A flood of undocumented immigrants is overwhelming U.S. border towns and immigration facilities. A recent surge of unaccompanied minors is only complicating a very difficult situation. Some of those undocumented immigrants are being bussed to facilities in Murrieta, California. Protesters there are not just making their voices heard, but they are forcing the buses to leave. Kyung Lah visited Murrieta and found tensions boiling.
Murrieta's Mayor Alan Long told John Berman that he does not have a problem with the immigrants themselves, but he opposes the process that sent them to his community.

Karma's a real bear isn't it? All these people protesting and saying they don't want to be part of the dumping ground and such! Makes me sick! Let's not forget they were here before the so called Puritans came to the US and started outing Indians in all of the US. These are human beings not garbage, they what want a better life. They are hungry and desperate. Why is that so hard to understand! I can't believe such greed and selfishness by the so called American and you complain about the government and politicians? All of the protesters should be grateful they are not the ones who are looking for a better life but time is still there. Things can turn around and it could be the Americans looking for help and will meet with the same actions.
If the government is trying to enrage the country, they're going about it the right way. Set thousands of orphans loose in small towns full of trailer trash so poor they've already put their cardboard box up for second mortgage to buy their next six-pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
If this government had any sense of justice, it would unload all these orphans onto Catholic Churches, who's clergy commanded their parents against birth control in the first place.
THEY BROKE IT. MAKE THEM FIX IT.
