Mexico finds Trump's border wall tour offensive

Rallying point on both sides

Mexico is not appreciating President Trump's plan to build a wall on its border with the United States.

Chapman said Trump's claim that the wall would be "99%" effective "is enough to make a lizard laugh".

Viewing the eight prototypes, Trump said he'd prefer a see-through wall.

Border Patrol agents have told The Washington Times that the wall prototypes are chiefly for testing purposes, and they will help craft future fencing - though none are likely to become the new standard.

One of the protests took place on the east side of the neighborhood of Otay Mesa, near the wall prototypes and not far from the border. "They're incredible climbers. They can't climb some of these walls", Trump said of immigrants.

"We're fighting the cartels and we are fighting them hard, nobody fought them like we fought them".

"There are certain areas where they are really wanting us to build a wall because people are complaining, people are pouring in".

Even as he toured the site Tuesday, his re-election campaign sent out an alert to supporters asking them to sign a petition demanding the wall be built.

Trump called on Congress to approve funding for the wall while at the same time halting federal grants to cities with sanctuary policies.

TIME: Trump Inspects Border Wall Prototypes As Protests Erupt - "President Donald Trump on Tuesday eagerly inspected prototypes on display in California for his "big lovely border wall" amid peaceful protests but growing tensions between his administration and the state over immigration enforcement". U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, whom Trump attacked during his 2016 campaign, said in an initial ruling last month that the administration had legal authority to proceed with the project.

The issue has led to heightened tensions between California and the Trump administration. "The criminals take refuge in these sanctuary cities and it's very unsafe for our police and enforcement folks". "THIS MUST STOP", he added.

The wall is expected to cost between $18 and $22 billion dollars.

The president disembarked from the plane and walked directly to Marine One, the helicopter that whisked the presidential entourage to Brown Field near the US-Mexico border. Brown also accused Sessions of lying about California's immigration laws, saying, "And like so many in the Trump administration, this attorney general has no regard for the truth".

Brown tweeted in response to Trump's Twitter account: "Thanks for the shout-out, @realDonaldTrump".

First-generation immigrants are more costly to governments, mainly at the state and local levels, than are native-born Americans, in large part because of the cost of educating their children, the report found.

The president's overnight trip to California, coming later in his term than for any White House occupant since Franklin D. Roosevelt, was brief in duration but long on symbolism as Trump personally confronted the blue state he has clashed with most. "What he said earlier today is not true, it is a lie". He wound up losing to Hillary Clinton in the state by 4.3 million votes, leading to a loss in the nationwide popular vote that Trump often laments. "California added nearly 3 million jobs since the recovery began", Brown wrote.
