A member of the El Paso City Council, Peter Svarzbein, has placed a vote on the docket that will ban the City of El Paso from hiring companies who are contracted by the federal government to build the border wall which President Trump ordered built after he took office.

In his explanation to the media at a press conference on Thursday, Svarzbein stated “We don’t need a wall, we need more bridges,” Svarzbein said, “Our city, our region is safe and this kind of project is not the kind of project that showcases our values and identity here as a border community.”

He further elaborated, “”My thought here is not to be against any business, small or large, in the region. This item really is about having a conversation and beginning a dialogue about what kind of infrastructure we want and need here.”

Of course, whether a border wall is built is not dependent on the opinions of one city council in a relatively small city.

Citizens were quick to take Svarzbeing to task. Here are some of the comments:
