WALKER, Mich. — Protesters rallied outside Donald Trump's rally at the DeltaPlex, Monday evening. The number of people protesting varied by the hour. Protesters were present at the entrance with signs expressing their opposition to the presidential candidate.

Many said they take exception with his previous controversial remarks on the campaign trail. Particularly his comments about Muslims and immigrants.

"Well, I think that we're doing a good job out here just being a calm, peaceful protest but still getting your point across. That's what we want to do," Brandi Tenhoopeno said.

"We're blue collar people out here. With [workers] coming out, I think you're going to see a big rush. As you see, traffic's backed up and I think you got a big opposition out here, and I think you'll see through the night," Adam Underhill said.

A heavy police presence worked to help with the flow of traffic and keep the crowds under control.
