Politics: Immigrant Protests

Last week, a group of citizens in Murrieta, California led an immigration protest that has caught the attention of people around the world. Protesters from the Southern California town forced busloads of immigrants to leave Murrieta, an act that has further heated up the ongoing immigration debate in the United States. The approximately 140 immigrants on the bus were traveling to a Border Patrol facility in Murrieta in order to be processed, but were unable to make it because of the protestors. Many of these immigrants were flown out to California and Texas cities by U.S. authorities in an effort to help them escape the murders and gang violence of the Texan border. The town is known for its strong beliefs on immigration policies; most Murrieta citizens believe that the federal government needs to crack down on immigration policies, and that if certain groups of illegal immigrants are granted American rights, then all immigrants will expect to be granted those rights as well. In fact, it has been reported that Murrieta citizens are preparing for protests in the near future.
