In California, Donald Trump examines Mexico border wall designs

US president is off to visit California first time since he won the election

US President Donald Trump arrived in San Diego County, southern California, on Tuesday to survey the border wall prototypes he had commissioned, as around 100 protesters gathered on the US side of the border and security was ramped up on the Mexican side.

After viewing the wall prototypes in an area of the border heavily cordoned off and far from the rallies on the US side, addressed the military at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar before flying to Los Angeles and attend a high-dollar fundraiser in Beverly Hills.

US Correspondent Rebecca Wright from California where prototypes for Trump's controversial border wall are ready for inspection. Jerry Brown. The state has routinely said it will not allow local law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration investigations and raids.

He further slammed the Democrat for immigration and tax policy adding that while he thought Brown was a "nice guy" but "has not done the job". "So you can be sure I'm going to use every power I have to stop them". Trump and the Department of Justice said that California was "obstructing federal immigration enforcement efforts" and filed the lawsuit. "Save taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars by reducing crime, drug flow, welfare fraud, and burdens on schools and hospitals", the president said.

"While California may not have - he may not have won that state, there is certainly a lot of support for this president, not just there but across the country", she said.

The issue has led to heightened tensions between California and the Trump administration.

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

Toys 'R' Us said to prepare for shutdown of United States operations
Toys "R" Us in the United Kingdom went into administration in February, after talks to sell the business withered. That became apparent on Monday when the stocks of two of the world's biggest toy makers tumbled in US trading.

THE FACTS: Trump made a similar claim last month on Twitter but has yet to say who in California wants the wall.

The Trump administration seemed stuck on the idea of banning legal immigration as well - in the form of family-based migration and the diversity lottery - and all the bills put forward for a vote in the Senate failed.

On the other side of the border, in Tijuana, Mexico, residents laughed off the idea that the monolithic slabs will stop desperate immigrants. "You have sanctuary cities where you have criminals living in sanctuary cities, and then the mayor of Oakland goes out and notifies when ICE is going in to pick them up", he said.

He will likely spend the night at an as-yet unidentified hotel in downtown Los Angeles, where several streets have been closed off in preparation.

Trump Tuesday tweeted about California's immigration policies as he flew to the state aboard Air Force One.

"When some people look at the U.S. -Mexico border, they see division", Faulconer said in his State of the City address in 2017. His visit is only expected to last one night.

Ahead of his arrival, the president tweeted that "thousands of risky, violent criminal aliens are released" as a result of California's immigration sanctuary policies. He'll tour prototypes of a border wall, hoping to project momentum on a project he promised during his campaign but hasn't yet brought to fruition.
