Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate. At least 17 were arrested.
Traffic came to a halt as protesters walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. Protesters smashed a window on at least one police cruiser, punctured the tires of a police sport utility vehicle and at one point, tried to flip a police car.
Video footage showed some demonstrators hurling debris at a passing pickup. One group carried benches and blocked the entrance to the 55 Freeway along Newport Boulevard, with some tossing rocks at motorists near the on-ramp.
Those protesters signed an option on the coalition’s website explicitly stating, “I pledge to be one among thousands who will risk arrest to save democracy in DC between April 11 – 16.”
Some 16 suspected members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have been arrested in southern Turkey supposedly ahead of infiltrating Syria to join fighting in the war-torn country.
The 16, including 12 foreign nationals, were arrested late March 2 in Kahramanmaraş, a southern Turkish province close to the Syrian border, as they attempted to cross into the Turkish provinces that border the embattled country.
With checkpoints at critical spots throughout Kahramanmaraş, counterterrorism police officers detained the 16 as they were suspected to have been readying to join the fighting in Syria and later arrested on the charge of “membership of a terrorist organization” by a court they appeared in following their interrogation.

Const. André Leclerc said a suspect is in custody and being interviewed by investigators.
The man was arrested on Monselet Street in the borough of Montreal North on Tuesday night.
The incident occurred last Sunday morning at St. Cecilia’s Cathedral. The elderly lady is seen on a security camera picking up a pamphlet before she is blindsided by two thugs, one of whom steals her purse. The other individual then punches the woman full force in the head. She collapses to the ground and subsequently had to be taken to hospital.
After tips poured in from the public, police arrested 22-year-old Wayman Clark, the individual seen throwing the punch in the video. The man who stole the woman’s bag remains at large.
Clark was recognized by the police gang unit because they had encountered him just days before. Court records show that the suspect has a lengthy list of minor arrests. Clark’s mother was also arrested for harboring a fugitive.
