The Golden Gate chapter of the Minutemen, plus residents who support legal immigration and the enforcement of America's immigration laws outnumbered by two to one open borders advocates in dueling rallies. Pro-border enforcement supporters also came out to support federal immigration authorities, who've been under attack by the local liberal media, elected officials and groups in the Canal area who aid and abet illegal aliens.
There was at least one arrest, as a Hispanic man threw peanuts at one of the Minutemen. San Rafael Police saw the assault and chased the vehicle. According to one account, the same occupants had driven by earlier in a separate vehicle and spit at another of the Minutemen.
Another man from the Appeasement & Injustice Coalition side was confronted and pointed out to police after he was spotted taking down license plate numbers of the Minutemen and supporters.
At its peak, 85 to 90 patriots of different political persuasions were on the Minutemen side. Some had come from as far away as the East Bay and San Jose. Many were Marin residents as well. There were 45 people who stood as supporters of open borders, yelling third grade chants like "Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Racism Has Got To Go," "Racists Out of Marin," and "Minutemen Go Home."

Then, there was the socialist, pro-open borders side, seen below.
Sign at left reads "This is a Land of Immigrants, Stolen from Native Peoples and Mexico. Give It Back or At Least Let Then In." The guy holding the sign wore an "I Hate Wal Mart" T-shirt.
The man above on the right was spotted later taking down license plate numbers of Minutemen and their supporters.
The flimsy "terror" accusation was used against ICE in the two photos above.
Sign at right reads, "Who's The Illegal Alien, Pilgrim."
