Over the holiday weekend you might have seen footage of protesters in California blocking the route of buses transporting illegal immigrants to their town. Who can blame them, especially considering that many of these kids who came here illegally have communicable diseases. Federal officials apparently aren’t happy about the protests, and according to Breitbart News will be sending in agents in riot gear to deal with the protesters.
As illegal immigrants continue to spill across the U.S.-Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate the migrants from South Texas to housing facilities in states across the nation. One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving. The protesters remain there, adamant that illegal immigrants don’t get dumped in their town. But soon the concerned citizens may be forced to step down–Breitbart Texas has learned that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta on Monday with riot gear to ensure that another busload makes it to the housing facility.
Jeremy Oliver, a resident of Temecula, California–a town that neighbors Murrieta–told Breitbart Texas that local police officers warned the protesters that “it’s going to get ugly.”
Oliver said, “The feds are pissed that they haven’t been able to use this facility. Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday–they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back.” (Read more but prepare for autoplay video.)
Didn’t someone from the administration previously promise that they would not send these immigrants to communities where they aren’t wanted? So much for that promise. They’re sending them to cities without even consulting with city leadership. Numbers USA has an interactive map showing where they’re planning to ship the illegals and where they’ve already sent them.
In other news, Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson had a hard time answering a question about whether or not the illegals will be deported.
Update: The Pirate’s Cove noted that President Obama is going to Texas to address this terrible situation. Oh wait, that’s not why he’s heading to Texas.’
Fortunately, Obama is heading to Texas, a border state which is one of those seeing a huge influx of the illegals. As usual, though, Obama isn’t going there to Do His Job. Oh, no. He’s headed to multiple fundraisers. This isn’t leading from behind. It’s an abdication of responsibility.
