    Protestors Block Buses of Illegal Aliens in Murrieta CA.

    Protestors Block Buses of Undocumented Immigrants in Murrieta

    By R. Stickney and Omari Fleming
    Tuesday, Jul 1, 2014 | Updated 3:08 PM PDT

    Protestors carrying signs and U.S. flags blocked three buses carrying undocumented children and families to an immigration processing facility in Southern California.

    More than 100 undocumented immigrants were stopped from reaching the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's processing facility in Murrieta.


    ICE officials turned the caravan around and headed southbound on Interstate 15 back to San Diego County. Their destination was unknown.


    Some Murrieta residents have criticized the transfer of the women and children to Riverside County from Texas where conditions have been described as overwhelming and overcrowded due to a recent influx of unaccompanied minors along the U.S.-Mexico border.


    Federal officials transported the women and children, some just infants, on an airplane that anded just after noon at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field.


    It was the first of several flights expected to arrive in San Diego over the next three days, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.


    The undocumented immigrants were then bused approximately 90 minutes north to Murrieta, a city that has not exactly rolled out the red carpet ahead of the unprecedented transfer of children and families.

    Murrieta Mayor Alan Long spoke out Monday against the plan, suggesting that national leaders "put a stop to it so we stop having to manage their headache."

    The city council was set to address the issue Tuesday, too, and a town hall where residents can air concerns is set for Wednesday.


    Once the undocumented children are processed, they and their families will be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. There were no plans to release them in Murrieta, Long said.


    ICE officials said those who planned to stay with family or friends across the country will be transported to bus terminals or airports so they can go to their final destinations. They will then be required to report to the nearest ICE office, where their cases will be managed.


    Donations were piling Monday up at the San Diego headquarters for Border Angels, a non-profit organization whose volunteers work to prevent deaths of undocumented immigrants traveling through the deserts and mountains east of San Diego.


    The group's executive director Enrique Morones was working to organize donations like food and toiletries for the children and families who were scheduled to arrive.


    “If we truly are America’s Finest City, like people like to say, it’s time we show it. It’s important we welcome these kids that are coming,” Morones said.


    Morones said if the children were from Canada, there would be no question about helping them, and he invoked the message of the Emma Lazarus poem inscribed below the Statue of Liberty.


    "It's important that we practice the creed of 'Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses' even if you're not coming from across Atlantic," Morones said.


    He also urged other minorities to think back to their ancestors and their arrival through Ellis Island before exclusion acts and quota laws were put in place.


    But conservative activist and blogger Rhonda Deniston
    is concerned the influx of undocumented children could impact public health and strain border patrol.


    "We're putting huge burdens on our Border Patrol, where they cannot effectively secure our borders because they're dealing with this crisis," Deniston said.


    Morones and Deniston did agree on one thing: That the U.S. immigration system needs to be fixed.


    Deniston said she'd like to see immigration reform to help bring more engineers and great minds into the workforce. She said politicians from both parties need to enforce the laws on the books instead of ignoring them for political reasons, whether to exploit cheap labor or to woo minority voters.

    Controversy awaits as immigrants arrive in SD



    10News Digital Team12:00 PM, Jul 1, 2014
    2 hours ago























    SAN DIEGO - A plane carrying 140 undocumented immigrants, including lone children, landed at Lindbergh Field in San Diego Tuesday afternoon amid a brewing crisis over a surge of Central Americans crossing the U.S. border to escape poverty and crime in their home countries.

    The charter jet from Texas left McAllan International Airport Tuesday morning. The immigrants were set to be bussed to Murrieta, where they would be processed at a Border Patrol office.

    Awaiting them in Murrieta will be protesters.

    This comes after President Obama in a news conference Monday called the spike in immigrants crossing into the U.S. through Texas a "humanitarian crisis." On Monday, he asked for more than $2 billion to help with the situation. The president said he will go around Congress and shift resources to the border by the end of summer.

    The U.S. is seeing a surge of immigrants from Central America due to rampant crime there, with a large number of those being unaccompanied children who are seeking to join their families.

    Hondurans, Salvadorans and Guatemalans are making up about 75 percent of those caught in South Texas. Authorities arrested more than 47,000 unaccompanied children on the border from October 2013 through May 2014, up 92 percent from the same period a year earlier, according to The Associated Press. Unlike Mexicans who can be deported the same day with a short bus ride, Central Americans must be sent home on U.S. government flights, an expensive process.

    New photos show Texas facilities overflowing with people, many of them children from dangerous parts of Central America. The immigrants are being spread out to different sectors to alleviate pressure on the stations on the front lines.

