Editor’s Note: When the U.S. Border Patrol says the illegals were to be under “limited supervision” and to “await deportation”, it sounds like a problem to the local communities. Check out how the protesters were able to turn around those buses.
It turns out that the orchestrated influx of illegals from Central America is too much even for Californians.
That, at least, was the case two hours ago, as the U.S. Border Patrol tried to deliver two busloads of illegals to a holding facility in Murrieta, California (full disclosure: about a 30-minute drive from me) on Tuesday afternoon.
The group of 140 illegals had been flown on Tuesday from Texas to San Diego. Murrieta’s city authorities were notified about a week ago that they would be arriving, and that they would be released into the community under “limited supervision” to “await deportation.” It was assumed by everyone in Murrieta that this meant the illegals would be left to “disappear” into the local area.
The plan has been in the works for at least a month, and was shelved about a week ago, but then revived.
Mayor Alan Long issued a statement on Monday expressing Murrieta’s opposition to the move, although he confirmed that city officials felt they could do nothing to stop it.
