" "Trump comes to California, and everybody asks "…Why?"

Trump examined eight 30-foot-tall (9-meter-tall) prototypes built past year along the border in a bid to fulfill his signature campaign promise. His Justice Department sued California last week over a trio of the state's immigration laws.

President Donald Trump has arrived in San Diego, where he'll be touring the prototypes for his stalled border wall.

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer - who is not expected to meet with Trump during his visit - did not support a 2017 city resolution formally opposing the border, but he also did not veto it. Tens of thousands of people enter the US daily from Tijuana, Mexico, many on their way to work or school in San Diego.

"I even think they'll try to cross with those pole vaults that they use in the Olympics", he said as he awaited Trump's visit.

And California is among a group suing the Department of Homeland Security over the government's waiver of several environmental laws to speed along border wall projects in San Diego and Calexico - including the prototype construction.

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. The protest's Facebook page now lists the start time as 5 PM, though the president's plans remain so unpublicized that the rally's start time has been modified on the page throughout the day. Jerry Brown, its immigrant protections and the state's tax system.

Given the timing, it's hard to believe statements by White House staff that Trump's visit is not a political move.

California has emerged as an epicenter of opposition to Trump's immigration policies.

"After you've examined your wall prototypes on the border", he added, "I invite you to head north to the Central Valley - the heart of California".

After leaving the border, Trump basked in the cheers of U.S. Marines in Miramar, pointing to his work to build up the nation's military.

European Union plan to avoid hard Irish border unacceptable, says Arlene Foster
Foster appeared to offer support for the prime minister's suggestions that lessons could be learned from the Canada-US border. The Sinn Féin leader added that there could be no overall agreement on Brexit unless the issue of the Irish border was solved.

But Trump seemed optimistic that a change in leadership following the Mexican election in July could lead to a more favorable set of circumstances. He crosses the border from Mexico daily to work at a San Diego restaurant.

Other protests were planned later in Tijuana and San Diego to mark Trump's first presidential visit to California, where he examined eight nine-metre-tall prototypes built past year along the border in a bid to fulfil his signature campaign promise. No information was released about his overnight accommodations, but Los Angeles police were seen staging Tuesday morning in the vicinity of the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown Hotel near Wilshire Boulevard and Figueroa Street, and some streets in the area were closed.

"Per the Department of Transportation and the Los Angeles Police Department, downtown Los Angeles is extremely congested due to the Presidential visit".

Trump's visit comes just days after his Justice Department sued to block California laws created to protect people living in the US illegally.

"We have a lousy wall now", Trump said.

The Justice Department last week sued to block a trio of California laws created to protect people living in the US illegally. Trump has insisted Mexico pay for the wall but Mexico has adamantly refused to consider the idea. I said maybe we'll need a new force. In some brief remarks to reporters, Trump painted a curious picture of Mexican immigrants looking to cross the border. Others say they understand why people want to secure the border more.

"It's not good", said Mauricio Villlegas, 37, glancing toward the fence and prototype walls as he passed through on his way to a job at a veterinary office.

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.

On Monday Sanders stressed that the wall is something Trump "is not going to back away from" and will continue to push for.
