Local Lawmakers Want to Boycott Companies That Help Build Border Wall

Nily Rozic/NY State Assembly

(Emily Larsen, Liberty Headlines) Democratic leaders at the local level, from New York to San Francisco, want to boycott and divest from companies that work with the Trump administration to build a wall on the US-Mexico border.

New York Assemblywoman Nily Rozic proposed a measure that would prohibit the state from granting contracts to companies involved with building the border wall, and would prevent the state from investing in those companies.

“Many of us have been thinking about different ways we could counter the actions coming out of Washington D.C.,” Rozic told The Associated Press. “This will be a decisive and effective way of showing where our values are at.”

A group of Democratic state legislators want similar measures in Rhode Island.

The Associated Press reported:

Rep. Aaron Regunberg, a Providence Democrat, says the bill he’s introducing is meant to send notice to President Donald Trump that the state rejects xenophobia and values its immigrant communities.

Two San Francisco Supervisors also want to prevent companies which do business with the city from participating “in any way” in constructing the wall.

Pulling contracts and investments to make a political statement is not a new tactic.

New York already has restrictions on companies that do business in Iran or boycott Israel, according to the Associated Press. And California banned nonessential state-funded travel to North Carolina in protest of its “bathroom bill.”

These political statements can have unintended consequences. The San Francisco Chronicle explained:

A 2005 [San Francisco] ban on sweatshop products, for example, became so burdensome for companies to comply with that they simply stopped bidding for city contracts. At one point the city was unable to keep up with police demand for bullet-resistant vests.

It’s not clear which companies would be subject to the divestment. In fact, the New York and Rhode Island proposals would have a state agency make a list of all the companies working on the wall as the first order of business.

Hundreds of miles of fences and barriers have already been built on the US-Mexico border over the last few decades. Stock prices of construction-material companies that might build the border wall and other infrastructure projects surged to record highs the day after November’s election. Israeli construction company Magal Security Systems Ltd also saw a stock price jump just before it exhibited its products to Homeland Security officials in January. Magal was a major contractor on Israel’s West Bank barrier.

The effect the proposals would have on the health of state investments and the price of state and local infrastructure contracts is also unclear.

“San Francisco works with all the major construction firms in America — in fact, we are putting the finishing touches on an over $2 billion trans-bay terminal involving hundreds of companies,” San Francisco Supervisor Aaron Peskin told the San Francisco Chronicle. “And if other cities and states that spend billions on public works projects start adopting similar measures, then it sends a powerful message.”

Boycotting is one of many ways that state and local leaders are trying to leverage power to oppose Trump.

Connecticut lawmakers introduced a bill that would prevent any state funds from being used to enforce Trump’s Executive Order banning immigrants from certain countries.

    Liberals want to keep boycotting and divest from companies that work with the Trump administration to build a wall on the US-Mexico border, keep doing this and you will crash your portfolio. liberals don’t seem to get it.

    • sunshinegirl

      Al Butterfield…..I guess if you’re a Libtard and only have a brain the size of a pea it just doesn’t know how to do anything but evil.

      • Kathryn Jordan

        Guess I must be a Libtard. I have a brain, but it is NOT the size of a pea. Liberals know quite a lot. If anything, the Republican Party are the ones who are evil.

    • Phyllis Schultz

      They are so busy whining and being outraged that they lost, they can’t think of anything else. They get more ridiculous every day, and don’t have enough sense to realize it. You know that old saying , if you don’t play my way I’ll pick up my toys and go home. They are still in pouting mode. Just a bunch of hippocrites.

    • Kathryn Jordan

      Oh we Liberals get it. We liberals will keep boycotting.

      • sunshinegirl

        You must like the situation Obama has put our Country in if you’re a Liberal. Sorry anyone that would vote for either Obama or Hil LIAR y doesn’t think much of their Country or the Constitution that our Founding Father’s died for to protect the people.

        • Kathryn Jordan

          The Republicans fought Obama every step of the way. I think highly of my country and the United States Constitution; I am a paralegal so I would respect the Constitution. I don’t think you think that much of our country and the Constitution that our Founding Fathers died for. Right now, President Trump is attacking the 1st Amendment in regards to the Freedom of the Press.

          • Strider-51

            Kathryn, the facts. How many times did the Supreme Court overturn Barry’s illegal EO’s. So who was acting as a dictator and in violation of the Constitution? Just asking my dear heart. WTFU.

