No way to gauge Trump's border wall promises

  • U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at a campaign rally at Atlantic Aviation in Moon Township Pa. Saturday

Trump and the Department of Justice said that California was "obstructing federal immigration enforcement efforts" and filed the lawsuit.

But James Schwab, who quit his job as regional spokesman for the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement department, said he believed the number was much lower.

"They shield criminals", Trump said of the policies.

As reported by the Los Angeles Times, it was his first visit to the state since taking office past year.

Jerry Brown has "done a very poor job running California", slamming the Democrat for immigration and tax policy.

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

Trump's visit comes days after his Justice Department sued to block California laws created to protect people living in the US illegally.

Trump went to the border site Tuesday, just after landing in San Diego.

"When some people look at the U.S. -Mexico border, they see division", Faulconer said in his State of the City address in 2017.

"You see, in California we are focusing on bridges, not walls", Brown said in the letter, in which he also noted that past presidents have used their inaugural visits to the state to celebrate its diversity.

THE FACTS: Trump made a similar claim last month on Twitter but has yet to say who in California wants the wall. But Sanders said Trump has a base of support in the state.

A fundraiser President Trump is headlining Tuesday night will take place at the Beverly Park mansion of Shari and Edward Glazer, co-chairman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source familiar with security arrangements for the event.

He'll be staying there overnight. He crosses the border from Mexico daily to work at a San Diego restaurant.

California has been at the forefront of resistance to the Republican leader's anti-immigration agenda and at odds with his stance on a number of other issues, from gun control to marijuana and the environment.

BJP, JD(U) fight prestige battle in UP, Bihar Lok Sabha bypolls today
The ruling JD (U)-BJP combine and the Opposition RJD-Congress alliance were locked in a battle on the three seats. The Araria constituency witnessed 56% on Sunday, while in Jehanabad and Bhabua it was 50% and 54% respectively.

Indeed, Trump's maiden presidential visit to California is largely focused on the immigration matter.

Sessions claimed several California's laws are unconstitutional and a "plain violation of common sense".

Benjamin Bryon Davis said "Pretty sure a 'see-through wall" is called a fence.

Ahead of his arrival, the president tweeted that "thousands of unsafe, violent criminal aliens are released" as a result of California's immigration sanctuary policies.

Trump told reporters then that he was putting himself "in great danger" by coming to the border. "THIS MUST STOP!" he wrote. His visit is only expected to last one night. He traveled to Laredo - one of Texas' safest cities - weeks after declaring his candidacy. His administration has requested US$18 billion that would build about 480 kilometres (300 miles) of new barrier where none exist and would replace older sections of fencing.

Jeff Schwilk, founder of San Diegans for Secure Borders, whose group participated in a rally in December near the prototypes that ended in clashes with counterprotesters, said the council's resolution does not reflect the views of many residents, who feel the border is not secure.
