Immigration activists headed to Pomona College in Claremont, Calif. this weekend to protest during Department of Homeland Security Chair Janet Napolitano's commencement speech.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

As Napolitano spoke to the graduating class, the demonstrators gathered on the steps of the Andrew Carnegie building, chanting "Si, se puede!" (Yes, we can) and "Obama escucha, estamos en la lucha" (Obama, listen, we're in the struggle). The protesters were also waving signs that read "Alto AZ" (Stop Arizona) and "No mas racista" (No more racism).

Across the street, about a dozen silent counter-protesters stood holding American flags and held up signs that called for support of Arizona.

Students protested Napolitano by donning white sashes.
