Trump examines border wall prototypes

The president resumed his feud with the state of California, criticizing Gov.

The sections of wall, more imposing than the existing border barrier at 30 feet high, have undergone rigorous testing in the meantime at an undisclosed location.

During his visit, Mr Trump took aim at so-called "sanctuary cities" in California - local governments that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials seeking to deport illegal immigrants. While viewing the designs, Trump said he has a strong preference for a border wall that would allow law enforcement to see through into Mexico.

He'll also address USA military personnel stationed near the border and attend the fundraiser in Los Angeles. He will also attend a fundraiser in Los Angeles, where he will stay overnight.

Indeed, Trump's maiden presidential visit to California is largely focused on the immigration matter.

The largest planned anti-Trump protest was held at San Ysidro Catholic church that offers a full view of the nearby border.

Trump's visit comes days after his Justice Department sued to block California laws created to protect people living in the USA illegally. "No wall!" near the San Ysidro crossing, where tens of thousands of people enter the US daily from Tijuana, Mexico, many on their way to work or school in San Diego. "Because the technical evaluations, the cost evaluations, everything that goes into that whole process is pretty well scripted and laid out in regulations, so you start to deviate from that and freelancing, it's reckless and perhaps trending toward an ending nobody wants, which is filled with protests".

Dozens of pro- and anti-Trump demonstrators gathered on opposite sides of the street Tuesday as President Donald Trump's motorcade entered a restricted area in the outskirts of San Diego, Calif., so he could see prototypes of his proposed border wall with Mexico.

The mayor, a business-friendly Republican and ardent supporter of the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta), said a popular cross-border airport terminal connecting San Diego and Tijuana shows that "building bridges has worked wonders". Provost said Congress has so far funded 40 miles of replacement wall - 14 miles in San Diego, 2 miles in Calexico, California, and 24 miles in El Paso, Texas.

Tillerson falls ill ahead of visit to Nigeria
He plans to send another day in Nairobi before heading to N'Djamena, Chad, and Abuja, Nigeria, on Monday and Tuesday. Secretary of State was also expected to meet with American diplomats serving at the new U.S.

Faulconer, writing in The San Diego Union-Tribune, also said San Diego police work to protect everyone regardless of immigration status, an apparent dig at Trump's push to target illegal immigration.

Referencing his 2016 campaign showdown against Hillary Clinton - who received 4 million more votes than Trump in California - the president vowed that "very soon we're going to Mars" and the nation would not be seeking to explore the red planet had his opponent won. "And many of them were criminals with criminal records and very risky people ..."

"When some people look at the U.S. -Mexico border, they see division", Faulconer said in his state of the city address in 2017.

US authorities moved semi-trailers between the prototypes and the Mexican border, offering a layer of protection.

Berkeley, Oakland and other cities have sought to stop doing business with firms involved with the wall, prompting the Associated General Contractors of America to ask Attorney General Jeff Sessions to sue to prevent states and localities from denying contracts or divesting from companies that participate in the barrier's construction. Protests had already broken out there a day ahead of Trump's arrival and a similar scene of uproar could unfold later in the day when he arrives to Los Angeles.

On Monday, members of United States and Mexican agencies gathered at the Federal Police command centre near Tijuana's A.L. Rodriguez International Airport to make final arrangements.

Tractor-trailer rigs have been parked along the US side, blocking the view from Mexico.

Construction of the eight wall prototypes in the San Diego area were completed in October of previous year.

Trump also used the occasion to reiterate a line from his campaign, saying, "For the people that say no wall, if you didn't have walls over here, you wouldn't even have a country".
