US President Wants Visibility Through Wall at Border with Mexico

Anti-Donald Trump demonstrators during a rally on March 12, 2018, in San Diego, just the day before his first visit to the state of California.

Protests are also planned across the border in Tijuana, Mexico, when Trump visits the wall prototypes built along the worldwide border to fulfill his signature campaign promise. The terminal is a few miles from the border-wall prototypes.

Donald Trump is determined at keeping those who are not legal American citizens from entering the country unless they do it the correct way.

Later, in a press briefing, flanked by members of federal law enforcement agencies, President Trump promised that the wall would save lives and money "by reducing crime, drug flow, welfare fraud, and burdens on schools and hospitals".

"And by the way, the state of California is begging us to build walls in certain areas", he added.

"He's coming to a place that he hasn't visited as president, where he is massively unpopular, where he lost by 4m votes in the election and a place where he faces huge resistance".

Meanwhile, anti-Trump protesters gathered near the Plaza Las Americas mall in San Ysidro with signs including "love has no borders" and "no hate in the Golden State".

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. Jerry Brown. The state has routinely said it will not allow local law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration investigations and raids.

The Republican brought a tough message on immigration to California during his first visit as U.S. president to the heavily Democratic state that has served as a base of resistance to many of his policies.

As protesters stood around and shouted that they didn't want the walls between the US and Mexico, Trump continued to detail just how the walls will work.

France Proposes Setting 15 as Legal Age of Sexual Consent
But the same court reversed its decision last month, saying the accused should face rape charges. He was instead charged with a crime carrying the light sentence of sexual relations with a minor.

San Diego's City Council past year passed a resolution opposing Trump's proposed wall.

The president said Tuesday that the state's sanctuary policies "put the entire nation at risk".

Trump tweeted about California's immigration policies as he flew to the state aboard Air Force One. "The criminals take refuge in these sanctuary cities and it's very risky for our police and enforcement folks". "THIS MUST STOP!" he wrote.

In Tijuana on Monday afternoon, Trump's impending visit brought much activity to the southern side of the corrugated border fence, lined with a dirt road that is littered with trash and the rusting bodies of abandoned cars. 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. He traveled to Laredo - one of Texas' safest cities - weeks after declaring his candidacy in June 2015.

"If you didn't have walls", Trump told reporters during his tour earlier Tuesday, "you wouldn't have a country".

"I have a great relationship with the president of Mexico, wonderful guy Enrique", Trump said.

Jeff Schwilk, founder of San Diegans for Secure Borders and organiser of a pro-Trump rally, the city resolution does not reflect the views of many residents, who feel the border is not secure. The mayor's office said Faulconer has been clear in his opposition to walls along the border but he did not want to blacklist companies involved in the construction of the prototypes.

Trump is now en route to San Diego from Washington, D.C. "It's something that he's going to continue to push for".

President Donald Trump says California's policy of refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities is unconstitutional, unsafe and "MUST STOP!"
