This week Governor Schwarzenegger announced he will commit National Guard troops to help secure the border with Mexico.

The move has touched off a new round of protests on both sides.

Minutemen and their supporters rallied in front of the governor's office Saturday to demand more security.

Later on, immigrant's rights supporters rallied near the border. That was when things got heated.

Immigrants rights supporters rallied on one side of Camino de la Plaza, and members of the Minutemen on the other.

Officers had to step in when one of the members from the immigrants supporters side of the rally started to cause a commotion with a Ku Klux Clan outfit.

Although there were a lot of strong words, police said there were no other problems.
