    Ill. Legislator Wants to Sanction Firms That Help Trump Build Border Wall

    By Barbara Hollingsworth | November 17, 2016 | 1:19 PM EST

    ( -- A bill introduced Wednesday in the Illinois General Assembly would punish any businesses that help the federal government build a wall along the U.S. southern border by placing them on a “Prohibited Investment List” alongside companies that boycott Israel and do business with Sudan and Iran.

    Building the wall between the U.S. and Mexico was a major promise President-elect Donald Trump made to voters during his successful presidential campaign. It is also the first goal of Trump’s “10 Point Plan to Put America First.”

    Trump said he will “begin working on an impenetrable physical wall on the southern border, on day one. Mexico will pay for the wall.”

    The proposed legislation submitted by Rep. Will Guzzardi (D-Chicago) would amend the Illinois Procurement Code to prohibit any state agency from “entering into a contract subject to the Code with a business that contracts with the federal government to build a wall along the border of Mexico and the United States of America.”

    The bill would also require the Illinois Investment Policy Board (IIPB) to “make its best efforts to identify all companies that contract to build a border wall and include those companies in the list of restricted companies distributed to each retirement system and the Illinois State Board of Investment” immediately after Trump’s inauguration next January.

    According to IIPB’s website, “Illinois law current (sic) prohibits investment in certain companies that do business with Iran and Sudan as well as companies that boycott Israel.”

    On Tuesday, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that he would defy any orders from the future Trump administration to deport illegal aliens, vowing that “Chicago will always be a sanctuary city.”

    Trump’s “10 Point Plan” also includes a pledge to “end sanctuary cities.”

    Our troops built the Alaska Highway in less than 10 months due to fear of Japanese invasion. Let our TROOPS build the wall...we already pay their paychecks. Get the Seabees down there!

    And get the tanks rolling on patrol. Make some cow patties!

    These are the suggestions of desperate politicians owned by the drug cartels who are going to fail under Trump. These outrageous desperate proposals, statements and actions are the signs of corruption and treason so deep it's going to blow our minds when it all blows up in their faces. These people are owned by the drug cartels. These corrupt politicians don't give a hoot about illegal aliens, they care about 2 things, getting their bribes from the cartels and staying alive. I say let the cartels have them, they're traitors of the most disgusting level.
