SAN DIEGO (AP) - Rallies for and against Donald Trump's "big beautiful border wall" with Mexico are expected to mark his first visit to California as president amid growing tensions between his administration and the state over immigration enforcement.
On Tuesday, Trump will visit eight towering prototypes of his planned wall before addressing Marines in San Diego and attending a fund-raiser in Beverly Hills.
Protests are also planned across the border in Tijuana, Mexico, when Trump visits the wall prototypes built along the international border to fulfill his signature campaign promise. Trump has insisted Mexico pay for the wall but Mexico has adamantly refused to consider the idea.
Trump's visit comes just days after his Justice Department sued to block California laws designed to protect people living in the U.S. illegally.
