CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- An Illinois man who had been bidding to build President Trump's border wall is one of three men now accused of bombing a mosque last summer and trying to bomb a women's clinic.

WBBM's Steve Miller reports.

The firm is called Crisis Resolution Security Services, and its leader is 47-year-old Michael Hari of Clarence, Illinois, which is about an hour south of Kankakee.

Last year, Hari said he submitted a bid for a border wall. He posted a video.

“The wall will be culturally significant, a powerful architectural statement of the determination of the American people to defend their nation and its Anglo-Saxon heritage, Western culture and English language,” a narrator says in the video, which was posted on the site PRLOG last April.

Now, Hari has been arrested and accused, along with two other men, of bombing a mosque in Bloomington, Minn., last August and trying to bomb a women's clinic in Champaign in November.
