CLAREMONT, Calif.—A few dozen members of a white supremacist organization have held an anti-illegal-immigration rally in the east Los Angeles County city of Claremont, where they were vastly outnumbered by counter-protestors.
Claremont Lt. Mike Ciszek said the 30 or so National Socialist Movement demonstrators rallied for an hour and a half Saturday to oppose illegal-immigrant enrollment at the nearby Claremont Colleges.
Ciszek says between 300 and 500 counterdemonstrators rallied nearby. Between 200 and 300 others held a separate peace rally in opposition to the white supremacists in a park four blocks away.
He says about 110 officers were deployed at the white supremacist rally. There were no arrests and no reported injuries or property damage.
