Second group of migrants arrives in San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A plane carrying a group of undocumented migrant families and children landed Friday in San Diego.

The 140 migrants were being transported from Texas. After landing at Lindbergh Field, they'll head to Murrietta to be processed. But protestors could block them from entering their city, once again.

"God bless America my home sweet home," dozens of protestors sang.

A huge crowd camped out into the early morning hours in Murrieta.

But on this Fourth of July, it's not the kind of Independence fireworks show you might expect.

Angry protestors chanted "USA, USA, USA" while waving American flags. They taunted people who support undocumented migrants who are scheduled to be processed at Murrieta's Border Patrol Facility.

"I don't think it's right that they should be bringing people from other countries, just dropping them off like garbage in any city that they choose. And let hardworking individuals pay for their way,” said protestor, Roger Moreno.

It became a screaming match that reached a fever pitch on both sides overnight. The controversy centers around 140 Central American families that could arrive in their city by noon Friday in Homeland Security buses.

Protestors say they're upset because the undocumented migrants entered the Texas/Mexico border illegally.

Just hours ago, two unmarked vans with tinted windows transported a number of the migrants to the Federal Building for processing.

Along with protesters in Murrieta, there is growing support.

"In order to help protest on behalf of my Hispanic family. I call mi familia hispana," supporter George Clifton said.

Some supporters also say they want the children and families to get a shot at asylum in America after facing orphanage, drugs and sex-trafficking in their countries.
