The federal government is now accepting design proposals for the Trump administration’s promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but San Francisco lawmakers say that any contractor who puts in a bid will be on the outs with the city.
District Three supervisor Aaron Peskin and District Nine supervisor Hillary Ronen will introduce new legislation at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting effectively blacklisting construction companies who offer their services on the border wall project.
“Simplest explanation, it would prohibit the city from contracting with any companies that bid on the wall in the future,” a Ronen spokesperson told Curbed SF.
“We are not going to spend billions of dollars and line the pockets of businesses that engage in work that goes against the values that we hold most dear,” Ronen told the San Francisco Chronicle.
The proposed border wall was a key campaign promise for Donald Trump. Five days into his term, Trump signed an executive order instructing his administration to:
Secure the southern border of the United States through the immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border, monitored and supported by adequate personnel so as to prevent illegal immigration
No actual construction may begin until Congress approves a budget for the project, but the Customs and Border Protection office began soliciting design prototypes last week, specifying:
The wall design shall be physically imposing in height. The Government’s nominal concept is for a 30-foot high wall. Offerors should consider this height, but designs with heights of at least 18 feet may be acceptable. [...] The wall shall prevent digging or tunneling below it for a minimum of 6 feet below the lowest adjacent grade.
