PASCO, WA- Some businesses around the 10th Avenue and Lewis Street intersection remained open during the protests Saturday and none were affected.

Hair stylist, Liviera Lopez with La Tijera Hair Salon, said she could see the entire thing happening right outside the window as the protestors chanted and marched down Lewis Street.

Lopez said when police showed up to try to get the protesters off the streets and onto the sidewalks, she did not know what was about to happen.

"I was like, 'Oh, I hope nothing else happens.' Other than that, they just got a little wild and then they backed off.  It was okay from there," said Lopez.

She said the protests did not cause much of a stir other than a few of her customers who had trouble finding a place to park because the streets were blocked off and protestors had taken up the business's parking spots.
