The visit will be Trump's first as president to California, a state with which his administration has clashed on issues of border security and immigration.

(L to R) Alliance San Diego Associate Director Christopher Wilson, San Diego City Councilwoman Georgette Gomez and U.S. Rep. Juan Vargas speak at a rally opposing President Donald Trump's visit to San Diego.

The visit comes amid growing tensions between the administration and state over immigration enforcement. Dianne Feinstein's comment that a federal lawsuit against the state is an attempt to score points with Trump's base. A women's rights group, Women's Right San Diego, will also be there.

Several dozen activists held a press conference Monday at San Diego's Chicano Park to call on people to come out and peacefully protest the project. They hate armed guards, but they walk around with people with guns.

"When you look at what a wall will do in allowing us to apprehend the vast majority of those individuals that are coming across the border, it will cut down on how much the taxpayer burden will be, which then will go straight into funding the wall", Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told Fox News. "We don't have the wall, we're never going to solve this problem..."

Trump has not visited California since he was sworn into office. The federal Justice Department recently filed a lawsuit over sanctuary city legislation, and California has filed a suit at the federal government over plans to expedite construction of the border wall.

Multiple protests are planned for Trump's visit in San Diego, including a protest Tuesday afternoon by the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties, which U.S. Senate candidate Kevin de Leon was expected to attend. He said his organization respects free speech and hopes Tuesday's rally will be safe for participants.

Eight prototypes of a border wall were completed October 26 near the Mexican border.

During the presidential election campaign, Mr Trump's supporters cheered when he loudly promised a barrier along the 3,200km US-Mexico frontier to keep out drug smugglers and undocumented immigrants.

If Trump's proposed $18-billion border wall curbed illegal border crossings by just 12 percent over the next decade, the structure would pay for itself through fiscal savings from welfare, public education, and tax refunds given to illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America, reports by the Center for Immigration Studies show.

"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.

Trump's visit comes just days after his Justice Department sued to block California laws created to protect people living in the U.S. illegally and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions followed up with a speech in Sacramento that was immediately denounced by Brown, who said the Trump administration was "full of liars".

"In California, we are focusing on building bridges, not walls", Brown wrote, sharing with the president the motto that he often uses to differentiate his policies from Trump's.
