PolitiFact California: No, Mr. President, California Is Not 'Begging' For A Wall

The spelling distinction was all Trump had to remember when he tweeted about his visit to a Marine installation outside San Diego on Tuesday.

"Trump's statements today in San Diego demonstrate his racist misconceptions that drive this anti-immigrant, anti-environment campaign for a multi-billion dollar border wall".

There have been growing tensions between Trump's administration and the State over certain of his immigration policies. Hundreds of people participated in scattered rallies on both sides of the border dividing San Diego from Tijuana, Mexico.

James O'Loughlin, the project manager, walked Trump through the line of mini-walls, explaining details of the various sections erected for review.

"On the Mexican side, federal police had to persuade around 50 demonstrators not to burn a yellow-haired pinata in Trump's likeness".

President Trump saw just what he wanted to see on his first visit to California as president on Tuesday - physical evidence of the "big, lovely 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.

Josh McCutchen, a YouTube comedian, was live-streaming the protest to his YouTube channel, and wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat.

Becerra told the Los Angeles Times in September 2017 that he supports "doing what our experts tell us we should do" on border security, whether that includes a physical barrier, more troops on the ground or virtual enforcement through aerial detection or surveillance.

Wall or no wall, the Border Patrol estimates that it stops 81 percent of illegal crossings by detaining people or getting them to turn around. A few dozen were near the wall site when he arrived, one holding a sign saying, "No Wall, No Hate, No Trump".

"I think for our guys, the fact that he was there.he really didn't even have to say anything", Shigg said on "Fox and Friends".

Auxiliary Bishop J. Arturo Cepeda of Detroit, who also was present during the Holy Land visit, said a wall prevents people from "seeing the other as a human person".

Employers who violate these provisions are subject to civil penalties of $2,000 to $5,000 for a first violation, and $5,000 to $10,000 for each subsequent violation. His inspection on Tuesday, of the prototypes made of concrete, steel and other materials marks his first visit to California since assuming office, Xinhua news agency reported.

"After you've examined your wall prototypes on the border", he added, "I invite you to head north to the Central Valley - the heart of California".

Following the visit to the prototypes, the President returned to Marine Air Station Miramar to give an address to the military.

Kevin Faulconer said a popular cross-border airport terminal connecting San Diego and Tijuana shows that "building bridges has worked wonders".

His insistence that Mexico pay has gained no traction. Renegotiations over the deal began last summer.

Individual acts of resistance to the Trump administration's lies deserve praise - especially when they involve taking personal risks. The sentiment has been reciprocated by California officials, including state attorney general Xavier Becerra, who has so far sued the Trump Administration 28 times over various issues, from immigration to health care.

San Diego's City Council past year passed a resolution opposing Trump's proposed wall.
