BREAKING: Murrieta, CA Immigration Protests Part 2
From 2014 protests in Murrieta, California

Murrieta, CA was the home of immigration protests this past summer. Today, a pro-migrant march is taking place from Murrieta City Hall to Murrieta Border Patrol. Murrieta citizens who blocked DHS buses in July showed up in front of Border Patrol to show their disdain for current immigration laws

Being back in the 100 degree heat, with fellow patriots was like a déjàvu. The same faces, the same flags and the same issues resurfaced.

“Illegal is illegal” and “USA! USA! USA!” were frequent chants heart from the counter protestors.

People on the pro-migrant side marched up the hill to the Murrieta Border Patrol station. Signs said things like “Immigration is a human right” and “Not 1 more” from those who participated in the march.

The most interesting fact: there were a number of elementary-aged children who were marching with high school-aged kids and their parents. The march took place at noon, during prime time school and work hours. Why aren’t these kids in school? Don’t these people have jobs?

With race tensions between police and minorities, I have a feeling immigration will play one small part in the race debate.
