Hundreds of people jeered and taunted a group of neo-Nazis who rallied against US immigration policy and the Iraq war Saturday on the steps of the state Capitol. Police estimated about 800 people showed up to counter the Minneapolis-based National Socialist Movement's speakers, but a brief rainstorm thinned the crowd. Neo-Nazi speakers demanded President George W. Bush pull troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan and place them on the Mexican border with orders to shoot to kill. They also denounced corporations for destroying the planet. Several punctuated their speeches with shouts of "White power!" and "Seig Heil!" Police said 64 neo-Nazis lined the Capitol steps. Officers arrested four people for disorderly conduct and one for resisting arrest.
