Border Walls And Protests Greet Trump On First Visit To California

The president's first visit to the California border amid a contentious battle with state officials over his immigration policies was peaceful.

President Trump saw just what he wanted to see on his first visit to California as president on Tuesday - physical evidence of the "big, attractive wall" separating the United States and Mexico that was the central promise of his campaign - yet steered clear of the resistance to his presidency that has come to define the state.

The President on Tuesday showed his preference to the border wall that he promised to build in the 2016 presidential election, saying the wall should can be "see-through" and tall enough so that illegal immigration cannot climb over, reports IANS.

"For the people that say, 'No wall, ' if you didn't have walls over here, you wouldn't even have a country", Trump said, in a variation of one of his favorite lines.

"We're looking at it very, very strong".

"Sanctuary cities are protecting a terrible group of people in many cases - criminals - and what happened as an example in Oakland was a disgrace to our nation and we just can't let that happen", Trump said.

At Mexico's largest public university, experts discuss Trump's border wall tour and his threats to end the North American Free Trade Agreement. The amount is equal to administration's request to fund three sections of border wall.

At Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, Trump said sanctuary cities nullify federal law and violate the U.S. Constitution.

San Diego's mayor criticized Trump's short visit, saying the president won't get a full picture of the city.

Trump also slammed Brown for high state taxes, saying Brown "has done a very poor job running California". The issue has helped sour relations between the two leaders.

We need the public, including immigrants, to be our eyes and ears - to report when they witness a crime or are victims themselves. The Twitter message cited estimates by the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors lower levels of immigration. "When we put up the real wall, we're going to stop 99 percent, maybe more than that". "Finally we have someone who is putting America first".

People who come to our country in search of a better life for themselves and their children are more likely to follow the laws and enrich their communities.

The president's overnight trip to California, coming later in his term than for any White House occupant since Franklin D. Roosevelt, was brief in duration but long on symbolism as Trump personally confronted the blue state he has clashed with most. He will also headline a Republican National Committee fundraiser in Beverly Hills, where tickets cost as much as $250,000.

"People are so narrow-minded", said the firefighter, who voted for Trump.

Brown's government and environmental advocacy groups have sued to block construction of the wall, claiming that the administration acted illegally when it waived certain environmental rules.

"Tillerson was a moderating force in the Trump Administration's global relations with Mexico and Latin America".
