A neo-Nazi group called the National Socialist Movement marched outside Pomona city hall this past Saturday demanding an end to undocumented immigrants coming into the U.S.
Pomona is considered to be a “sanctuary city” for undocumented immigrants. Sanctuary cities are known as places where the town doesn’t abide by federal immigration policies.
According to the 2010 Census, 70 percent of Pomona identifies as Hispanic. 500 counter demonstrators attended as well to combat the 30 neo-Nazis.
Last year, the National Socialist Movement’s activities primarily focused on immigration. They are known for being extremely anti-Jewish, and racist.
NSM member Butch Urban stated that their neo-Nazi group did not have a permit to march.
