A protest by two anti-immigration groups in Anaheim turned into a shouting match and fistfight Saturday, but the crowd settled down before police arrived. Nobody was arrested, though several men were bloodied and bruised early in the demonstration, which drew about 200 people. Among the crowd were several people in black-hooded sweatshirts and bandanna masks who called themselves anarchists. They and others confronted the protesters, yelling, "Nazi scum!" and "Fascists!"

Re "Home of Immigration Activist Vandalized," Dec. 25: Until the United States realizes that we already have terrorists in our land, we will continue to overload the country's resources and be forced to live under the conditions imposed on us by uneducated people who have illegally crossed our borders. These people are not vandals, they are terrorists. They make every attempt (blessed by Vicente Fox) not to migrate legally and peacefully, but to change our country, our laws, our language, our customs.

President, California Coalition for Immigration Reform and retired border patrol agent, Mission Viejo. The first responsibility of anyone coming to this country is to come here legally and to follow our laws. Our group is opposed to illegal aliens. It's not about racism. We don't care what color, what race or what nationality they are, but we care that we're being invaded by people breaking the law. All these people have bled our systems dry.

Dozens of anti-immigration protesters at Tuesday's Anaheim City Council meeting demanded that police reconsider a decision to accept Mexican consular cards as identification.

Bearing placards comparing U.S. District Judge Mariana R. Pfaelzer to Adolf Hitler, a small group of Proposition 187 supporters picketed a federal courthouse in Downtown Los Angeles on Friday, demanding that she dismiss lawsuits aimed at thwarting the illegal immigration initiative. "Any official who holds the voice of the people in contempt is corrupting our Democratic government," said initiative co-sponsor Barbara Coe, who heads the California Coalition for Immigration Reform.

A controversial billboard on the California-Arizona border that called California "The Illegal Immigration State" was taken down Friday after the landowner became worried about his family's safety because so many motorists were stopping to photograph and gawk at the sign. It is the second billboard with the same message to be removed. The billboard was put up a week ago with funds from the Orange County-based California Coalition for Immigration Reform.

Both sides of the Proposition 187 debate have been running ad campaigns about the initiative, which would bar illegal immigrants from receiving public school education, non-emergency health care and social services.
