White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed Wednesday that President Donald Trump will visit California next Tuesday.

Trump is expected to visit prototypes for his proposed wall along the US-Mexico border. Four separate companies built prototypes for the Department of Homeland Security’s consideration. The president has consistently vowed he will not sign a permanent DACA fix into law if it does not contain full funding for the border wall.

The president will also attend a Republican party fundraiser in California. The trip will mark his first visit to California since entering the White House. Trump’s visit also comes on the heels of his administration’s decision to sue the state of California for its laws classifying it as a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants.

California lawmakers, including Governor Jerry Brown and Senator Kamala Harris, have been especially critical of the lawsuit, which will likely be a point of controversy during his visit.
