  • Hundreds of immigration activists clergy members and others participate in a protest against Trump's immigration policies in front of the Federal Building in New York

Demonstrations have been called against US President Donald Trump who is on his first visit to California as president to inspect prototypes for his controversial wall along the border with Mexico.

- President Donald Trump will be met with protesters when he makes his first visit as president to the Los Angeles area on Tuesday, and police said they are prepared to respond to any troubles.

The visit comes amid growing tensions between the administration and state over immigration enforcement.

The president has criticized California's so-called "sanctuary state" policies, and has even floated the idea of removing federal agents as the state continues to obstruct his "America first" agenda. Exactly how Trump plans to get to the fundraiser remains under wraps as is usual for the U.S. Secret Service.

The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against the state, claiming three recently passed state laws are deliberately interfering with federal immigration enforcement. A women's rights group, Women's Right San Diego, will also be there. Some held signs, including one that read: "No hate in the Golden State".

Gomez sponsored the resolution opposing the wall, calling it detrimental to the city's environment and tourism.

President Trump will travel to California for the first time since being elected.

"When some people look at the U.S. -Mexico border, they see division", Faulconer said in his state of the city address in 2017. The group has been active in protesting Trump's policies. He said his organization respects free speech and hopes Tuesday's rally will be safe for participants.

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.
