    Local politicians calling for secure borders proved far more popular with the crowd Wednesday night.

Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone, was wildly cheered after calling for secure borders and denouncing what he called the "exploitation" by the federal government of the traumatized women and children immigrants.
