    FONTANA, CA -- Breitbart News has learned that 46 illegal aliens, mostly women and children originally destined for the U.S. Border Patrol station in Murrieta, CA, were bused instead Thursday to the St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Fontana, roughly 45 miles north. The 46 are among several hundred Central Americans who were caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas and have been transferred to California since. "The faith calls on us to do this," San Bernadino Diocese spokesperson John Andrews told Breitbart News. He said that the aliens would, in less than 24 hours, be driven from the church in...

    FONTANA, Calif. (KTLA) — Controversy is heating up in over 14 high-powered, semi-automatic rifles purchased by school police in Fontana. The $19,000 worth of weaponry was purchased a few months ago by the Fontana Unified School District Police Chief Billy Green. The rifles were ordered back in October — before the deadly school shooting in Newtown, Conn. — but officials say they hope they’ll prevent any future tragedies. Some school board members objected to the move at the time, but on Wednesday night, the board voted unanimously in favor of dispatching the rifles.

    Authorities have found the remains of a missing pregnant teenager at a landfill in Corona, authorities said Thursday. Investigators began looking for the remains of 17-year-old Anyssia Katherine Escamilla in May after her boyfriend admitted that he killed her and dumped her body in the trash. The remains were found Wednesday afternoon, said Sgt. Billy Green, a spokesman for the Fontana Police Department. Crews spent 70 days searching landfills in Rialto and Corona for Escamilla's remains. . .

    FONTANA, Calif. — Authorities say a pack of escaped dogs mauled three young siblings in California, leaving a 5-year-old girl in critical condition. Police Sgt. Jeff Deckers says the dogs — a mastiff and four pit-bull mixes — escaped a Fontana backyard Monday afternoon and attacked a mother walking with her four children. Deckers says the mastiff pulled the girl from her mother's hand and shook her violently. She has a punctured lung, broken ribs and bites and is on a ventilator.

    FONTANA, Calif. -- What goes around comes around, and in Brian Vickers' case, it came around at pole-winning speed Friday at Auto Club Speedway. With a lap at 183.439 mph (39.250 seconds) Vickers claimed the top spot for Sunday's Auto Club 500 Sprint Cup race, the second event on the 2009 schedule for NASCAR's foremost series. Vickers, whose No. 83 Red Bull Toyota was wrecked after contact from Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Chevrolet in last Sunday's Daytona 500, rebounded smartly from that catastrophe, edging three-time defending Cup champion Jimmie Johnson (183.164 mph) by .059 seconds at the 2-mile speedway.

    Bottles, rocks and fists flew during lunchtime Friday at Fontana High School. Students poured out of classrooms around noon when, they said, a fire alarm rang. They then saw what they described as a racial or gang-related riot erupting among about 500 students on the quad of the campus near Citrus Avenue. Some flocked to the chaotic melee with their cell phones taking pictures and recording video while others fled to get out of the way. Helicopters circled over the school. "There were fights everywhere girls and guys," said Dalila Lizarraga, 16. Campus police officers sprinted across four lanes of...
