Rep. Svarzbein is trying to make a point about the wall. He wants the city to not give contracts to contractors who build the wall. It's not legal and it will likely be pulled by the city attorney, but he'll make his point.
We should be aware that the wall in El Paso County is built.... the only contracts out there are for repair.
Most local contractors can't even qualify to bond the major parts of the wall. The only role they would have is as a subcontractor and the city would have a hard time tracking that information down in order to punish them.
Those contractors in town who are working on wall repairs are doing so under the original direction of the Obama administration. Yes, all border wall work going on now was bid and awarded during Obama's administration.
Remember the Arizona ban years back? The city and county broke their own rules within a week of passing it. This is no big deal.
