SAN DIEGO — President Barack Obama made a brief stop in San Diego Thursday to attend a political fundraiser at the La Jolla home of Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs.

He greeted Marines and shook hands with members of their families, posed for photographs and spoke to San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer upon arriving at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar aboard Air Force One late Thursday morning.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi joined Obama at the $10,000-per- person lunchtime fundraiser in La Jolla to benefit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Donors who ponied up $32,400 — the maximum amount that can be given to a party committee in a calendar year under federal law — got invited to a VIP reception with a chance to have a photo taken with the nation’s chief executive.

Jacobs, whose estimated net worth is $1.6 billion, was one of the top five financial supporters of Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. He stepped down as chairman of Qualcomm — the mobile chip maker — five years ago.

The Obama administration announced new proposals this week designed to attract and retain highly skilled immigrants, among the top wishes of high-tech companies like Qualcomm. The new regulations would remove obstacles to the immigrants remaining in this country and extend employment authorization to their spouses.

Several groups rallied down the street from the Jacobs estate, some calling for the president’s impeachment, others opposing the proposed Trans- Pacific Partnership free trade deal, and environmental activists speakout out against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.

San Diego 350 contends the pipeline, which would carry oil from Canada to Texas for refining, would increase greenhouse gas emissions and worsen the impacts of climate change.

“He’s in California for three fundraisers over a couple of days and every place he’s going to go, he’s going to see we don’t want the Keystone pipeline,” Masada Disenhouse of San Diego 350 told 10News. “We want you to take leadership on climate change and I think, collectively, he will get that message.”

Obama has delayed a decision on whether to approve the pipeline project for several months.

The La Jolla fundraiser was the second of Obama’s four fundraisers in three metropolitan areas today.

Obama began his day by presiding over what The Hollywood Reporter described as an intimate “roundtable” discussion at a Beverly Hills hotel to benefit the Democratic National Committee.

Obama departed San Diego aboard Air Force One to head to San Jose, where he will participate in two fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee.
