President Trump Inspect Border Wall Prototypes; Prefers See-Through Option



Trump pictured inspecting border wall prototypes in San Diego Tuesday.

"We absolutely want President Trump to feel welcome and to come inspect the prototypes so we can get the wall built", he said.

This visit to California comes just one week after the Trump administration chose to sue the state of California over immigration laws, as reported by the New York Times.

"The state of California is begging us to build walls in certain areas", Trump said, claiming people don't talk about that.

He further slammed the Democrat for immigration and tax policy adding that while he thought Brown was a "nice guy" but "has not done the job".

Trump has asked the US Congress for US$18 billion (S$23 billion) to build the structure, but the funding has become ensnared in controversy over a host of immigration restrictions he and Republicans have proposed.

Trump also says that "very soon we're going to Mars", and that that wouldn't be happening if his 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton, had won. "No wall!" near the San Ysidro border crossing, where tens of thousands of people enter the US daily from Tijuana, Mexico, many on their way to work or school in San Diego.

Official details of Trump's first visit to California since being elected have been scant.

Trump's visit comes after Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week sued California over three of its so-called sanctuary laws.

There are eight border wall designs.

Each prototype Trump viewed Tuesday cost $486,000, DHS said, and the winning bidders on the project are to be selected around June 1.

The Trump administration seemed stuck on the idea of banning legal immigration as well - in the form of family-based migration and the diversity lottery - and all the bills put forward for a vote in the Senate failed. "The criminals take refuge in these sanctuary cities".

On the other side of the border, in Tijuana, Mexico, residents laughed off the idea the monolithic slabs will stop desperate immigrants.

In a briefing Monday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump will address all five branches of the military.

Ahead of his arrival, the president tweeted that "thousands of risky, violent criminal aliens are released" as a result of California's immigration sanctuary policies. State Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, D-San Diego, and ACLU and labor leaders appeared at Our Lady of Mount Carmel at noon.

"You see, in California we are focusing on bridges, not walls", Brown wrote.

Trump is expected to spend the night in the Los Angeles area before heading to the St. Louis area on Wednesday.

He said he had a "great relationship" with President Enrique Peña Nieto - though he has said his country will not pay for a wall - and "we are trying to work things out".

"It's not good", said Mauricio Villegas, 37, glancing toward the fence and prototype walls as he passed through on his way to a job at a veterinary office.
