OTAY MESA, California — President Donald Trump arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border early Tuesday afternoon to inspect the eight prototypes for the border wall he promised to build.
Later, in a press briefing, flanked by members of federal law enforcement agencies, President Trump promised that the wall would save lives and money “by reducing crime, drug flow, welfare fraud, and burdens on schools and hospitals.”
Several hundred pro-Trump, pro-border wall protesters gathered near the Border Patrol station, waving Gadsden flags and Trump campaign banners.
Ben Bergquam, co-founder of www.FightSanctuaryState.com, told Breitbart News: “I am excited for President Trump to visit the wall prototypes.
Jeff Schwilk, Founder of San Diegans for Secure Borders, told Breitbart News Tonight on Monday evening: “We know we had to come out and show support for President Trump, because we represent the majority, not these paid activists and radical freaks that run around doing their radical protests.