          • Strider-51

            Just because you are a paralegal does not necessarily mean that you would respect the constitution. I have taken the oath many times, the first when I entered the Marine Corps when I was 17. No one has ever relieved me of that oath and they never will. And, that is why I am diametrically opposed to you and those who think as you do. I have spilled my own blood in wars (good and bad) to defend the constitution, can you say the same? Your perception of the US and the Constitution is blind and deaf.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Then you answer me this question: why did I get an A in my Constitutional Law class if not for all the hard work I put into that class? I have a medical condition that keeps out of the military and owning a gun. I respect our troops who defend our country; and yest I DO RESPECT the Constitution of the United States of America.

          • Strider-51

            I guess that you got that A from a liberal progressive school. Either way you still should have the concept of our being a sovereign country and our right to build a wall to define and protect our borders from the invading hoards of illegal immigrants. The US has the most lenient immigration laws of any country by allowing over 1.5 million legal immigrants a year. Just how many more should we allow in to a country that can’t support the numbers we have here already? You liberals just do not look at the BIG picture and avoid all facts.

    • Kathryn Jordan

      You don’t seem to get that even with a wall, people will still be able to tunnel their way into America. What is the use of spending all that money to build a wall if that can still happen? Ever thought about that, Al Butterfield? Republicans and President Trump don’t get it.

      • Strider-51

        Yes, they can tunnel, but the tunnels will be found with technology. A wall will keep out so so many. Less will enter through tunnels than the wide open spaces of Texas and Arizona. If you think otherwise you have no concept of common sense let alone logical thinking.

  • jgfsmf

    Liberals are getting more and more disgusting day by day. They don’t care about us Americans one single bit.

      Igfsmf – You are almost correct. The Libs have always been disgusting, the difference is they are now fully exposed for the in-American dirt that they are.

    • We the People, Yippee!

  • gage

    Why don’t you stupid liberals use your small-called brains to work for the people you represent instead of trying to bring down the only person, President Trump, that has the guts to restore our country that Obama tried to destroy. Stay strong President Trump and for you whiny Republicans who won’t stand with him, your constituents will show you the way out the door at your next election!

    • Concerned

      These Liberals are not only getting worse, but do not seem to think the next Senatorial election matters. It appears that they will be in for a big surprise if they continue this type of hate. If companies in their states or regions are not interested in the job, then companies who believe in U.S. security and helping create jobs for their company, their cities, and their state will do the job. It appears that there are a lot more “dreamers” than there are real workers who believe in the United States.

      • RLS

        And they are not the majority….they are anarchists who bully people to try and make them back down. Well, we are standing our ground.

        • Kathryn Jordan

          We may be in the minority in Congress, but we will take back Congress! It’s Republicans who are the anarchists who like to bully people. Sen. McConnell is one of those bullies; he needs to crawl from under the rock he slithered from. I would say that the Liberals are standing their ground as well.

          • gage

            Kathryn. you just made our point. Honey you have A BIG wish that will never come true.You are one of those uneducated and uninformed liberals we all refer too.You know Obama divided this country along with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson more than any others on earth. President Trump is “slithering” all the way to cleaning the swamp! Oh girl, you have some great role models for your lost party. I guess you really love botoxed face Nancy Pelosi! Every liberal in Congress is either crooked and not caught or in jail for stripping Americans their hard earned money. Deal with it dear, stop whining and get on with your life, if you have one!

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Gage you think that you will always control the Senate and House of Representatives. Deal with it, the Democrats will come back. Trump hasn’t “cleaned the swamp” in Washington, DC. He has made it worse. Just look at his cabinet — all full of racist billionaires; Steve Bannon being the worst advisor that could have. Yes, I respect Nancy Pelosi and all the Democrats in Congress. I have a life; I don’t think you have one.

Plus the peoples eyes are opened, It may be a very long time.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            So it may be a long time, but the Democrats will take back both houses!

            You dumb Republicans won’t open your eyes to the fact that the Republican controlled Congress are anarchists, and bullies. President Trump is a MAJOR bully. And you guys don’t see it. At least I do.

          • tex cruzzer

            Trusting Muslim immigration would be akin to leaving all your exterior doors open 24/7 and going about your business like your house is safe. No, the left has no common sense and attempts to bully everyone else to think as they do. Where are the right wing marches, protesters, looters, cop killers, flag, car and building burning thugs.

