L.A. councilman's proposal targets companies seeking work on Trump's planned border wall

The L.A. Times reports:
Companies that do business with the city of Los Angeles would have to disclose if they also have contracts to work on President Trump’s proposed border wall under a motion unveiled Thursday.

City Councilman Gil Cedillo’s proposal would require prospective and existing contractors to state “under affidavit” whether they have any contracts for building Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Companies from around the country are bidding to build the wall, which Trump made a rallying point in his presidential campaign.

Cedillo, who opposes the wall, said at a news conference that his motion is about “transparency.”
