    It was a scene straight out of a political thriller.
    A massive security presence.Huge amounts of supporters.A vocal minority of protesters.

    Just another day in the campaign of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
    The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum and its environs were the site Sunday of a Trump rally, with an estimated 7,000 people crowding into the main arena to hear the presidential candidate speak.In his typical no-bull style, Trump engaged the boisterous crowd with criticisms of fellow GOP candidate Ted Cruz, Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, and a host of others."We have to make our country rich again," said Trump to cheers. "Then great again, then greater than ever before."I tell you it will happen."Trump also lobbed shots at Carrier and its plan to take 1,400 Indiana jobs to Mexico.After someone in attendance yelled, "Build a wall" referring to the country's southern border as Trump spoke, the businessman responded, "Oh, I'll build a wall. Don't you worry about it."Supporters streamed into the arena as soon as the doors opened at 12:30 p.m. Metal detectors were placed directly at the main entrance, with other security protocols noticeably visible. Police tape ringed the facility on Coliseum Boulevard and Parnell Avenue, with Fort Wayne Police Department and Allen County Sheriff officers standing guard at various entries as well as lined up parallel to the street in some places.A contingent of protesters numbering around 100 people made their presence known on Parnell Street, waving signs and flags showing their displeasure of Trump and his rhetoric.Oswaldo Parapi and his father took turns waving the flag of Ecuador, the home country of both of Parapi's parents."(Trump) is an ignorant man," said the 17-year-old Parapi who was born in Fort Wayne. "It is actually pretty funny hearing him speak. He says some dumb stuff."The protest was largely peaceful, with passersby honking their horns and yelling for and against Trump. Several Allen County Sheriff officers were stationed nearby to make sure the situation did not deteriorate."You have people (out here) with a lot of emotion," said Nan Nesbitt, a 1966 graduate of North Side High School who protested on Sunday. "Many (immigrants) worked hard to get here and to be belittled by somebody who never really was one-on-one with them or their kind...that's heartbreaking to them."Despite the protests, thousands of Trump fans battled long lines to hear him speak. While some did not want to go on record as to why they supported the businessman, others were eager to make their opinions known."All of the establishment is coming out against him," said Ohioan JB Schaffner. "When you get someone like Trump who begins to say things (against the establishment), who says things that people are feeling, we start taking notice and listening."Trump looks to be in good shape heading into Tuesday's primary. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist survey released Sunday has Trump with a 15-point advantage over chief competitor Ted Cruz. Cruz will make a second appearance in Fort Wayne on Monday at 2 p.m. at the Grand Wayne Center.Trump is set to make a pair of Indiana appearances on Monday at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel at 4 p.m. and at the Century Center in South Bend at 7 p.m.

    Oh to that woman holding up the sign about Ivanka, good grief, Lady, it was a joke, a compliment to his daughter. He talks off the cuff unscripted and maybe it wasn't the best thing to say in a political environment, but Donald Trump is the best father in the world, just look at his kids, they're great and adore him, and always have. He's always put them first, let them crawl all over his office, would interrupt meetings and phone calls at work, and he didn't care, he put the business people on hold and took care of his kids first.

    'Make America Mexico Again': Why Americans are fed up with illegals

    By Todd Starnes
    Published May 02, 2016 FoxNews.com

    There is something a bit unsettling about watching violent, foul-mouthed protesters waving the Mexican flag on American soil.

    Over the weekend, Hispanic children lined the streets in Fort Wayne, Indiana – hurling filthy insults at Donald Trump supporters.


    Click here to join Todd’s American Dispatch: a must-read for Conservatives!


    “F*** you,” the youngsters shouted as they flipped off passerby. “F*** you.”


    Video captured images of the angry protesters wearing sombreros and holding signs that read, “Brown Pride.”


    What kind of a parent would allow their child to behave that way in public?


    A similar protest turned violent last week in Southern California – as a horde of illegals and their supporters violently attacked Trump supporters, police and even a horse.


    Yes, a horse.


    Cole Bartiromo, identified by local media as a Trump supporter, needed a half-dozen stiches after the mob bashed open his head.


    “Suddenly, out of nowhere I felt this thud in the front of my head,” Bartiromo told CBLA.com. “I started panicking – getting scared, thinking, ‘When are they going to stop? Are they going to kill me? I mean, these aren’t rational people.’”


    The California mob spilled into the streets – blocking roadways and smashing police cars. They intended to shut down a Trump rally. They intended to silence Mr. Trump and his supporters.


    They were angry about the wall he plans to build – to secure our border from the invading **horde** of illegals. They were angry about Mr. Trump speaking the truth – about how illegals are killing Americans – on American soil.


    One of the most disturbing images in recent days came from California – a small child – holding a sign. It read, “Make America Mexico Again.”


    There was a time in this nation’s history when having 13 million people breach your border would have been considered an invasion. We used to fight wars over such a hostile act.


    But these days instead of repelling the invaders, the Obama administration gave them food stamps, free health care, and a voter registration card.


    We’ve been invaded and our government has provided aid and comfort to the enemy.


    In both Indiana and California the protesters tried to bully and intimidate law-abiding Americans into silent submission. They tried – but they failed.


    You see, the illegals need to understand something – “We the People” will no longer be silent. We will not allow our sovereignty to be violated anymore.


    The American taxpayers have reached a boiling point. We are tired of illegals taking American jobs. We are tired of illegals living off our tax dollars. We are tired of illegals causing mayhem in our streets.


    And more than anything, we are tired of lawmakers who refuse to defend American sovereignty.


    The truth is we don’t know who or what has been coming across our southern border. We don’t know what dangers lurk in our neighborhoods.


    And we want a president who will put American lives first. We want a president who will do whatever it takes to keep our families safe. We want a president who will defend our sovereignty.


    And if I see one more foul-mouthed protester waving a Mexican flag on American soil – I’ll personally donate a pile of bricks to help build Mr. Trump’s wall.