      • Kathryn Jordan

        Get real Concerned. These Liberals are ready for the next Senatorial election. The hate began with Trump’s inaugural speech; that speech only divided the United States even more than it was at the time of the election. If you think that Liberals are dreamers, so be it; at least they believe in Democracy and not having an election bought

        • Jmrdyn

          Like the Kennedy’s did for Jack? Like the Clintons did? No – forget that! They murdered their way to power and massive riches. You are probably young – so go back to your history and look at the way the Dems have conducted their business. They SUCK, and lie notoriously. We (conservatives) are going to get several of your weak seats next election, and they know it! Check out the facts before running your naive opinions in public!

          • Kathryn Jordan

            I’ve been voting for 32 years so don’t call me young. I know my history thank you kindly. You conservatives SUCK and LIE your way to get want you want. You conservatives DO NOT believe in Democracy; you only believe that it is okay to have elections bought.

          • Jmrdyn

            BTW, are you a minority or illegal immigrant. Just wondering.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            I am a white-caucasian. Was born in Houston, Texas some 50 years ago. You must be a minority or an illegal immigrant to ask that kind of question.

          • Jmrdyn

            Actually no! Just make stupid mistakes at times! Let’s face it, I have a perfect excuse. I’m a male. Loved Houston in the 50’s. Not so much now. I know enough about Houston to know that your statement is based on extreme prejudice against immigrants and minorities. So, I am stupid sometimes. You, however are a mid to late 50 year old prejudiced woman from an area that is noted for that. Do they still have the street in Houston the Mexicans aren’t allowed to go across? Don’t deny that — my aunt and uncle and two cousins still living there. Good luck in the future. You will need luck, with your shallow understandings.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            No I am not in my mid to lad 50s. I am 50. I was born and raised in Houston until my father’s job with IBM moved us to California. I remember Houston very well. Would not want to live in Texas now. And by the way, I am not prejudiced woman and nor am I naive.

        • Concerned

          Kathryn, Thanks for the reply, but one more time you are on the wrong side of history. The United States is a representative Republic and not a Democracy. A representative Republic allows all states and all citizens to have a voice; while a democracy leads to dictatorships and one-party rule as we see in Cuba, Venezuela, and California.
          Even if you don’t think so, Trump’s inaugural speech was much more unifying to the bulk of Americans than any of Obama’s speeches. His success comes from the common folks, rural American, and blue-collar workers who have been used as pawns and ignored for years.
          When you talk about buying elections, you simply need to see that Hillary spent ($1.2B) nearly twice as much as Trump, the Clinton Foundation (supported by the Secretary of State Clinton) seems to have laundered many $Billions while people attempted to “buy influence” from the Clinton’s, and it appears that a vast majority of illegal votes during the on-going investigations of voter fraud / illegal alien registration and participation went to the Democrats.
          Fortunately, we are not the judges as history will be the judge of Obama, Hillary, the Clinton’s, and the Democratic Party during this era in the History of the United States. The evidence continues to build as the whistle-blowers are coming out in strength. My guess is that we have not yet seen half of the illegal activities of the Obama Administration.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Well Trump is on his way to becoming a dictator. He can’t deal with an adversarial media. And no, I am not on the wrong side of history. You are. We took the idea of Democracy from the ancient Greeks. and if you think that Trump will keep this country safe, you are out of your mind.

          • Concerned

            Where do you get such information, none of Trump’s actions suggest this. Obama’s actions disobeyed the law. Trump has not violated the law or the constitution. Yes, you are right, the idea of Democracy goes back to the ancient Greeks, but our founders, representing 13 states, decided that a representative Republic was a better form of government to preserved states’ rights and allow people to have a voice. This strategy has proven to be successful for 240 years. Trump’s actions to keep our country safe are far superior to Obama’s open borders! How can open borders keep any country safe?
            Mexico’s immigration laws are much more severe than the U.S. immigration laws, so why are people upset when the President is simply following the law to protect the U.S.
            Our country has always had “controlled” immigration. Even with the ban on illegal aliens, the U.S. still averages 1.5M “LEGAL” immigrants and refugees “EVERY” year. This is the most of any country in the world! The illegals have clogged our immigration systems delaying legal immigrants for years!
            In the last 20 years, the control has been lost and flagrantly exploited by the illegal immigrants. What do you propose relative to immigration, immigrants with skills to benefit the U.S., with a desire to assimilate or those who do not? Mexican cartels are now firmly entrenched throughout the U.S.
            As a country, we must think long-term, not short-term. As stated multiple times, the Muslim strategy is to destroy the U.S. from within. This is done by bringing in 10’s of thousands who do not assimilate and plan to install Sharia Law (not U.S. law) as the Laws within their enclaves, concentrate their populations so that they can vote in all their representatives within that region. Is this what you want? There are already multiple ISIS linked training centers inside the United States today and over 1000 on the terrorist watch list in the United States!

