Minutemen Call Off Rally At Day Labor Site After KKK Show Up In Support

RANCHO CUCAMONGA - An illegal-immigration protest organized by the Minuteman Project on Saturday morning was foiled by the arrival of members of the Ku Klux Klan.

About 10 members of the white-supremacist group showed up at Arrow Highway and Grove Avenue and proceeded to shout chants and wave an American flag. Some members wearing black T-shirts emblazoned with the KKK insignia concealed their identity with bandanas and sunglasses.

One man identified himself as a member of the White Legion Knights of the Ku Klux Klan from Yucaipa.

KKK members said they were at the protest to support the Minuteman Project but refused to comment further.

Minuteman Project National Rally spokesman Raymond Herrera said his group of about 40 members decided to leave shortly after the KKK showed up.

Herrera said Minuteman Project members did not invite the KKK and would no longer post the dates of protests on its Web site.

"We don't approve of standing anywhere near the KKK - they're not with us," said Herrera, a Mexican-American from Victorville. "We're a multi-ethnic group. We don't believe in racism, and when the Nazis show up we cancel the rallies immediately. We do not intermingle and we do not believe in their philosophy."

San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies and Upland police officers monitored the protest. No arrests were made.

The agencies did confirm reports were made that KKK members were in attendance.

But when Minuteman Project members left, the protest at the intersection didn't stop.

1. Sorry with minutemen, but you make a shit soufle and flies will show up
Not entirely unlike the anarchists who show up at our peace rallies and throw shit. They smell something that smells close to their philosophy and come a runnin'!
