City Of Murrieta Is Latest Immigration Flashpoint

Posted: Updated:
Murrieta, CA - (FOX 11)When American flag-waving protesters forced busloads of migrants to leave Murrieta earlier this week, the Southern California city became the latest flashpoint in an intensifying immigration debate that could heat up even more as patriotism surges on the Fourth of July.

Update From Gina Silva:

Demonstrators from both sides of the issue have been in Murrieta all day long. They are waiting for the buses carrying undocumented immigrants from Central America. 

Many of them are women and children who were detained while trying to cross the US border in Texas. Out of approximately 150 demonstrators, six people have been arrested. There is a much bigger police presence with zero tolerance for any kind of trouble.  

No one from the police department or the Border Patrol will say anything about the buses. Not when they are arriving or even if they are arriving. 

As soon as things develop, we'll update this story.