          • Kathryn Jordan

            It’s also done through propaganda from ISIS. or are you brainless to realize that?

          • Concerned

            Wow, congratulations, you went straight to the point???

          • Jmrdyn

            This kind of asinine statement is why I asked the inappropriate question, for which I owe you an apology. Therefore, I apologize. However, you are way wrong here. Our gov’t is as Concerned said – not a democracy, but a representative Republic. Therefore the electoral college. Yeah, now you’ll say that is no good. Just like you libturds always do!

          • Kathryn Jordan

            There were only TWO states that WERE republics. TEXAS was a republic, after winning their independence from Mexico, BEFORE it became a state . California’s State Flag reads “The Republic of California”. Get that through your THICK SCULLS; BOTH YOU AND CONCERNED. I AM GLAD I AM LIBTARD!

          You need to read up on the Clintons and their “foundation”. Hillary was the one attempting to buy the Presidency and with the Russian connections. There are zero money trails to Trump from Russia, there are obvious money trails from Russia to the Clintons, and basically treason in the selling of 20% of our Uranium.

The days of Noah are here in it’s beginning. Look at all the hate , violence , racism, and multitude of immorality and unethical acts of people primarily from the left. It is all unpresidented. President Trump is a reprieve from God to finish the harvest. We are in for terrible times a head. We are just seeing the beginning of birth pains.

          And it is also said in Matthew 26:52 All who take up the sword shall die by the sword. In Matthew 25 it reads: When the Son of Man comes as King and all the angels with him, he will sit on his royal throne, and the people of all the nations will be gathered before him. Then he will divide them into two groups, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the righteous people at his right and the others at his left. The the King will say to the people on his right, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father! Come and possess the kingdom which has been prepared for you ever since the creation of the world. I was hungry and fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothes me; I was sick and you visited me.’ The righteous will then answer him, ‘When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink? When did we ever see you a stranger and welcome you in our homes, or naked and clothe you? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?” The King will reply ‘I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these followers of mine, you did it for me!’
          Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Away from me, you that are under God’s curse! Away to the eternal fire which has been prepared for the Devil and his angels! I was hungry but you would not feed me, thirsty but you would not give me a drink; I was a stranger but you would not welcome me in your homes, naked but you would not clothe me; I was sick and in prison but you would not take care of me.’ Then they will answer him, ‘When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and we would not help you?’ The King will reply, ‘I tell you, whenever you refused to help one of these least important ones, you refused to help me.’ These, then, will be sent off to eternal punishment, but the righteous will go to eternal life.

      New York Assemblywoman Nily Rozic may be a “stupid liberal” but that is not the worst of her titles. She incites that New York blackmail people and companies to keep them from participating in legal business with the United States. Her intent is to stand in the way and impede the legitimate business of the United States by harmful discrimination against US citizens and companies and strip them of their freedom of association rights. Her speech and her actions are seditious against both the Unites States and The People. This is not a case of apartheid based divestiture. This is a case of a woman inciting to blackmail citizens and inciting New York join in as an accomplice by rebelling against lawful actions of the United States. On her business card she needs to add “blackmail and sedition artist.”

    Generally, I don’t think boycotts are very effective. However, to the extent that it calls attention to a problem I support them. In this case, it will amount to more welfare for companies involved in building an ineffective FENCE that will have little impact on the problem. It is just a lot of hot gas expelled by draft dodger Trump, and the poor misinformed fools that sucked it up like it was enriched oxygen will find out out they have been SOLD a solution with no chance of success.

      After all the blustering and defiant talk about remaining a sanctuary for immigrants even if Trump cuts off federal funds to California, Governor Moonbeam has already has his hand out for federal aid to help in the Lake Oroville dam situation.
      I guess he figures he better get those federal dollars while he can.

