San Francisco lawmaker Hillary Ronen has introduced a bill that would prohibit the city from doing business with companies that also have contracts working on the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Together with other city councillors, Ronen made the announcement outside construction company T.Y. Lin, which recently expressed interest in a contract working on the border wall, saying:

Stick to building bridges, not walls.

While the bill would not impact companies which already have contracts working on the wall and with the city, but it would prevent any other interaction with construction companies working on the wall.

We are moving beyond symbolic protest and making it clear to companies interested in doing business with San Francisco, that we expect those companies to uphold basic principles of compassion and dedication to human rights.

But now, what we would like to know is...

Do you think San Francisco should be able to prohibit cooperation with companies working on the border wall?
