Third group of immigrants arrives in San Diego from Texas

And the hits just keep on coming. The CBS affiliate in San Diego (via CNS News) writes that another group of illegal immigrants from Central America arrived today in San Diego.

The group of about 140 immigrants, who entered the United States illegally in Texas, were flown into Lindbergh Field late this morning and then bused to a U.S. Border Patrol facility in San Ysidro for processing.

On Tuesday, an initial group of the same size arrived in San Diego and were driven to Murrieta, where crowds of angry protesters blocked their entrance to a USBP facility, prompting authorities to take them instead to San Ysidro.

The departure of the migrants from the Riverside area marked a victory for the roughly two dozen protesters who had gathered to decry the foreigners’ arrival there, many waving flags and others carrying signs reading “Stop Illegal Immigration” and “Return to Sender.”

The immigrants, many of them women and children, are among tens of thousands of citizens of Central American countries who have flooded into the United States via Texas this year.

The Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector has been overwhelmed by the arrivals, prompting the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to seek other locations to send them until their cases can be assessed.

Murrieta Mayor Alan Long told concerned residents during a town hall meeting last week that the city had coordinated with the Border Patrol to ensure the anticipated influx didn’t create an untenable situation locally.

Bitter clashes nevertheless ensued between protesters of the mass wave and opponents of the protesters.