        We had a Trillion dollars for infrastructure repairs, that Obama squandered, and Jerry the jerk spends $21B on illegals and the train.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            I have respect for my governor and I know that my parents have respect for him as well. We would not have voted for him if we didn’t. We don’t trust the President as does most Californians.

      • Kathryn Jordan

        The name of California’s governor is Jerry Brown. I think you have your names mixed up. And regardless to what happened in Berkeley at the University of California Berkeley, federal aid should come to help the Lake Oroville dam situation. I am sure that if you had a problem that this, you would want federal aid. Come off that high horse of yours.

        • RB

          Yes, California is entitled to federal aid to help in the case of emergencies such as the Lake Oroville dam situation because California is a state within the United States. As a state California is expected and required to follow federal laws, which in the case of federal immigration laws, California has been ignoring them for years.
          It is California’s governor who has been openly badmouthing the POTUS and his attempts to follow existing laws on the books concerning illegal immigration. If JB continues to be defiant and insists on breaking federal laws, then he must be prepared to face the consequences. The federal government has the power to withhold federal funds in cases where the states break federal laws. JB can avoid this whole situation by agreeing to follow the federal laws that all states are required to follow.
          There is this simple thing in the US Constitution called the Supremacy Clause. It states that: “This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
          The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution”
          This makes the Supremacy Clause the cornerstone of the whole American political structure and it makes it perfectly clear that federal law trumps (no pun intended) state law. Since JB is the lawfully sworn governor of California, he has sworn to uphold the Constitution and part of that is to obey federal law.
          One of the ways that the federal government has to ensure that states follow federal laws is to withdraw federal funds. If JB fulfills his promise to break federal law, it is he that will put California in that position. Hopefully he will realize that as state in the union California is required to follow federal law, and that as an officially sworn governor, he is required to follow it also.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            I can tell you that Californians do not trust Trump to do what is in the best interest of California. We rely on immigrants for farm labor and for high tech jobs. Where do you think your high tech gadgets come from? The Silicon Valley in California. And I know about the Supremacy Clause in the United States Constitution; I am a paralegal.

          • RB

            All I can say is that a big part of the country didn’t believe that Obama had the best interest of this country when he committed to several actions in the last eight years, but we had to live with it because he was POTUS.
            Now Trump has won the election, largely because many people weren’t happy with the policies of Obama and want change.
            Polls in the last couple of months since Trump has won have been showing an increase in the number of people who think the country is heading in the right direction, so hopefully this will continue.
            Immigration is a big asset to the US, but illegal immigration is a huge drag on our resources in so many ways. It used to be said that immigrants “do the work Americans won’t do” and that may have once been true, but I feel that it no longer is. Immigrants are taking advantage of the many benefits that they receive and are bettering themselves to the point where they are being hired over American workers because they are willing to work for less money. That is hurting wages and also keeping huge numbers of Americans out of work. Also many of the high tech companies that you mentioned in California, are lobbying for an increase in foreign workers with an H-1B visa so that they can bring them into the US at a lower pay scale and displace American workers. It’s not always that there is a shortage of skilled American workers, it just that hi-tech companies don’t want to pay Americans the wages they want when foreign workers are willing to work for less.
            The problem with that is that it keeps Americans out of work, plus the majority of the foreign workers eventually leave the US and return to their home country where they now have the experience they learned in the US to take home and demand better positions.
            Trump did inherit a mess in a lot of ways. All we can do is to stand behind him and hope that he can do what he says. While he can be pretty rough around the edges, I’m pretty impressed so far in what he has accomplished in such a short time.
            I still think that JB is going to eventually have to find a way to work within the guidelines of federal laws on immigration or face the consequences. I doubt that Trump wants to use the threat of withholding federal funds to California, but if that is the only way to get JB to act lawfully, then that may be the only recourse. California’s loose interpretation on immigration laws is hurting the rest of the country by allowing illegals to flood into this country. One of the main complaints about California not following federal immigration law is that California is not only protecting the good immigrants, but it is also protecting those criminal immigrants that have committed serious crimes and continue to commit them in many cases because they are not held accountable because sanctuary cities will not work with federal authority so that they can be deported. That needs to stop.
            If you look at Trump’s immigration stance, basically all he wants to do is to enforce the existing laws on the books, laws that Obama and others ignored over the last several years. Enforcing the laws already in place not only will help protect the American worker, it will also help to strengthen the security of this country.
            I realize that many do not like or trust Trump, but he won the election and to quote Obama, “elections have consequences”. All we can do is to support him and hope that he does a good job for the country. If not, then the American people can vote him out in four years.

