KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- More than 200 demonstrators turned up to protest the opening here of an anti-illegal immigration group's first regional conference.

The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps is holding a two-day conference in Kansas City in a show of solidarity with member Frances Semler, who attracted criticism from civil rights groups after she was appointed to a local parks board.

On Friday, protesters marched several blocks and held a demonstration outside the group's meeting place shortly before the event was to begin.
