A group of kids threw marbles at another group demonstrating in favor of Border Patrol enforcement at San Juan Capistrano businesses, according to sheriff's Lt. Dan Dwyer, chief of police services.

Dwyer said more than 20 demonstrators were gathered about noon Saturday in front of Alipaz Plaza off Del Obispo Street. One demonstrator was hit by a marble but not injured, Dwyer said.

The demonstration was organized by the SJC Americans a local group that opposes illegal immigration in response to a news report that some business owners at Alipaz Plaza believe Border Patrol checks are scaring away customers.

Dwyer said there were "a couple of honking horns" at the demonstration, "but for the most part, it was very peaceful."
