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

Noting the lofty focus and collaborative spirit of first-time visits to California from past USA presidents like Harry S. Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today sent President Donald J. Trump a letter reminding him that "in California we are focusing on bridges, not walls" and invited him to the Central Valley - where more than a dozen bridges and viaducts are being built for the nation's first and only High-Speed Rail line.

"California thrives because we welcome immigrants and innovators from across the globe", Brown says in the letter, in which he also says that "our prosperity is not built on isolation".

Standing beside the prototypes, as USA border patrol agents rode nearby on horseback, Trump discussed the merits of various designs with border officials, his chief of staff John Kelly and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Six US companies built the prototypes, most from reinforced concrete and the remainder from other material.

"You have to have see-through". A spokesman for the department said that the samples are expected to "inform future border wall design standards". Dozens of pro- and anti-wall demonstrators gathered peacefully on opposite sides of a street leading to the prototypes, with a heavy police presence separating them. The Sessions' lawsuit details the federal government's objections to these attempts to limit the harm caused by the deportation force that President Trump has unleashed.

At San Ysidro, Jose Gonzalez, 21, stopped to snap a photo of the protesters holding signs, including one that read: "Wall off Putin!" in reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has a seemingly close relationship with Trump.

The president also renewed his criticism of sanctuary jurisdictions - including those in California - saying they should be stripped of federal grant funding. "Despite the administration's continuous attempts to push through their divisive agenda, California will not abandon the values of diversity and inclusion that define who we are as a state and as a nation". Jerry Brown, for its so-called sanctuary laws. Administration officials said those laws and policiesendanger federal agents and make immigrant communities less safe.

Such tactics please Trump supporters - including some in California - who voted for him on the promise of curbing illegal immigration. In fact, these laws simply ensure that state actors comply with the U.S. Constitution and that local law enforcement's limited resources are not co-opted for federal immigration enforcement purposes except in certain circumstances.

Russia Test-fires 'Kinzhal - An 'Ideal' Hypersonic Missile
The massive twin-engine MiG-31 remains the fastest operational fighter capable of clocking a top speed close to Mach 3. Russian Federation is holding presidential elections next week, which Putin is widely believed to win.

Aside from inspecting prototypes for the wall, Trump will also address troops at Miramar air station on Tuesday. "And I think that's great", said Yoe. "We have to have a couple of disagreements before we get there". "In any event, we'll handle it".

Regardless, given that the president prefers ego-stroking rallies in states he won rather than actually leading all Americans, it will not be a comfortable day for Trump.

"People will find their way here", he said as he walked in a procession featuring placards denouncing the wall plan and children in Mexican ponchos riding on their parents' shoulders.

Customs and Border Protection picked eight proposals for construction along the San Diego border, which were finished in October and have been tested in a real-world border environment for evaluation since. The bill further directs our attorney general to promulgate model policies for local and state health, education, labor and judiciary officials to follow when they deal with immigration matters.

"The wall could pay for itself even if it only modestly reduced illegal crossings and drug smuggling", Steven A. Camarota, director of research at the Center for Immigration Studies, told the Post.

Trump will make his first visit to the city today since being elected.

Will he grasp that despite being scarred by the existing border fence, the San Diego-Tijuana region is a cohesive metropolitan area, which has created a globally competitive regional economy by working together to maximize each other's strengths? Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, D-San Diego, and ACLU and labor leaders.
