More Immigrants Anticipated in Southern California

The U.S. government does not have the room to house the influx of immigrants from south of the border and has had to bus them to different locations.

One of those locations is the small city of Murrieta in Southern California, which is expecting 140 immigrants every three days.

On a national holiday, marking the birth of a nation made up of immigrants, protesters for and against started a new round of demonstrations on Friday that became angry.

Murrieta is named after a man from Spain who set up his own sheep ranch with his family in 1873. Today the city is a flashpoint in the immigration crisis that is taking a grip along the U.S. border with Mexico.

Protesters have denounced the government transfer of detained undocumented immigrants to their city for processing.

Earlier this week, demonstrators blockaded three busloads from entering the city.

On Friday another convey of buses with immigrants aboard arrived in Murrieta.

One Murrieta resident expressed outrage about the crossing made by undocumented immigrants. He said there is a correct way and an incorrect way to enter the U.S. He said millions did it correctly but these people are not.

A counter protester from Long Beach said that the country was made up of immigrants and she was an undocumented student.

Only one protester was arrested on Friday.

Emotions have been on edge with racial slurs being shouted against Hispanics who were there defending the rights of the immigrants.

On Friday, the protesters held placards that spoke of it being about law and not race.

Other placards in support of the immigrants said that there are no illegal humans and no white supremacy.

The police were able to secure the road, making the entry by the buses to the Border Patrol easier

About a half mile from the border patrol office, a police yellow line held dozens of protesters back, while later in the day, police needed to separate the two feuding sides.

Protesters in favored of the immigrants chanted in Spanish that a race that is united is never defeated.

Police threatened to arrest protests if they started fighting.
