A crowd of 300 angry protestors forced three buses carrying 140 undocumented migrant children and their parents to turn around in Murrieta, California, on Tuesday after they blocked the road.
The dramatic confrontation between the flag waving protestors and the Homeland Security buses came one day after Mayor Alan Long urged residents to resist the federal government's plan to transfer the Central American migrants to California to ease overcrowding of facilities along the Texas-Mexico border.
Holding up banners that said 'Return to Sender' and suggesting the children should be sent to the White House instead, the irate protestors succeeded when the buses turned around and headed to a customs and border facility in San Diego - within sight of Mexico.
The illegal immigrants had been flown from Texas to California on Tuesday and arrived at 2pm to face many Murrieta residents furiously protesting the processing of the migrants to the Riverside County city US Customs and Border Protection facility.
It was the first flight planned for California under the federal government's effort to ease the crunch in the Rio Grande Valley and deal with the flood of Central American children and families fleeing to the United States.
Many of the immigrants were detained while escaping violence and extortion from gangs in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.
The government is also planning to fly migrants to Texas cities and another site in California, and has already taken some migrants to Arizona. [Didact: And you thought your government couldn't possibly be any dumber...]
[T]he most fervent, "kill them all and bury them in the desert", "build a wall topped with machine guns" immigration types were not the whites (although they were close). They were the professional class of hispanics.
