SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - City Council leaders voted 5-3 to oppose President Donald Trump's executive order to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The resolution, introduced by Concilmember Georgette Gomez, joins several other cities and states who have also stated their opposition.
"The border wall is a huge mistake for our region economically and environmentally. I am happy the City Council voted to pass my resolution. Our tax dollars should be spent uplifting the quality of life for all San Diegans, and tackling our issues on road infrastructure, housing, and homelessness," Gomez said following the vote. "Building a wall will do nothing for our families and communities but place a hateful divide between two of the largest cities in Mexico and the United States."
