An El Paso city councilman is pushing the idea of prohibiting the city from awarding any kind of contract to a vendor or company working on the proposed wall. The issue will come up Tuesday during a regular meeting of the council.
Representative Peter Svarzbein said the idea is to foster a larger conversation about the wall. The Trump administration has already selected El Paso, which is close enough to the border that the Mexican city of Juarez can be seen, as one of the starting points for construction.
