- San Diego on front lines in California-Trump war
By Joe Mathews - Friday Jun 16, 2017
What makes Trump’s wild swings land as punches in San Diego? Because the city is more deeply tied to the United States than California’s other big regions. [...] San Diego institutions have built ever-closer ties to Mexico, encouraging cross-border commutes, contemplating a cross-border Olympic bid, and constructing an airport terminal that spans the border with Tijuana’s airport. The president’s increased deportations have inspired fear among immigrants in the city, and his blasts against cities that don’t use police to enforce immigration laws (San Diego among them) have inspired a poisonous backlash against federal law enforcement. Trump’s antitrade policies are a challenge for the border region’s economy and his attempts to restrict travel are seen as a danger to the huge tourism industry, which attracts more than 34 million visitors a year. [...] San Diego’s middle-of-the-road politics — the county’s voters are closely split between Democrats and Republicans — makes dealing with Trump trickier than it is in California’s other, monolithically Democratic coastal cities. Faulconer is not a Trump supporter, in word or deed — he backs comprehensive immigration reform, speaks Spanish, promotes cross-border trade, and touts his city’s Climate Action Plan. [...] if the president hangs in and gains traction on his border, immigration, trade and budget policies, while delivering more money to the region’s defense industry, then steel yourself, San Diego, for very bitter fights in your very beautiful city.
