Buses carrying migrant families were rerouted to a U.S.-Mexican border station after being blocked by protesters waving American flags in a suburban Southern California city.
Protesters, some yelling, “They’re not born here!” and “Go back to Mexico!” stood in the street, blocking the buses as they were headed to the suburban border patrol station in Murrieta.
Demonstrators got in the faces of counter demonstrators in the middle of the roadway. There was some pushing and shoving, but there were no arrests.
The buses were coming to Murrieta to drop off 140 undocumented immigrants, who illegally crossed into the United States through Texas.
