Protests are also planned across the border in Tijuana, Mexico, when Trump visits the wall prototypes built along the worldwide border to fulfill his signature campaign promise.
Also at the site, awaiting him in contrasting silence, are the roughly 30-foot mockups the Department of Homeland Security picked to give a closer look - four of which are solid concrete, while the other four are built of "other materials", including steel.
Demonstrators draped themselves in USA flags and waved placards emblazoned with slogans such as "Humpty Trumpty will fall off his wall", "Resist unstable idiot", and "No hate in the Golden State". Such decision represented a victory for Trump, but it did not mean the construction would start immediately, because Congress still has to authorize or allocate funds to begin the project. It is his first visit as president to the state of California. "No wall!" Protests were also held on the Mexican side, in Tijuana.
The wall prototypes were constructed pursuant to an Executive Order issued on President Trump's fifth day in office. They carried signs supporting the wall and opposing California's "sanctuary state" laws.

On Monday, members of U.S. and Mexican agencies gathered at the Federal Police command centre near Tijuana's A.L. Rodriguez International Airport to make final arrangements.
Trump told reporters then that he was putting himself "in great danger" by coming to the border.
Not long after Trump touched down in San Diego just before noon, swarms of demonstrators rallying against his administration and his supporters were already out in full force - divided by a row of uniformed officers holding onto batons.
Jeff Schwilk, founder of San Diegans for Secure Borders, whose group participated in a rally in December near the prototypes that ended in clashes with counter-protesters, said the council's resolution does not reflect the views of many residents who feel the border is not secure.
"The president campaigned on this, he talked about it extensively, and he's the president, and this is something that he is not going to back away from", she said. Jerry Brown, saying the Democrat has done a "terrible" job running the state, leading to exorbitant taxes and sanctuary cities that protect criminals. "It's something that he's going to continue to push for".
