Some 60 supporters of President Trump’s border wall scuffled with 20 opponents during a rally near the Otay Mesa Point of entry.
The event took place at the east end of Enrico Fermi Place, and included a speech by Rep. Duncan Hunter, who was an early supporter of President Trump.
The San Diego Sheriff’s Department said deputies were on hand and there were no injuries, property damage or arrests.
“The event was a generally peaceful assembly with minor disturbances between the two groups,” the department said in a statement.
Ironically the street where the rally took place is named for an immigrant, physicist Enrico Fermi, who was instrumental in helping the United States build the first atomic bomb in World War II.
