BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney left his mark on Birmingham. He was in the Magic City for a fundraiser at "The Club," but not everyone was happy to see him.
Governor Romney arrived at the club with a great deal of security as he headed through the gates of the club. Birmingham and Homewood police, along with the Secret Service, were everywhere.
When Romney's entourage arrived at five minutes to five p.m., there were only a handful of protestors opposed to his stance on illegal immigration. Within an hour, about 100-protestors had gathered and lined the street. Chanting about a variety of issues surrounding immigration reform, some were angry about what Romney's critics have said about his refusal to disclose all the information on his tax returns. They chanted they 'do' pay taxes.
Some of these protestors came by bus from Decatur to show their support for fellow Hispanics. Victor Palafax, the leader of this demonstration wants Romney to hear their concerns.
"We know what we're up against. We're up against a man who does not find us worthy of his acknowledgement and so despite that, we're going to keep working," said Palafax.
After about an hour, the protestors had to leave. Police say Governor Romney thought the protestors were too loud.
