Anti-immigration rallies held by neo-Nazi groups in Arizona and Minnesota this weekend drew large counter-protests sometimes outnumbered the original protest. The counter-protests drew large numbers of residents who felt the need to confront the neo-Nazis:
I've never done anything like this before, but there's just so much racial tension in Phoenix lately," Wilcox said, as he held a sign that read "Nazis stay out of PHX." "I don't want it to seem like (they are) welcome here." [. . .]
The opposing rallies in Minnesota were shadowed by police officers and firemen on guard to quickly quell any disturbance. Three counter-protesters were arrested last month during a previous confrontation between the two groups.
