(Tulsa-AP) -- About 19 Ku Klux Klan members and 20 of their supporters rallied today at the Tulsa Civic Center in protest of illegal aliens.

The Klansmen were greeted by about 50 protesters who carried signs criticizing the group.

More than 150 Tulsa law enforcement officers were on hand to keep the peace. Police say no arrests were made.

The Klan told the crowd they didn't want illegal aliens coming into the country. The protesters played excerpts from Martin Luther King Junior's ``I Have a Dream Speech'' in response.
