President Trump Outlines Need for Border Wall While Inspecting Prototypes San Diego

Trump's itinerary in the Southland has been kept mostly under wraps. The closures will last through 1 p.m. Wednesday.

"California's sanctuary policies put the entire nation at risk", Trump said.

Trump has long said he wanted to visit the models himself so he can pick a victor, though the Department of Homeland Security says elements of each design are expected to be used.

"There's a lot of problems in Mexico - they have a lot of problems over there", he said.

"I don't think it's really fair how he has the choice to separate us", said Gonzalez, a dual citizen who lives in Tijuana and crosses the border daily to work at a San Diego ramen restaurant.

"We have determined what to do", the president added.

Details of the president's travels around the Southland were not released.

This isn't Trump's first visit to the border.

The president renewed his criticism of Democratic Gov. "The LAPD will be heavily deployed throughout the city to ensure the safe transport of the president and secure locations he will be visiting". "Finally we have someone who is putting America first". "We ask all of our residents to prepare for increased traffic with the potential of temporary street closures and delays".

After viewing the wall prototypes in an area of the border heavily cordoned off and far from the rallies on the United States side, Trump was then expected to address Marines in San Diego before attending a high-dollar fundraiser in Los Angeles, where he'll stay overnight. "I will say I don't think too much about my property in California, but I have great property in California", the president said. "We're going to be looking at the prototypes, which is very important for our country".

Trump was scheduled to give a speech to members of the military later on Tuesday before heading back to Washington.

The president's visit is his first to the country's most populous state since taking office, and comes just one week after his Department of Justice announced its plan to sue California over "obstructing federal immigration enforcement efforts".

The fundraiser is being hosted by RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, national finance chairman Todd Ricketts and deputy national finance chairman Elliott Broidy, The Times reported. And on Tuesday, California Democrats in Congress sent a letter to Trump raising concerns about immigration raids and threats against state officials.

Trump tweeted about California's immigration policies as he flew to the state aboard Air Force One. "And he looks forward to being there and presenting a lot of the specific policies". He also sought to avoid protestors, who greeted Trump from the moment he landed in California. "They don't care about the kind of things that you and I care about". "In 2019, we want to give you your largest pay raise in over a decade", Trump promised. We'll go off to Chinatown, Filipinotown and Thai Town. She and other agents briefed the president on beefed-up security in California, Arizona and Texas over the years and cautioned that any changes need to preserve the ability to see what's happening on the other side.

Mr Trump also criticised California governor Jerry Brown, saying he was doing a "terrible" job. Kevin Faulconer said a popular cross-border airport terminal connecting San Diego and Tijuana shows that "building bridges has worked wonders".
