Fervor over the recent influx of undocumented immigrants into the U.S. reached new heights Tuesday. In California, a group of angry protesters blocked three buses trying to bring undocumented immigrants to a border processing station in the city of Murrieta. With American flags flying over their heads, more than 100 protesters in Murrieta blocked buses from the Department of Homeland Security, as they tried to bring roughly 140 undocumented immigrants into the city. The migrants came from Texas, where facilities have been overwhelmed by an influx of undocumented immigrants, many of them unaccompanied children. Authorities are racing to find facilities to accommodate them. But protesters say they don't want them in Murrieta. "I am here to have them sent back home," said one female protester. Some protesters encouraged others across the country to follow suit. "And if we go, they go anywhere else, stop them from coming there too because it's what's right," says Joseph Culbertson, a protester. The situation grew even more tense when a group of counter-protesters confronted the crowd. "We are the ones who build your homes! We are the ones who do your plumbing!" says one counter-protester. But the buses were forced to retreat, heading to another nearby border station for the time being. What happens next is unclear. Murrieta city officials say they were told to expect 140 immigrants every 72 hours. The next group is scheduled to arrive on the Fourth of July. According to the L.A. Times, Murrieta's mayor has urged residents to speak out against the federal decision to process migrants in his city. But at a town hall meeting on immigration later Tuesday, he appeared to try to calm the waters. "I also want to encourage everyone to keep in mind that these are people. They are citizens who are fleeing areas that are less desirable," says Murrieta Mayor Alan Long. "The problem is there's a process, and we want to make sure that process is enforced, and that people get here legally."
