Chaos erupted outside GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump's campaign rally in Costa Mesa, California, Thursday night when a crowd gathered outside the theater to protest the candidate's aggressive immigration stance, including plans to build a wall between Mexico and the United States, and generally "divisive" political agenda, protesters told CNN.

"We could be peaceful and do things different, but we wouldn't get our voice heard," 19-year-old protestor Arianna Perez told the Los Angeles Times. Most of the crowd were Latino youth, according to Times reporter Matt Pearce, who was on the scene. 

No major injuries occurred, and the crowd was cleared by 11 p.m., according to police.
