President Trump will travel to the "Sanctuary State" of California Tuesday; visiting the USA border with Mexico and inspecting various prototypes of his proposed wall while meeting with law enforcement officials in San Diego and Los Angeles.

California was a frequent stop for Trump during his campaign - more so during the primary phase than the general election, when Trump focused on more likely targets.

"We don't need his racist walls", Pedro Rios, director of the American Friends Service Committee's U.S. -Mexico border program, said at a news conference in Barrio Logan's Chicano Park. Here in cities like Fresno and Madera more than a dozen bridges and viaducts are being built for the nation's first and only High-Speed Rail line. The governor says California is focusing on bridges, not walls, and adds that the project has put 1,700 people to work. Like many Republicans, Trump's main interest in California was financial: the state is home to many high-dollar conservative donors.

Trump heads to San Diego Tuesday to inspect prototypes for a wall on the Southern border.
