Report: Riot Police to Greet Calif. Immigration Protesters

Protesters who turned away buses of illegal immigrants in Murrieta, Calif., last week aren't likely to be successful next time, as federal authorities are planning to show up in riot gear, Breitbart.com reports.

Federal agents are scheduled to arrive in Murrieta on Monday, according to Breitbart, and Jeremy Oliver, of nearby Temecula, Calif., told Breitbart that local police are telling protesters, "it's going to get ugly."

The federal government is angry that they aren't being allowed to use the Murrieta facility, Oliver told Brietbart. "Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday – they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back."

Murietta resident John Henry told Breitbart that streets will be blocked with concrete barriers and that local police already have set up a 35-foot-tall watch tower.

Murietta Mayor Alan Long told CNN on Sunday he believes most of the protesters are from outside his town of 106,000, which he described as a "very small town with a national problem on our doorsteps. We have local residents with legitimate concerns."