    • gage

      I suggest that the Federal Government put at least two or three illegals in the homes of the libs who want open borders for illegals and Islamic terrorists. George Sorros should donate three quarters of his wealth to set up a compound for him, Meryl Streep, George Clooney and all the other brainless hollywoods with a wall built like President Trump wants to build at our border. The shouldl let these people move into at least one or two of their mansions. I think they would soon wake up and smell the roses! Oh. I forgot they want hard working people foot the bill with OUR MONEY.

Unless of course you don’t need them because you can get good fearless Americans to do the job.

    • MARLENE HESSLER

      I disagree with that approach. 95 million out of work Americans and you want to use the folks that put them there. Somehow that’s wrong to me.

      HOW TO PAY:
      Put a surcharge on all money transfers going to Mexico, and those terrorist countries too. Any % works. And, after the wall is finished, continue it to pay for maintaining the wall.
      Import tax of 20% ? Also.
      $1 a barrel for all the oil imported from Mexico.

      This more than covers construction cost. And, we reap further savings from getting the anchor babies and illegals out of public schools. That also cuts back on the gangs in schools, drugs in schools, and all those things drag down any education kids in those schools get. No wonder graduation rates are about 50%. What jobs do the flunkies get? None, they wind up collecting welfare from you.

    This is how the wall can be paid for:
    #1 capture and seize all monies connected to the drug lords
    #2 all monies withheld from sanctuary cities will go to help pay for the wall
    #3 all persons in the USA illegally and receiving government welfare, food stamps etc.. will have to donate labor to help build the wall
    Any questions? Because I have more ideas to get the wall built. Let’s just do it. Keep all foreigners out of America who do not have permission to stay here.

    • paul

      Trump is working on intercepting the billions the illegals send home while working illegally and not paying taxes.

    • MARLENE HESSLER

      There are already laws on the books to confiscate any vehicle, etc.,used by criminals.

      Put a surcharge on money transfers to Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and the terrorist countries already named. Hundreds of billions every year leave the US this way. A 20% tax (or other rate) would likely cover the wall cost easily.

      The import tax already being negotiated.

      A $1 a barrel tax on all oil imported from Mexico.

      A bonus: Taxpayers save hundreds of billions in school taxes for all the illegals and anchor rocks. And, schools will be safer without the gangs. And, the drugs should go down. The 50% graduation rate in cities coast to coast will go up eventually as the kids are less distracted by the thugs. What do you think all those nongrads will do for a living? Leech off taxpayers for another generation is the sad answer.

    I think liberals are forgetting that the majority of the US actually wants this wall. I believe it is 62 percent or something like that. This is a switch because I thought I heard the liberal Democrats in washington say the wall wouldn’t work, so why are they concerned about it being built? See, liberals don’t give a s**t about the working class. They are willing to take these jobs away from people who might have been out of work for a long time all because of their twisted way of thinking and their will to protect criminal illegals and terrorists that could kill thousands of people again.

    We don’t care what they complain about immigration laws. They must follow Federal laws on the book period.

Not made by Mexican hands but American hands! All illegal immigrants need to back to their home country , period! If they want the job then they need to go back and apply for US Naturalized documents until they are legally enter into United States. No criminals, illegal aliens and drug cartels allow in United States. Sorry for anchored families but they have to leave this country and go back to their home country or they get in the line to apply for US Naturalized documents if they are approved legally.

Private citizens have the freedom to boycott businesses, not the other way around. So long as the company puts in a proper bid other government entities don’t have the right to tell those companies they will automatically be disenfranchised from other government contracts.

    The liberal progressives are already telling people in business what and who they must provide services to. That is discussing and tyrannical enough. There is no depth to which slime liberals will stoop.

    My vote is let them stew with their millions of illegals, withdraw all federal funds to those cities/states and build the wall. A nation without secure borders is not a nation.

  • Bob

    Build that wall. Keep out the criminal illegals and Islamic terrorist. We have had enough of their nonsense.

  • RLS

    We are talking national security here….the rights of the American people, over the rights of illegals to come in and destroy our economy and attack our citizens. If your representative doesn’t put you and your family first, and the best interests of America, vote them out of office, they don’t deserve to be your representative.

