There are some people in California, as well as across the US, who are willing to break the law to keep undocumented immigrants hidden. While the frenetic activity, policy shifts and personnel changes sometime seem chaotic, these recent changes, though sudden, appeared orderly by comparison.
Air Force One landed at a marine corps air station in Miramar, outside San Diego, the Guardian reported.
Authorities held protesters in the U.S.at bay blocks away from the survey site where Trump looked at a series of potential walls, but they could not stop demonstrators in Mexico from shouting their opposition from across the border.
Having yet to secure funding from Congress for a wall, Trump said he liked that the better versions he saw also weren't the most expensive.
Trump told reporters after landing that he was putting himself "in great danger" by coming to the border.
Hiding her identity, she said, "I grew up in the time where the Holocaust was not so far behind me". In the earlier days, dozens of people would gather just south of the border and simply rush across on a daily basis.

The president was scheduled to attend a fundraiser in the Los Angeles area later Tuesday to benefit the Republican National Committee. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, and his predecessor and father.
Former Congressman Duncan Hunter, Sr., helped put the double fence back in the 1990's. Trump has frequently been the target of strongly worded messages projected onto the Washington, D.C., hotel bearing his name. "If you want to be neighbors", he says, "we're supposed to love one another". Kevin Faulconer said a popular cross-border airport terminal connecting San Diego and Tijuana shows that "building bridges has worked wonders". There's a lot of problems in Mexico, they have the cartels. "Movements like this, and other issues including the gender wage gap and protecting women's access to health care, remind us that there is still so much to be done in the fight for equality".
The reality is Trump's brand of xenophobia is toxic to what little is left of the Republican Party in California.
