President Trump to Visit San Diego

President Donald Trump left Washington, D.C. en route to San Diego before most San Diegans were awake Tuesday and is expected to arrive around noon.  It will be a brief visit by the president, only lasting three or four hours, and the agenda is full.  Man Who Punched SDPD Officer Ordered to Stand Trial Once here, he will tour the prototypes built for his proposed border wall in the area near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry along the U.S.-Mexico border and speak to U.S. Marines at MCAS Miramar.  Before the afternoon commute begins, the president should be on his way to Los Angeles International Airport where he's expected to continue on to Santa Monica to participate in a roundtable with members of the Republican National Committee.

Last week, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions claimed California's law declaring itself a sanctuary state harms agents. The U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit challenging laws in California that are considered some of the most generous protections in the nation for immigrants facing deportation. On Feb. 27, the Trump administration prevailed in a federal lawsuit brought by the state of California and advocacy groups that was aimed at halting the construction of a proposed border wall south of San Diego. The lawsuit had argued that the administration overreached by waiving laws requiring environmental and other reviews before construction can begin.
