Facts on prototypes of Trump's border wall

State Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, called Trump's first visit to California, only to see prototype border walls, "shameless" and called on state Democrats to "ramp up the pressure".

The state's Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, suggested Trump visit a railway construction site during his trip instead of prototypes for a barrier along the Mexican border, saying the state's focus is "on building bridges, not walls". "But here in San Diego we view it much differently". Brown deviated from his usual measured tone to call Sessions' visit "a political stunt" and proclaim that Washington is "basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy." Trump settled the cases before his inauguration, an agreement recently upheld by the Ninth Circuit.

Immigrant activists, church leaders and local elected officials are calling for demonstrations to show President Donald Trump that border communities oppose his plans to build a towering wall on the California-Mexico line.

Ahead of the visit, a few dozen people gathered for a pro-Trump rally on the U.S. side of the border near the prototypes, while a similar number of the president's detractors came to the San Ysidro border post.

Not long after Trump touched down in San Diego just before noon, swarms of demonstrators rallying against his administration and his supporters were already out in full force - divided by a row of uniformed officers holding onto batons.

"If you didn't have walls over here, you wouldn't even have a country", Trump said.

The trip comes as the Trump administration battles California over its refusal to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. "We have to have a couple of disagreements before we get there". "He would be welcome as our president if he stopped his racism".

"This guy is going to get impeached".

Trump then wanted to have Daniels check out a condominium in Florida, but Munyan said that she declined the offer. Daniels and her attorney want to return the hush money to make the agreement to stay quiet null and void.

Congress has yet to approve the funding amid skepticism and Democratic opposition, but an administration official said the wall would save far more money than it cost.

"Per the Department of Transportation and the Los Angeles Police Department, downtown Los Angeles is extremely congested due to the Presidential visit". In California, just 22% of voters approved of the job Trump was doing as president in a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll in November; 66% disapproved.

Four years after he first proposed a wall, an idea that helped vault him to the White House, he will on Tuesday finally be able to touch solid concrete on some of the eight barriers, 30ft tall and 30ft wide, arrayed in the desert outside San Diego.

"California thrives because we welcome immigrants and innovators from across the globe", Brown says in the letter, in which he also says that "our prosperity is not built on isolation".

Over 100,000 of us travel back and forth each day for school, work, shopping, and to visit the wonderful restaurants and cultural venues on both sides of the border.

On the other side of the border, a small group of anti-Trump protesters vented their frustration, and announced plans to boycott United States businesses over the frontier.
