On April 28, 20 people were arrested at a protest outside a Donald Trump rally at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California. Several news outlets report that the gathering, made up mostly of young Latinos, blocked streets surrounding the rally. Violence erupted after the rally was over as people began to make their way onto the streets.
The Los Angeles Times reports that "protesters smashed a window on at least one police car, punctured the tires of a police SUV, and at one point tried to flip a police cruiser."Related From Vivala: New Anti–Donald Trump Ad Has Powerful Message
Protesters also wrote anti-Trump messages on police cars and on a red sports car near the parking lot. One Trump supporter appears to have gotten beat up, and an image of him bloodied up circulated on social media.
Although scenes from the protest looked chaotic at times, the Orange County Sheriff's Department reported no major injuries, and that "the protest was over and that the crowds had dispersed around 11 p.m., after officers on horseback pushed people away from the amphitheater."
Protester Rojelio Banuelos, a 26-year-old student, carried a sign that read: "Liberation not deportation."
"I'm against Trump's nativist and nationalistic agenda, which divides people and is very hateful of the other," he told CNN.
