SACRAMENTO, CA - Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) criticized President Donald Trump's visit to San Diego as an opportunity to advance the president's divisive and racist border wall, rather than addressing real problems the region faces. "Specifically our needs around trade in our region that help grow jobs, and of course our ongoing cross-border pollution problems that impact so many of our communities, like those in Imperial Beach and Coronado," Gloria said, "If he took just a fraction of the money that he was going to spend on this wall and instead used it to clean up our Tijuana River Valley, millions of lives could be improved and the quality of life in our region would be better." Hear Gloria's full response to Trump's first visit to California since taking office.
