Buses filled with undocumented immigrants turned away from a U.S. Border Patrol station in Murrieta, Calif., as they did last week.
The undocumented immigrants, mostly children, were headed for the Border Patrol station when the roads were closed by law enforcement as protesters stood nearby, notes Breitbart.com.
According to CNN, the undocumented immigrants were transferred to California because the Border Patrol stations in Texas are too overcrowded to process them.
The buses were rerouted to the San Ysidro, Calif., Border Patrol station for processing.
This morning, Murrieta Mayor Alan Long appeared on Fox News and claimed to have no idea why the undocumented immigrants were being bused to his town, reported MediaMatters.org (video below).
"All of a sudden, the world showed up at our doorstep," said Mayor Long.
However, Mayor Long seemed to know why the undocumented immigrants were coming to Murrieta during an interview with CNN last night. He also defended the protesters, some of whom have waved racist signs.
"We're a very small town here in Murrieta, and all the sudden we have a national problem at our doorstep," said Mayor Long. "We had some local residents with some legitimate concerns. I think most of the angry people you saw were from out of town."
"What I'm telling you right now, if those buses were to arrive here tomorrow, and enter the Border Patrol facility, you would see what Murrieta is known for. And that is a caring, compassionate community," added Mayor Long.
