A meeting to honor victims of crimes allegedly committed by illegal immigrants sparked a counter protest at California’s Laguna Beach on Sunday.

Supporters of the ‘America First!’ rally numbered an estimated 20 people.

Outnumbering them by some distance were more than 2,000 counter protesters, reports the LA Times, who showed up in opposition to the meeting.

“Immigrants help make America great” and “Dump Trump” were amongst the signs being carried by the counter protestors, which included members of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Laguna Beach police reported two arrests at the meeting, which saw a heavy police presence at the famous boardwalk, including mounted police.
