HOUSTON, Texas–A busload of illegal immigrants were picked up from the airport in San Diego today–they had been transported there from South Texas. The migrants were then taken to an unknown location where officers screened each individual for diseases.
The location–which appeared to be a jail or holding place–is located off of I-5 and Beyer Boulevard, a source from Murrieta told Breitbart Texas.
Live feed from a CBS helicopter showed illegal immigrants loading out of three Department of Homeland Security buses, which then drove away. The migrants, most of whom appeared to be women and children, entered an area surrounded by chain-linked fencing. Officers wearing medical face masks then appeared to screen each individual for diseases.
Many believed that the illegal immigrants would be brought to a housing facility in Murrieta–a small city one hour north of San Diego where protesters blocked a busload of migrants from arriving last week.
At this time it is unclear if the migrants will stay at the unknown facility, or be brought to Murrieta subsequent to being screened for diseases.
