Police officials: No immigrants will be bused into Murrieta Border Patrol for rest of week

The Murrieta Border Patrol facility on Madison Ave. will not be receiving illegal immigrants for the remainder of the week, Murrieta police officials reported Wednesday.

According to a Murrieta Police Department report, members of the department were notified by Border Patrol officials that there would be no flights of immigrants from Texas to San Diego starting today and that would remain the case for the rest of the week.

Because there will be no flights of immigrants, there will be no buses coming into the Border Patrol station, according to Lt. John Flavin. It wasn’t clear at this time when transportation of immigrants to the local facility would resume.

The halting of flights mark yet another installment in what has become saga spanning almost two weeks in Murrieta.

On Friday, June 27, officials were told to brace for the arrival of approximately 140 undocumented immigrants from Central America on July 1. When the buses arrived that Tuesday they were surrounded by angry protesters who were concerned about their arrival amid reports of illnesses such as scabies and fever.

The buses were turned away by the angry protesters and no buses have arrived in Murrieta since that time. Still, the protesters have remained in anticipation of more buses as reports have indicated that immigrants would arrive every 72 hours.

This is an ongoing story. Check back with the Valley News for additional details.

    Sad to see Border Patrol unable to do their job and keep America the Beautiful, safe because they aren’t allowed to by the Government in power.