  • John McClain

    You know, if you hate the freedom one only gets in America, if nothing done in “the American way”, the way we’ve many things from our inception to the present, if having a “National Identity” is offensive, if one believes the culture of the past, totally unfit, and beyond ignoring and going one’s own way, wouldn’t it be easier to simply leave America, and go to one of these places that exactly fit’s one’s belief system?
    We once were truly “a light, shining dimly in a deep darkness”, and our feeble light was inspiration for many other Peoples to choose to try their hand at freedom, liberty, and most of all, real justice.
    We remain alone with principles, mostly because we don’t use them, so they don’t get worn out, no fingerprints to cause rust, no exposure to sunlight, to break down with UV, but they remain as “the rule of Law over Government”, the constitution remains in its unique position, it still contains every tool needed to correct our government, both form and substance, all that is necessary is for “good men to do something”, because we’ve proved out the maxim, “all that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing”, Sir Edmund Burke.
    What the politicians don’t know is boycotts work both ways, it just is a matter of a disconnect in time. Every good business will find the work it needs, because our country has been allowing its structure to rot, and is crumbling, and every good business will only do business in states that are honest, and boycotts for political purpose is by no means, it is “Alinskyite”, subversive.
    Every state which chooses not to follow the “law of the land” for border control, control of imigration, and basic police purposes, and fixed standards, “equal in all regards, across all personal lines”, meaning crime is crime, criminals who steal are put in jail, those who steal into the state are returned “with prejudice”, and treating all other states with equanimity, must not receive federal funding.
    At the same time, no state should receive any federal funding, since it all comes from the revenue the “several states collect” in taxes, and it is a waste, triple, fake money travelling back and forth, with “skim” happening at every bit of movement.
    If a state wishes to fund education, nothing stops any, except the revenue issue, and budget constraints. To fund those who have broken federal law is criminal, regardless of “feelings” of officials, from the Elect, because they are servants, not rulers. It is regardless of feelings of “The People of The States”, because security in the nation is the first duty of federal, constitutional government.
    Almost every issue of federal funding, is a matter of political desires, and the use of bribery, coercion, and threats, to violate sound, well considered law, with control the first issue, the “supposed issue” being the ‘useful tool’, in twisting arms, and pushing people, against priniple, and proper purpose.
    We have a “National Creed”, we established a standard of principle for the finding of “natural law, pertaining to People, in stating; “we believe these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, and men for governments for the purpose of defending those rights.” Our Declaration of Independence, and the natural rights of Man, establishes our rights to be individual, undeniable, and the force of law which we use to establish governments.
    Our entire foundation is built on the notion, “there is no state without people, people establish government to protect their natural rights, and ‘all the People’, meaning all those under the jurisdiction of this established government alone, must be defended in their rights, as a matter of law. As a matter of personal priniple, any one person may extend their personal force and efforts to defend the same for others who haven’t established government for such a purpose, but anyone who suggests “any people” are responsible for extending this over others is completely ignoring the origin of rights, our “nature of our equality”, and the fact they demand of others, their own point of view, and their labor, without recompense.
    Few are aware of it, but after Mexico broke its ties with Spain through war, the leaders took our own “Declaration of Independence”, translated it, changed word or two, but declared their Nation independent using our principles. They then took our constitution, and established “The Republic of Mexico”, with the intent of being a free and independent People and Nation of Sovereign States. Mexico was not “a people, well educated in the principles of the rights of Man”, because they didn’t have three or four decades of dedicated preaching, by protestant, first principle seeking educating preachers, but were aclimated to the imposition of authority by their “Catholic tradition”, and our own war was a product of their corruption, and many militant Americans caught up in the middle of the “re-consolidation of central government power”, and the deliberate reduction of authority in their states.
    We, The American Public, are little less ignorant today, of the real issues that life and liberty hang on, than they were at their own moment of truth, and effective loss of their republic. Every right we actually have and practice, remains because our constitution remains, despite the total lack of respect most of government, and most of “liberals and liberalism” have for it, because it did in fact “enumerate in hard language, a few specific rights”, and enough of us prove out every day, our willingness to take a stand and defend them.
    Absent the extreme right, those who actually believe the words of the Constitution, the established first principles of our Nation, despite the majority ignorance, and consequential failure to hold up what they depend on as they fight against it, this nation would already have transitioned from a fascist government, still having to meet a modicum of “The People’s” demands to remain in power, to a full on communist state, which perhaps would have been better, because we would have fallen hard, and have all those harsh realities on the top of our minds, not pushed aside.
    We have a bare, niggling possibility of reversing the abject destruction, not only of actual structure, infrastructure, and the consumption of our “founding capital”, but we’ve allowed the derogation of first principles, without reason, facts, not even good cause, and we’ve done so for lack of simply refuting the ancient lies, put forth for the ignorant.
    We have no chance of regaining control of Our Nation, with a Constitution, and that being well imposed Over government, except that we recognise we must win the debate over utopian ideology, by confronting the lies, not sidestepping them, no reducing the very real impact they have on community and culture. We will fight for our Nation, or we will watch it slide away, and become a “fairytale”, much as the Kennedy Adminstration has become the “Camelot fairytale”, and the truth, the facts of why what took place, were, has been carefully buried by those who colluded in his assassination.

