Anti-immigrant protesters blocked several buses of undocumented immigrants from reaching a Border Patrol station in Murrieta, California, last Tuesday.
The undocumented immigrants were sent from Border Patrol stations in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, which has been overwhelmed by illegal immigration since October 2013.
On the 4th of July, anti-immigrant protesters assembled again outside the Border Patrol station in Murrieta, hoping to block more buses, but instead were met by pro-immigrant protesters, notes USA Today (video below).
The buses never showed up, but there was plenty of drama between the anti- and pro-immigration rallies.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say they will no longer publicize immigrant transfers between Border Patrol facilities.
However, local citizens claim they have been told by local police that there will be another transfer of undocumented immigrants to Murieta via buses on Monday, and the buses will be protected by federal agents in riot gear.
"The feds are pissed that they haven't been able to use this facility," Jeremy Oliver, a Temecula, California resident, told Breitbart.com. "Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday, they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back."
John Henry, a Murrieta resident, added, "We're being told that federal Marshals or ICE will be here in the next few days and that they are bringing riot gear. They're apparently going to be blocking off the street with concrete blockades so that no vehicles can get through. The River County Sheriff's Department showed up last night and brought a huge watch tower that shoots up into the air 35 feet."
Henry said that illegal immigrants are being "rewarded" with housing and food for breaking the law, but U.S. citizens pay the price for breaking the law.
"If any one of us were to roll through a stop sign, we'd be pulled over and ticketed," Henry added.
