Trump Inspects Border Wall Prototypes in California as Protests Erupt: President Donald Trump on Tuesday eagerly inspected prototypes on display in California for his “big beautiful border wall” amid peaceful protests but growing tensions between his administration and the state over immigration enforcement.

Chanting “No ban! No wall!” demonstrators were cheered on by honking cars and buses at the San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego, the nation’s busiest border crossing.Trump appeared engaged as he was briefed on eight towering prototypes, including one with blue steel on top. He said he liked a fully concrete wall because it was the hardest to climb, but he noted that it needs see-through capability. He said certain parts of California are desperate for a wall to break the flow of illegal immigration. “If you didn’t have walls over here, you wouldn’t even have a country,” Trump said.  The visit — Trump’s first to the state as president — coincided with an escalating battle between his administration and the liberal state, which Democrat Hillary Clinton easily carried in the 2016 presidential election. California officials have defiantly refused to help federal agents detain and deport immigrants in the U.S. illegally, and the Justice Department sued the state last week over three of its immigration laws.
