Activist San Diego would like to coordinate with you on the demonstrations to defy Trump, presumably next week, when he come to inspect his "beautiful" walls. We believe we have an opportunity to send a message to our Mexican brothers and sisters and to communities across the globe.

We have been contacted by CNN and local media and would like to connect them with your efforts as well.

Please let us know how ASD can be of assistance and how we build an ongoing united response & resistance.

Like you ASD mobilized for Trumps campaign stop at the Convention Center that turned into a police riot as well as a mobilization downtown the day after Trumps election, and played a big role in the March for Impeachment last year. We have an outreach list that reaches several thousand.


Trump to visit California next week

San Diego Union Tribune article.

President Trump, the first president since Dwight Eisenhower to skip a visit to California in his initial year in office, finally will come to the Golden State on Tuesday to inspect prototypes for his proposed southern border wall, according to an administration official.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday said Trump would visit next week. Another official, speaking on condition of anonymity to divulge internal planning, confirmed the president would spend Tuesday in the state with which he’s had the most fraught relationship.

The visit comes as the relationship between Trump and the Democratic state government has reached a new level of toxicity. Many residents consider California to be the center of resistance to Trump, and he has returned the sentiment, often criticizing the state— and suing it. The administration filed suit this week to enforce federal immigration actions.

Trump plans to visit border wall prototypes in San Diego and attend a Republican fundraiser in Beverly Hills. According to an invitation obtained by The Times, tickets range from $35,000 to $250,000.

Eisenhower made his first visit to California in February of his second year.

The last time a president waited as long as Trump has to visit the state, the chief executive was Franklin D. Roosevelt, who didn't visit California as president until roughly 2 ½ years into his first term. Back then, no president had yet done an official trip by airplane. Roosevelt came by train to visit Los Angeles and dedicate the new Hoover Dam in 1935;
