Trump Inspects Proposed Models for Border Wall

Captured undocumented immigrants walk past a stretch of border levee wall while being taken into custody by Border Patrol agents

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.

President Trump inspects border wall prototypes in Otay Mesa, Calif., on March 13, 2018.

"You see, in California we are focusing on bridges, not walls", Brown said in the letter, in which he also noted that past presidents have used their inaugural visits to the state to celebrate its diversity.

"I have a message for you straight from the heart of the American people, and you know what that is".

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

Sky News' US correspondent Greg Milam said Mr Trump's visit came after he had "upended the news agenda" by firing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. "No wall!" near the San Ysidro border crossing, where tens of thousands of people enter the USA daily from Tijuana, Mexico - many on their way to work or school in San Diego.

A fundraiser President Trump is headlining Tuesday night will take place at the Beverly Park mansion of Shari and Edward Glazer, co-chairman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source familiar with security arrangements for the event. Glazer is also president of First Allied Corp., the family's real estate company.

The visit comes as Trump and his administration have voiced increasing anger at California's refusal to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

The video ends with Trump grinning, two thumbs up, as he's posing for a picture with border agents and Homeland Security officials.

Trump also responded to a question regarding the criticism his border wall has received from California Gov. The president says the state's sanctuary policies are putting the country at risk.

Protests are also planned across the border in Tijuana, Mexico, as Trump examines the 30-foot-tall prototypes created to fulfill his signature campaign promise.

He renewed complaints that Los Angeles, San Francisco and other major cities are providing protection for illegal immigrants who have committed crimes.

Trump lost the state to Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump is expected to spend the night in the Los Angeles area before heading to the St. Louis area on Wednesday.

"The round piece that you see up here or you see more clearly back there", the president said, pointing at various models, "the larger it is, the better it is - because it's very hard to get over the top".

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

"These policies release unsafe criminal offenders to prey on innocent people, and nullify the federal law", the president said. 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.
