California: Crowd of Protesters Block Illegals From Entering U.S. Border Patrol Station

Dozens of protesters blocked the road Tuesday so buses full of undocumented immigrants couldn’t make their way to a U.S. Border Patrol Station in Murrieta.

Approximately 140 people were flown into San Diego from Texas at 11 a.m. and bused to Murrieta around 2:20 p.m., with similar groups expected to arrive every three days.

The Desert Sun reports:

More than 100 protesters — waving large American flags and holding signs that opposed higher taxes and “new illegals” — waited in the hot sun all day for the three charter buses to arrive at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection station in Murrieta.
