Illinois Introduces Bill To Punish Any Company That Works On Trump’s Wall

( — 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.
