Fresh from San Diego where he visited prototypes for his border wall, President Trump dropped into Los Angeles on Tuesday, sheltered within a bubble of security and secrecy usually reserved for chief executives' surprise visits to unsafe foreign nations. Trump made his first visit to California as president yesterday.
"They have the highest taxes in the United States", Trump said. "You have sanctuary cities where you have criminals living in the sanctuary cities". Brown enjoys a 53% approval rating (only 28% disapprove, according to a December poll from the Public Policy Institute of California) while according to Real Clear Politics, Trump's average disapproval rating stands at almost 54%.
Astoundingly, after this was enacted, Thomas D. Homan, the acting director of United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said that the state elected officials who support the policy should be arrested.
"We are not going to embrace his divisive politics", Payne said.

Also in anticipation of Trump's visit, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat, is scheduled to hold a conference call with reporters on Monday to talk about what he thinks should be the focus of the president's visit. Both the barriers and local law enforcement are ready for an afternoon inspection by the president, who likely will be pleased with what could become his proverbial "big, lovely wall".
"A part of San Diego needs a wall, they want a wall very desperately", Trump said.
The Department of Homeland Security has not yet developed an effective way to measure precisely how effective walls are at countering illegal immigration, but previous examples of border barriers have proven to work where they have been built.
At issue in the lawsuit are three California laws that effectively protect undocumented immigrants from deportation. Many Californian politicians and regular citizens alike feel that their values are under attack by the Trump Administration, and they take as many opportunities as possible to protest.
"He said: "[The President] actually tweeted on the plane that this wall would pay for itself by cutting crime - well, he's not got Congress or Mexico yet to pay for it so it might be handy if it pays for itself. And California remains the 6th largest economy in the world and the most prosperous state in America. Trump recently called the mayor of Oakland a "disgrace" for warning immigrants before federal immigration agents initiated raids in the city.
"But bridges are still better than walls", Brown wrote.
