A group of Trump supporters, including San Diegans for Secure Borders, San Diego Patriots and the Remembrance Project, is organizing a rally at 10 a.m. near the border wall prototypes at 10200 Enrico Fermi Dr.
Original Post at 9:17 am: Sacramento, CA - Ahead of President Donald Trump's first visit to California since his election, Governor Jerry Brown is inviting him to visit communities like Madera and Fresno.
He referenced President George W. Bush, who, according to Brown said, "For decades, California has been the place where the future happens first. Your continuing success is essential to the success of our national economy".
"We absolutely want President Trump to feel welcome and to come inspect the prototypes so we can get the wall built", he said.
The President's trip comes as the war of words between the White House and statewide leaders rapidly escalates; with the Commander-in-Chief blasting the Golden State's flat-out refusal to cooperate with federal guidelines regarding illegal immigration.
Reminding the president of the state's creation of nearly 3 million jobs since the recession, Brown wrote that "our prosperity is not built on isolation".More news: Bills Trade LT Cordy Glenn To The Bengals

He said that California's "prosperity is not built on isolation". "California thrives because we welcome immigrants and innovators from across the globe".
Brown insists California is making America great because it's "focusing on bridges, not walls".
"You have lamented that "we don't have one fast train" in our country".
"After you've examined your wall prototypes on the border, I invite you to head north to the Central Valley - the heart of California". The first, scheduled for 11 a.m.at Chicano Park, is organized by several activist groups, including Alliance San Diego, the San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium, American Friends Service Committee and Unite Here Local 30, a union representing hotel workers.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who has sued the Trump administration more than two dozen times within the past year, said he hopes the president will take away lessons about the state's economic prowess, its strict gun laws and its environmental focus from his visit. "Under this premise we will continue working constructively on the bilateral relationship with the United States".
