    On September 6, 2016 during the evening a confrontation between Murrieta police (California) and a young Hispanic man occurred at a CVS Store. It was 8:45 pm at 25000 Hancock Ave., just off Los Alamos and the I-215 Freeway. The Hispanic man was in the medicine aisle, allegedly destroying medical products and ingesting pills, when a Murrieta police officer confronted him. It became a battle that included 22 year old Alejandro Rojo reaching for the officer’s gun and attempting to run away as the officer called for backup. The battle spilled outside where two other officers joined the struggle, where...

Long, 44, was booked into the Southwest Detention Center in French Valley and later released on $50,000 bail. He did not respond to requests for comment.

    How unlawful are the minions of the elitist ruling leadership in Murrieta willing to go to stop conservative candidates like Ingram and Serafin? Jonathan Ingram is a local mover and shaker, a small businessman who is President of the Murrieta-Temecula California Assembly, and the President of the Greer Ranch Home Owner’s Association. His signs for Murrieta City Council have graced the roadways and the lawns of some homes as have other signs for other candidates. Diana Serafin knocks on doors in the sunshine more than any other candidate, contemplating the political task ahead of her. She is known for her...

    During the standoff at the Bundy Ranch one underlining fact changed the dynamic more than anything else: When push came to shove Barack Obama’s troops did not get into a shooting confrontation with the patriots who had gathered to fight his power. In the end, the federal troops backed down and went away, leaving Obama’s propagandists to rewrite the story, making him look like a reasonable and benevolent dictator willing to listen to his subjects. The truth is that whether they were to come directly from the White House or at ground level, any orders to shoot at peacefully protesting...

A token law enforcement presence was stationed at the intersection in front of the entrance where a lone patriot stood tall with his flag firmly planted. Similar to Friday, about a dozen patriots were scattered in and along side the 3 pop-up tents onsite, some waving flags and holding signs, and others seated in the shade chatting pleasantly amongst themselves.

Yet unlike in Murrieta, those demonstrating against the arrival of the destitute and vulnerable were met by a counter protest organised by pro-immigrant supporters, with heated exchanges between the...

    Given the recent history of such brazen actions by American citizens exercising their First Amendment rights, it was believed that the federal government would step in and begin detaining protesters in free speech zones or temporary holding facilities so that the buses could get through. But that never happened. Now, a highly credible insider speaking with GMN in a recorded interview has shed some light on what happened, and according to him things could have gone a whole different direction. According to the whistleblower, who has thus far remained anonymous for fear of reprisal, the Department of Homeland Security on...

On Friday’s "World News" on ABC, Wright called those in Murrieta, California protesting the buses bringing in illegal immigrants “anti-immigrant” and then ended by contrasting President Obama’s upbeat message, about America “welcoming” immigrants, with how “it sure doesn’t look that way in Murrieta.” David Wright: A different sort of fireworks today in Murrieta, California.

Thought you might find a couple of observations about the nature of the resistance to detainee dumping of interest. One thing that floored me was the stark reality that the narrative the network media present, in which minorities - especially Hispanics, are all of the same mind concerning Open Borders, enforcement, amnesty, etc. - is so false that it is laughable. I suspected this all along, but it was still somewhat surprising the extent. A quick teaser. I detail how the...

Obama is like an arsonist who sets fires to help rescue people from burning buildings. He's asked Congress for $2 billion to deal with a child refugee crisis of his own making, money that could have gone to seal the border instead of having Border Patrol agents acting as glorified baby-sitters by cooking, cleaning and even doing laundry.

Besides, helping them find wherever it was they were going is the humanitarian thing to do, we are told, because these people are refugees coming from places more dangerous than the United States, and it is our obligation to take them in, rather than deport them back to their...

Recently in Murrieta, buses filled with illegal aliens were stopped by American protestors. On the other side were illegal alien supporters who burned an American flag and shouted racist obscenities at the real Americans standing for their country.

    Yeah, I know. Illegal means illegal. Thanks for clarifying. And your community has its own challenges without detained immigrants arriving by the busload and no clear plan as to what will become of them. That’s all fair comment. But still, shame on those of you with bulging veins, clenched fists and hot-blooded hatred. Juxtaposed against the simplistic and ugly “go back home” rhetoric spouted in the streets of Murrieta this week are the horrific realities of some of the human beings – women and children, no less – aboard those buses. SNIP And let’s not forget that the influx of...

    MURRIETA -- An American flag has reportedly been burned by pro-amnesty protesters near the Murrieta Border Patrol station on America’s Independence Day. Breitbart News obtained the above photograph, which shows a burnt flag on the ground, from an anti-illegal immigration activist who was monitoring the pro-amnesty demonstration. Opponents of illegal immigration had gathered in Murrieta to stop Friday´s planned transfer of Central American illegal aliens, as they did earlier this week. A pro-amnesty counter-demonstration was organized in response. The illegal aliens, many of them unaccompanied children, are being brought from overcrowded Texas detention facilities for processing in California

    Some 'boots on the ground' observations by me of the Murrieta Town hall meeting and the reason why DHS feels justified legally in busing and releasing illegals instead of immediate deportation. I also delve into a scandal regarding the refusal of the Border Patrol to admit Riverside County Health officials onto the BP Station in Murrieta to assess the health risk issues if they do succeed in getting the migrants in.

    (CNN) -- The national controversy over a surge of Central American immigrants illegally crossing the U.S. border established a new battleground this week in a small Southern California town, where angry crowds stopped detained migrants from entering their community. The sentiment carried over to a raucous Wednesday night meeting at a Murrieta high school auditorium. Border Patrol and immigration officials got an earful. "This is an invasion," attendee Heidi Klute said before a full house. :snip: Local politicians appear to be in lockstep with their constituents. "It's a nationwide problem, and little ol' Murrieta has taken the lead," said Mayor...

    America's border crisis reached Main Street, as flag-waving protesters in a San Diego suburb turned back three busloads of illegal immigrants after the town's mayor warned Tuesday that federal officials were using the community as a safety valve for facilities swamped by a tide of Central American refugees. Fears of disease, crime and already-strained government services prompted Murrieta, Calif., Mayor Alan Long to rally residents against plans by the Department of Homeland Security to bus the children and families to a processing center in the city of 106,000 residents. Confronted by the protests, the buses were rerouted to San Diego.

    I’ve been living in Murrieta since 1989, when it was a rural area with few homes, many dirt fields, and ranches dotting the hills. Murrieta incorporated as a city a couple years later, but at that time my home remained outside the city limits.

    "A crowd of 300 angry protestors forced three buses carrying 140 undocumented migrant children and their parents to turn around in Murrieta, California, on Tuesday after they blocked the road. The dramatic confrontation between the flag waving protestors and the Homeland Security buses came one day after Mayor Alan Long urged residents to resist the federal government's plan to transfer the Central American migrants to California to ease overcrowding of facilities along the Texas-Mexico border. Holding up banners that said 'Return to Sender' and suggesting the children should be sent to the White House instead, the irate protestors succeeded when...

    Force Them to Retreat (Video) A group of patriots did America proud today — standing up against Barack Obama’s lawless mass amnesty.

Waving Americans flags and protest signs, the crowd refused to give way when the buses arrived with some...
