Protesters marched and held rallies on Monday ahead of President Donald Trump's first official visit to California. Nearly 200 people marched in downtown San Diego, which is on the border with Mexico, to denounce Trump and in particular his crackdown on immigration both legal and illegal.

California is the country's most populous state and a Democratic stronghold. Trump will arrive in San Diego at 11.30 am (1930 GMT) and then go to nearby Otay Mesa to view eight prototypes for the wall he wants to build on the border with Mexico.

Ariel Norcross, demonstrating Monday outside the Federal Building, carried a placard that read "No hate in the Golden State." "I don't want him, his hateful rhetoric, his hateful administration, any of his policies in my state, in my country," said Norcross."
