March 12, 2018 (San Diego) -- President Donald Trump is coming to San Diego this Tuesday to view eight border wall prototypes. Multiple groups are planning protests over the President’’s hard-line stance on immigration, the border wall, and other issues.
The San Diego Union Tribune suggested that Congressman Duncan Hunter may accompany the President on his trip to the border wall prototypes.
Trump’s visit comes on the heels of his administration filing a lawsuit against California over sanctuary state statutes to protect some undocumented immigrants.
Regarding the lawsuit filed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Governor Jerry Brown said “This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy. It’s not wise, it’s not right, and it will not stand.”
But Trump says “The State of California is sheltering dangerous criminals in a brazen and lawless attack on our constitutional system of government,” reports The Star. He also accused California legislators of being “in open defiance of federal law.”
San Diego Free Press reports five protests planned to coincide with Trump's visit here on Tuesday.
The San Diego Organizing Project is planning a Press Conference and Rally titled: Interfaith leaders and elected officials to urge Trump to build bridges not walls in San Diego visit tomorrow at noon at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, 2020 Alaquinas Drive, San Ysidro.
After his visit to San Diego, Trump will also attend a Republican fundraiser in Beverly Hills, where additional protests are planned.