    Where do these legislatures get their education? The state cannot boycott or censure a contractor who has legally applied or received a contract from the federal government. You can only bar a company from competitive bids if they have been charged or currently under investigation for wrongdoings in their applicable field. These people just make up rules as they go for things they happen to disagree with.

  • lucifer

    The Estupidos are making themselves known in all fronts. Great do as you plan. Federal financial help will not get to these states for not following Federal Law. They hold the funds, so these bunch of butt hurt democrats can whine all they want. Thank You.

  • bill14729 .

    Deport these Liberals along with the illegals

  • Randy822

    Sad to say it may take a horrific terrorist act from across the border to stun Democrats into stopping their total idiotic nonsense. Come to think of it probably not. 🙁

  • DEPLORABLE ME

    They will either be VOTED OUT or CARRIED OUT feet first. OUR CHOICE; and VOTING has not worked in the past. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/472665c6ece7e2f7b3e5fae1dfe9665b6929bf954e3f79da66610beb3f2af308.jpg

  • Louie Rey

    Who cares? You don’t think that the people that will be hired to build the wall aren’t going to be happy for the work? Thank goodness that the Democratic Party is the party of tolerance. And thanks to their tolerance our they’d like to have our borders open to anyone and everyone regardless of their intentions. If they’re so concerned why don’t they volunteer their residences to these illegals and take care of them? If you were to ask them they’d obviously say that’s not what THEY want for themselves, it’s what they want for YOU. I don’t think so.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    so you are ready to see a second war between the states? It won’t be over the economy and slavery; it will be over the resistance to Trump’s hatred added to fear! The last best president was Obama. Trump is only destroying things. And Kelley, you might want to learn how to spell “their” in your statement “let the stupids support there states”. You misspelled their. Take and English class?

    • Burt Marlow

      Take an English class is the correct English my friend. Please look at the growth and stock market to judge whether Trump is destroying something. The last person I saw destroying something was a protesting democrat on the news and attacking a Trump supporter.

      • Kathryn Jordan

        I KNOW my English! I’ve gotten all A’s in my English classes even in my Mother’s English class. Glad you saw a protesting Democrat on the news and attacking a Trump supporter.

  • susiejg

    Well, she’s definitely all Willy Nily. . .if it’s not Warren’s Free Screech, then it’s scatterbrained Willy Nily, said Roseanne Roseannadanna. Looks like she has just issued an invitation to present HER OWN SELF for boycott next time she’s up for election! Calling All Cars! Nily wishes upon the stars to be boycotted very next election. Start the planning early… WHO will replace Nily? Line up early!

  • Robert Johnson

    Good deprive yourselves and the citizens of your states an opportunity to invest and bring them profits which in turn affords the state tax revenue. Demand that your free citizens support your laws. You the Government of the people by the people for the people. More opportunity for others who support and Voted for Trump. More tax dollars for states that support Trump. Whether you like it or not Trump is the President of the United States of America. In the end those who do not get behind him will Lose. Even Ted Turner and George Soros would use the opportunity to fill there coffers with tax payer dollars. You Liberals are all hypocrites.

  • Jerry Kimbro

    The DemonRats are “has-beens”, they may as well get used to it.

  • 2nd amendment vs evil govt

    one good turn deserves another…….President Trump withhold Federal money from illegal sanctuary cities……….NYC & SFO is your job #1! we do not want your Global/International Bolshevik Marxism. it is a failure to the tune of over 120 million people murdered since 1917.

  • John Keel

    Everyone of you liberal MFs need to take a illegal family and support them for a year then see how you feel about giving our tax money away.
