Trump wants a 'see-through' border wall

Hundreds of immigration activists clergy members and others participate in a protest against Trump's immigration policies in front of the Federal Building in New York

President Donald Trump has eagerly inspected prototypes on display in California for his "big lovely border wall" amid peaceful protests but growing tensions between his administration and the state over immigration enforcement.

During his visit, the president reiterated the importance he granted to that work, one of his main promises during his campaign, because if the wall is not built, 'we will not have a country, ' he said.

Trump went on to tout his long-promised border wall, hours after he toured prototypes in Otay Mesa.

Donald Trump is determined at keeping those who are not legal American citizens from entering the country unless they do it the correct way. Building a wall along the border with Mexico was a central campaign issue for Trump, who said the wall will help fight drug trafficking and unauthorized immigration.

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.

USA and Mexican authorities appeared to be collaborating closely on security measures before the president's visit.

Meanwhile, anti-Trump protesters gathered near the Plaza Las Americas mall in San Ysidro with signs including "love has no borders" and "no hate in the Golden State".

San Diego's City Council past year passed a resolution opposing Trump's proposed wall. Jerry Brown, its immigrant protections and the state's tax system.

It was something that Donald Trump always said he would do if he became president of the United States, and it looks like it is finally going to happen.

Pro- and anti-Trump demonstrations were planned later in the day in Los Angeles for the president's arrival there.

Mr Trump has asked the US Congress for $18 billion to build the structure, but the funding has become ensnared in controversy over a host of immigration restrictions he and Republicans have proposed.

On his way to the viewing, Mr Trump tweeted: "California's sanctuary policies are illegal and unconstitutional and put the safety and security of our entire nation at risk".

"Sanctuary cities are protecting a terrible group of people", he said, renewing his complaints Los Angeles, San Francisco and other major cities are providing protection for illegal immigrants who have committed crimes.

The visit comes amid increasing tensions between the Trump administration and the left-leaning state over differing views on immigration. "THIS MUST STOP!" he wrote.

Several groups are planning peaceful protests on the Mexican side, but a Federal Police official said they are not going to be allowed near the prototype area.

Given the timing, it's hard to believe statements by White House staff that Trump's visit is not a political move. He traveled to Laredo - one of Texas' safest cities - weeks after declaring his candidacy.

Jeff Schwilk, Founder of San Diegans for Secure Borders, told Breitbart News Tonight on Monday evening: "We know we had to come out and show support for President Trump, because we represent the majority, not these paid activists and radical freaks that run around doing their radical protests".

"I'll take you to East L.A. and Boyle Heights, " he said. And while some critics have organized rallies elsewhere to avoid a clash, counter-protesters are anticipated to make an appearance as well.

"It's not good", said Mauricio Villlegas, 37, glancing toward the fence and prototype walls as he passed through on his way to a job at a veterinary office. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, D-San Diego, and ACLU and labor leaders. "It's something that he's going to continue to push for".

"You see, in California we are focusing on bridges, not walls", Brown said in a letter sent to Trump.
