Border wall supporters and counter-protestors got into wild brawl that included American flags during a pro-wall rally in Otay Mesa, California.
The incident began when small group of counter-protestors started to chant “Racists go home!” notes KFMB.
The first shove was reportedly by a counter-protester while a wall supporter allegedly threw the first punch.
That fight spurred spawned several other brawls, which were allowed to continue for more than a minute until deputies and officers in riot gear moved in.
The pro-wall rally was sponsored by San Diegans for Secure Borders, Unite America First, Frontline America, San Diego Patriots, Latinos for Trump, Make America Great PAC and other pro-border wall groups.
Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter of California spoke at the rally for the anti-immigrant demonstrators:
The border fence that we have here in San Diego is the only border fence in the entire country. You had crime reduced by 50 percent overnight and drugs reduced in San Diego by over 90 percent. Fences make good neighbors. Period.
You don’t have national security unless you have border security. It’s very simple… Yemenis, Iraqis, Pakistanis, Chinese, name your former Soviet satellite states, they all come in through Mexico. They don’t come in on cruise ships, they don’t come in through the airports, they come across the border here and that’s what the wall stops and that’s why we need the wall.
I’ll tell you, Trump is doing what he said he would do and he’s being undermined by his owned Department of Justice, he’s being undermined by his own FBI, he’s being undermined by his own Border Patrol managers that are still the same guys that Obama put into place, but he’s fighting all of that and he’s doing what he said he was going to do.
