A rally held to protest the conditions of immigrant detention camps at the border, turned into a heated shouting match between protesters for a couple minutes Friday in Belton.

The Lights for Liberty rally was held at the Bell County Courthouse and organized by the Bell County Democrats. They were protesting "inhumane conditions faced by refugees."

Opponents of the protest chanted "Build the Wall," but say they welcome immigrants to the U.S. but want them to come into the country legally.
