Campaigners say Trump not welcome at California-Mexico border

US President Donald Trump is set to make his first visit to California- a state that is at odds with his administration over issues ranging from immigration to guns- since taking office Facts on prototypes of Trump's border wall
| 13 March, 2018, 11:33

Activists and community groups hold a rally to condemn the visit of US President Trump to California ahead of his visit to view border wall prototypes in San Diego. "And that's the business strategy that President Trump brings to the American people".

Among those gathered at the park was Democratic U.S. Congressman Juan Vargas, whose district covers the entire California-Mexico border. Local police generally issue an advisory to the public to alert motorists about areas to avoid during presidential visits, but those details have not yet been determined. But hearing that he'll travel by helicopter from the Miramar base to the border, the organizers of Women's March San Diego announced plans to erect a large sign urging Trump to "build bridges, not walls" with the hope that he'll be able to see it while landing at the nearby prototype site.

"We don't arrest law-abiding people", Homan said.

"The president campaigned on this, he talked about it extensively and he's the president and this is something that he is not going to back away from", she said.

Speakers set to appear at the rally include gubernatorial candidate and Assemblyman Travis Allen, R-Huntington Beach, Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, author and documentarian Trevor Loudon, and former Assemblyman Tim Donnelly. He will then fly to Los Angeles, arriving at Los Angeles International Airport at 3:30 p.m., according to the White House. The location has not been disclosed. According to Politico, tickets for the event will cost up to $250,000.

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. The group has been active in protesting Trump's policies.


The incumbent attorney general, who was appointed to his position by Brown, faces an election challenge by the state's insurance commissioner, Dave Jones, who has relentlessly criticized Trump's moves to erode Obamacare. "It's not wise, it's not right, and it will not stand", Brown said.

Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, led a Monday afternoon rally in Beverly Hills in advance of Trump's visit, denouncing the president's plans for a border wall and his immigration stances.

Jerry Brown will finally step down in November, when he will be 80 years old.

"I mean, frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California, you would have a crying mess like you've never seen in California", Trump said weeks ago, warning there would be "crime like nobody has ever seen crime in this country". "And that's more than just a figure of speech".

"In California, we are focusing on building bridges, not walls", Brown wrote, sharing with the president the motto that he often uses to differentiate his policies from Trump's.

Before we look at who is in the running, let's first discuss who is not - George Clooney turned down an offer to run, as did Disney CEO Bob Iger, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and the Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti. He will be in West LA Tuesday or Wednesday night for a fundraiser.
