RCMP officers stood guard outside a high school in Red Deer, Alta., Tuesday morning as more than 40 demonstrators staged an anti-immigration protest in the parking lot across the street.

The demonstration was staged after two fights last week that involved students from Syria, who critics claim were not as harshly punished as other students who took part.

In a statement posted Friday, school officials said the brawls resulted in the suspension of all eight students involved, and they rejected social media claims that Syrian students were less harshly disciplined.
