilmembers Ben Bartless, Sophie Hahn and Cheryl Davila, argues that the wall damage, the Californian would stand.

Arreguin called the border wall is broken a “most impractical answer to America’s immigration system, and a symbol of hatred, to demonize the people of Mexican and Latin-American descent.”

This is a March for action by the Council approved, would be the vet to avoid contracts, the business of border wall-related companies. Earlier this month, the Council, the Directive will be broadened to prohibit investments with companies in the “design, construction, or financing” of the wall. The latest regulation formalizes these rules.

“This is the worst kind of populism.’

“Our separation policy is a message that we do not want to do business with companies that try to profit from the separation of families, damage the environment, and increased tensions with long-standing partners, such as Mexico,” Arreguin told Fox News.

Berkeley ‘ s new mandate comes on the heels of a similar economic boycott, passed in Oakland in the last month.

In this case, the Oakland City Council to exclude the city from entering into new or amended contracts with companies, with the Federal government for the construction of the border wall.

Construction, engineering, planning, and information technology companies are subject to the ban. So sub-contractors and financial institutions.

Councilmember Abel Guillen said it was important, “our dollars where our values are.”

Companies involved in a planned U.S.-Mexico border wall boycotts are confronted in several cities.


December Committee-proposal in Los Angeles-still under consideration-requires all want to do business with the city, open the bids that you have made. However, it does not prohibit the city from entering into contracts with frontier builders.

So it is that some of the cities to boycott these parties have the kind of “sanctuary” policy, the fight, the trump administration’s aggressive.

“It’s just amazing to me why any city would not want to criminals who are also illegally in the country,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said earlier this month.

The Associated General Contractors of America, told Fox News that it has gone to the White house and meetings, which require that you print and sue the Federal States and municipalities, trying to deny that sub-contractors work, on their participation in the construction of the border wall.

“This is the worst kind of populism,” Brian Turmail, spokesman for the AGCA, said. “In view of the fact that this government has been intensively sanctuary followed cities, this seems like a simple slam dunk.”

He also throws in an ambitious state and local legislators to try to score political points off of contractors, and says it sets a dangerous precedent.

“Today, it is not like the border of the wall, while you could in the morning said you have to work a anti-war mayor, refuses, to, with arms companies,” Turmail.

In the middle of the sanctuary of the city, the debate in California, the go to is, after the border wall organization at the state level.

Earlier this year, three Democratic state senators introduced a bill, the California pension Fund would require divest from companies in the construction of the wall. It would also require to liquidate the California Public Employee Retirement System and the California State Teachers Retirement System, investments in companies that aid in the construction.

“This is a wall of shame, and we don’t want any part of it,” said Assemblyman Phil Ting in a written statement. “Californians building bridges, not walls.”

Nearly 100 of the approximately 600 company wants to offer, on the cross-border project, based in California.

On the East coast, Rhode Island state Rep. Aaron Regunberg legislation introduced in may that the state, the levy of funds from companies involved in the trump border wall.

“We say it should be not to create this symbol of xenophobia and hatred with Rhode Island state dollars,” Regunberg said.

During a session of the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday, Trump said he could soon protection to San Diego, where six construction companies eight edge-wall prototypes for US to have built-in customs and border.

“I can look at it very briefly, you said in your final form,” Trump, members of his Cabinet.

It remains unclear when the wall could actually go. Trump sat on the building and an ambitious schedule for the construction. But apart from the possible financial and political complications, it is court challenges by geologists.

Critics also say the barrier would be ineffective and expensive. On the election campaign, Trump said Mexico would pay the bill. This is not happening. He also said that the cost to build the wall would be $4 billion. The estimates ranged wildly, but there’s 70 billion, rose as high as$, although the actual cost is clear.
