Angry protesters block busloads of undocumented immigrant families in California

MURRIETA – Angry protesters on Tuesday blocked a federal plan to transfer busloads of undocumented immigrant families into Riverside County, a clash that epitomized the explosive national debate over immigration reform, The Desert Sun reports.



More than 100 protesters — who waved American flags and signs that clearly stated their opposition to "new illegals" and higher taxes — waited all day in the hot sun for the three charter buses to arrive at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection station in Murrieta.

Federal agents tried to avoid a confrontation by taking a route that steered clear of the station's front entrance, but their plans were sabotaged when protesters created a human wall that blocked the street. The buses were unable to evade the crowd, prompting authorities to abandon the transfer. The buses returned the immigrant families to a processing center in San Diego County.
