Demonstrators gather for Trump's San Diego visit

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at a campaign rally at Atlantic Aviation in Moon Township Pa. Saturday

"I think Governor Brown has done a very poor job running California", Trump told reporters after touring border wall prototypes in Otay Mesa on Tuesday.

Organizers of Women's March San Diego plan to be at the protest site with a large sign urging Trump to "build bridges, not walls" in anticipation that he will fly by helicopter to the prototype site.

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. While viewing the designs, Trump said he has a strong preference for a border wall that would allow law enforcement to see through into Mexico. He said he preferred a fully concrete wall because it was the hardest to climb, but he noted that it needed to be see-through.

He was also briefed by Jim O'Louhghlin, an official who works with the contractors and is considered the "subject matter expert" on the wall.

Donald Trump is determined at keeping those who are not legal American citizens from entering the country unless they do it the correct way. He said illegal crossings dropped after those fences, some of which are made of scrap metal, were built.

"There are certain areas where they are really wanting us to build a wall because people are complaining, people are pouring in".

Trump also took the opportunity to call on Congress to pass a budget that includes funding for the wall. But U.S. and Mexican authorities appeared to be collaborating closely on security measures for the president's visit.

The visit comes amid increasing tensions between the Trump administration and the left-leaning state over differing views on immigration.

"We're not going to let President Trump get bullied around". The Justice Department recently sued over state laws that limit co-operation with immigration authorities, which state officials have harshly criticized.

Homan said Pelosi's comments about federal agents terrorizing immigrant communities were "beyond the pale" and challenged Feinstein to change laws if she disagreed with how they are enforced.

On Monday, Brown wrote a letter to Trump touting the strength of California's economy and attributing the success of the world's sixth-largest economy to immigrants.

Facebook is 'beast' used to stoke Rohingya violence, says UN Burma report
Yeehang Lee's comments follow the release of images by the human rights group Amnesty International. Myanmar's envoy Htin Lynn rejected Lee's remarks and called for the council to fire her.

Trump also referred to Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's recent warning to constituents of impending raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents as a "disgrace to our nation".

"The fact is, if you don't have a wall system it would be bedlam, I imagine".

US authorities moved semi-trailers between the prototypes and the Mexican border, offering a layer of protection. I said maybe we'll need a new force.

Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this spring. "In any event, we'll handle it". Several hundred pro-Trump, pro-border wall protesters gathered near the Border Patrol station, waving Gadsden flags and Trump campaign banners.

Trump's visit was greeted with peaceful protests by demonstrators both for and against his planned wall.

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

Trump is now en route to San Diego from Washington, D.C.

The visit will be Trump's first as president to California, a state with which his administration has clashed on issues of border security and immigration. "What we need is action to ensure DACA recipients and their families are safe from deportation".

Regardless, given that the president prefers ego-stroking rallies in states he won rather than actually leading all Americans, it will not be a comfortable day for Trump.

Despite the tense relationship between Trump and the Golden State, Californians in support of the "big, lovely wall" came out in force to welcome the president. Kevin Faulconer said a popular cross-border airport terminal connecting San Diego and Tijuana shows that "building bridges has worked wonders". He will also headline a Republican National Committee fundraiser in Beverly Hills, where tickets cost as much as $250,000.