    Along with San Diego, another 140 immigrants being flown into Yuma, Ariz., and transferred to Border Patrol facilities in El Centro, Calif. The flights will likely continue indefinitely, with thousands of immigrants expected to come through the processing facilities.

    10News learned that security and escorts for each flight costs about $70,000.

    In a statement Tuesday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) provided details regarding how the immigrants would be processed:
    “U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) El Centro and San Diego sectors are about to begin assisting with the processing of migrants apprehended in South Texas, many of whom are adults with children,” the statement read. “Upon completion of CBP processing, CBP will transfer certain individuals to ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), where appropriate custody determinations will be made on a case-by-case basis, prioritizing national security and public safety.”

    According to the news release, after being screened by the Department of Human Services, the immigrants might be released with instructions to report to an ICE office within 15 days. Some could be allowed to stay under the Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program. According to ICE, ATD is a “flight-mitigation tool that uses technology and case management to increase compliance with release conditions and facilitate alien compliance with court hearings and final orders of removal while allowing aliens to remain in their community.”

    Calif. Town Forced to Accept Illegal Aliens as Immigration Crisis Escalates

    July 1, 2014 - 5:25 PM
    By Brittany M. Hughes

    (CNSNews.com) -- The local government of Murrietta, a city in Southern California, is speaking out against the federal government’s forced transfer of illegal immigrants from detainment centers in Texas to their local border patrol facility.

    Expressing some consternation, Murrietta City Council member Randon Lane told local affiliate NBC4, “We have money to take them from Texas, fly them to San Diego, bus them up to Murietta, and then turn around and ship them off to some other place – we have the money to do that – we just don’t have the money to secure our borders? So, yes, it seems very odd.”

    The transfer is part of the federal government’s response to the massive wave of illegal immigrants who have been crossing the Rio Grande Valley Sector of the U.S.-Mexico since February. The Department of Homeland Security reports that more than 181,000 illegals have crossed since October 2013, far outpacing projections and with so sign of stopping anytime soon.

    According to the NBC4, Murietta Mayor Alan Long has been adamantly opposed to the federal government’s decision to transfer illegal immigrants from their current detainment facilities in Texas to be “processed” at the Murietta location, calling the move an indication of a “failed system.”

    "Clearly, this is a failed system that is spreading the cost and needed resources to handle these situations on the backs of local communities," Long said. "Nevertheless, we must react and put a plan in place."


    Alan Long, mayor of Murrietta, Calif.

    Long’s official Facebook page also details his opposition to the transfer. In a Monday afternoon post, the mayor placed the blame squarely on the federal government for burdening his city with the current immigration crisis, adding that this is not the first time relocating illegal aliens to Murrietta has been discussed.

    “While the number and frequency of immigrants is less than the first notification, Murrieta is still opposed. Murrieta expects our federal government to enforce our laws, including the deportation of illegal immigrants caught crossing our borders, not disperse them into local communities. However, this decision was made by the federal government and is not within our local authority to change,” Long wrote.
    According to NBC 4, only families will be transferred to the facility – no single adults who crossed the border alone. Those who come through Murrietta will already have phone numbers and addresses for family in the United States, where they will be sent after being processed, the report added.

    Long was not the only Murietta government official to protest the transfer. In the report, City Council Member Randon Lane also criticized the move, calling it “odd.”

    “We have money to take them from Texas, fly them into San Diego, bus them up to Murietta and then turn around and ship them off to some other place,” Lane said. “We have the money to do that, we just don’t have the money to secure our borders? So yes, it seems very odd.”

    The illegal immigrants will pass through San Diego before arriving by bus at the Murrietta facility beginning Tuesday, July 1, the report said. The facility can process up to 25 immigrants per hour, and groups will be transferred to and passed through the facility once every 72 hours.

    In his Facebook statement, Long sought to assure Murrietta residents that the local authorities would remain as on top of the situation as possible, primarily to ensure public safety.

    “I have instructed our City Manager to establish Unified Command and create an Incident Action Plan (IAP) with multiple contingency plans and mutual aid. Safety and operational continuity between agencies is a top priority,” he said, adding that the “Murrieta [Police Department] is taking the lead and will incorporate resources into the IAP.”

    “Again, Murrieta will remain safe! We will continue to communicate and monitor this situation and respond accordingly,” Long said.

    I wonder how long it be before they force citizens to take them into their homes and support them.

    Rumor has it that they will wait until after dark and try to sneak the buses back to the same place, minus the protesters.
