MURRIETA — Local police officers have arrested two pro-amnesty activists in Murrieta, California, after one of them allegedly assaulted a police officer and an elderly woman who was protesting the arrival of illegal aliens at the Murrieta Border Patrol station.
The protests against the illegal aliens began last week and succeeded Tuesday in turning away three busloads of illegals, many of them unaccompanied children, detained in Texas.
Breitbart News spoke to eyewitnesses on the scene, who said that a group of pro-amnesty activists had “huddled” together before approaching the anti-illegal immigration demonstrators in a confrontational manner.
Several more busloads are expected Friday, and approximately every 72 hours in the coming days, as officials work to relieve the backlog of thousands of illegal aliens from Central America crowded into facilities in Texas.
