The encampments have always caused a certain amount of conflict with nearby residents, some of whom live in million dollars homes. And this past weekend, more than a hundred protesters showed up to draw attention to illegal immigration. The protesters included members of the San Diego Minutemen, who assume the workers who live in the camps are here illegally. The protesters were vocal, but kept in check by a heavy police presence.
