    I welcome him to my state. San Diego has been begging for walls, as well as part other parts of California border for years. I remember driving down to Via de Ysidro exit before going partying in TJ as a college kid. We sat in our car, near the strip malls of outlet stores watching illegal aliens hop the shitty sheet metal wall. There were dozens and dozens of them on a Friday night in an hour's time.

    It would be amazing if we could stop the flow that costs Californians an estimated $10 Billion a year in Medical, Law Enforcement, Education, and Infrastructure costs each year. Walls work, if they didn't, then why not tear down the one we have right now. Why lock the doors to your houses each night? They say it stopped over 90% of the flow, before they built the current crappy one out of excess sheet metal from Camp Pendleton.

    Get us that wall Orange Ogre!

    How is he "trashing California"? If this is true, I need to know as a citizen. I think he is pulling a Clinton / Obama and coming to raise a shit ton of $ at a $35K+ a person event.

    Something Trump does not seem to understand, given his threats of being petty and punitive towards California.

    well, start with the fact that his justice department is suing California. Then, there's the local papers view of Trump.

    Who exactly in San Diego has been begging for a wall, their republican Mayor?

    He was right down the road from Imperial Beach, where the beaches were closed again due to sewage run off from Tijuana.



    The problem with focusing on Trump's pipe dream of a wall is that real border problems that can actually be solved are being ignored.


    The Tijuana River, for instance, which crosses the international border before reaching the ocean on the U.S. side, is said to be one of the most polluted waterways in the world. Untreated sewage flows from Mexico into the river valley, fouling the estuary, beaches and surf all the way up to Imperial Beach. For a huge chunk of the year, the water is too polluted to swim in.


    As I chatted with Partlow, I learned that he is the founder of one of several environmental groups fighting to get the U.S. and Mexico to fix the mess. His group has the catchiest name: Stop the Poop. He took me into the Tijuana River Valley to show me how awful the problem is.


    A few miles west of Otay Mesa, we visited Smuggler's Gulch and Goat Canyon, just north of the border fence. Both are the site of catch basins that are fetid pools of muck. An expensive wastewater treatment plant was built on the U.S. side to handle Tijuana wastewater in the late 1990s, but the sewage spills have continued unabated.


    Partlow said he was not politically engaged until one particularly disgusting day in February 2017, when he went to the beach to bodysurf and was overcome by the smell of poop. "I couldn't breathe," he said. "Couldn't even get close to the water."
    A massive spill had sent 143 million gallons of raw sewage into the Tijuana River, which forced the closure of beaches from the border all the way up to Coronado.


    Last week, the Trump administration filed a lawsuit against California, challenging the constitutionality of laws designed to protect immigrants.


    A week earlier, a group of California officials sued the federal government. In their complaint, representatives from Imperial Beach, Chula Vista and the Port of San Diego allege the feds have violated the Clean Water Act by failing to take effective action against the water pollution that has ruined our state's southernmost beaches.


    The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that the local Border Patrol union has also considered suing after some of its officers experienced respiratory problems and infections it blames on the toxic runoff. One former Border Patrol officer, Joshua Willey, said last week that he'd nearly lost his arm in 2010 after contracting an infection caused by flesh-eating bacteria in the water off Coronado during a training exercise.


    Don't count on any intervention from Trump. Dealing with stinky sewage and toxic sludge may be critical to human health. It just doesn't excite his base.
    If Trump really wants to fix our border problems, he should visit the sewage pools, not his silly walls

    It bothers me that here's a problem that could be fixed and there's no desire to do it. Maybe the lawsuit will get his attention.

    this guy is a Republican too.
    When President Donald Trump lands in San Diego for his first trip to California since taking office, he will find a city with a tremendous story to tell on international trade, border infrastructure and public safety.

    The president is only expected to be here for a few hours. If he stayed longer, he would see that in San Diego a strong local economy and free trade aren’t a contradiction but a way of life.

    He would see firsthand how a major American city benefits from having not just a modern border crossing but also a working relationship with Mexico. San Diego is living proof that a healthy economy, low unemployment rate and strong international ties are not mutually exclusive.

    He would hear that San Diego’s international ports of entry — including the largest land border crossing in the world — are an economic engine that thousands of businesses and residents rely on. From life sciences to manufacturing, San Diego’s economy depends on federal policies that encourage the cross-border exchange of goods and ideas.

    Yeah, I guess you missed all the protesters in SD mocking him for his stupid wall.

    And again, you seem to not know much about immigration or economic policy.
