MURRIETA (CBSLA) —  An unknown number of migrants were recently flown into Murrieta’s Border Patrol facility and some in the community were quick to stand in front of the gates to let them know they’re not welcome to stay.

Murrieta resident Bob Kowell says he’s all for legal immigration but told CBSLA’s Nicole Comstock that a source informed him of 100 undocumented immigrants being flown in from the Texas border to San Diego, then bussed to Murrieta over the weekend to be processed.

“We can be called a racist and we’ll just smile. Because we don’t care,” said Kowell. “We’re watching to see where and when they’ll move.”

He said that a source told him that the migrants will eventually be dropped off at strip malls and bus stations throughout the valley.

The Murrieta Police Department, however, said that is not true.

According to the Murrieta Police Department, “Our chief Sean Hatton contacted the commander of the border patrol station in Murrieta and was assured from him that there was not going to be any immigrants released from the Murrieta border patrol station.”

Capt. Rob Firms said the police department wanted to set the record straight right away because of the heated protests that happened here the last time migrants came for processing in 2014.

“We had 1,000 people here probably and the buses were stopped by the people,” said Kowell.

Officials estimate more than 500,000 migrants seeking asylum have been apprehended at the border in the first five months this year.

    The sad part is those that are apprehended are only a fraction of those entering the U.S. But… the Democrats still say it isn’t a problem and the neither party will punish those that hire illegals.

    1. Jason Ledd says:

      Clearly, Trump is not stopping anything. He is shipping in more illegals than last 4 royal imbred Presidents combined. This is an invasion. Declare war, since Constitution says we can’t go to war “UNLESS ACTUALLY INVADED”, we can finally have a legal war and USA can stop being war criminals. If treasonous US govt can break law in Constitution and invade distant foreign nations for weapons of mass destruction, then we can declare war for actual invasion. But thats not the plan. Trump and New World Odor have other plans for USA. So obvious you can smell it miles away. Why is govt letting illegals into USA? Trump, like every other leader, except Orban in Hungary, wants more income tax slaves, even if it means importing terrorists, rapists, and Muslims who will change USA culture and religion. Here’s a hint for America, start learning the Koran and Arabic. It will go much easier if you do. Google “who would Jesus tax”

      1. David Bugg says:

        Cue theme to “The Twilight Zone”

      2. Shelly Havara says:

        Trump isn’t shipping in anything. Trump is moving around all the illegal aliens that the Democrats invited here to be counted in the 2020 census, so they can stuff the ballot box. Not with voters, but more representatives.

        The libs keep inviting them and protecting them and more come, they still invite them they still protect them then give them free stuff, and more come… so many are coming Trump has no other alternative but to start moving them around, because the libs won’t allow them to be sent back to where they came from.

        So, don’t go blaming this human illegal alien caravan catastrophe on Trump, this is the fault of the Democrat Party.

  2. Forest Vanhelde says:

    Why aren’t these people being “flown” right back to their home countries? What a scam on the American people! This is coming from the highest echelons of government—once again!

    1. J David Krauser says:

      Let them build homes in central Alaska.

      1. Wayne Coogan says:

        The hell with that. Take them to your own state.

  3. Ron Perkins says:

    Why isn’t the Media revealing who is paying the television advertisements encouraging their citizens to migrate to the USA?

    1. Jeff Mitchell says:

      Everybody knows – Soros and the Demoncrats

  4. Kevin Jones says:

    ship them to Nancy and Chucks Neighborhood, They invited them.

  5. Christine Baldwin says:

    I am also wondering why they are not returning them to their own country. We cannot support all those illegals. So wrong just turning them loose in our country.

    1. Mark C. Schwartz says:

      Ask your democrat bosses in your state that question. It’s democrats and democrats alone blocking any attempt to stem this invasion. They care more about these illegal invaders more than they care about your or your family. Stop electing these anti-American commies. You all deserve each and every one of these illegals aliens. It’s you and your fellow citizens that keep electing commies to run this nation.

      1. Ken Schroeder says:

        I’m sure that there are son Californians that do not want this invasion but your elected leaders don’t care what you think. They should be dropped off in Newsoms and Pelosis zip code. Until they have to deal with them they they won’t care. They live in gated communities with armed guards. You the citizens have to endure these illegals AND YOU get to pay for them too. Don’t kid yourself, they fill the emergency rooms, flood the schools requiring special teachers, are provided housing and money while real American citizens live in tents along the road. Any of you liberals in California see a problem with this? Didn’t think so. The people have to rise up like the folks in Murrieta. They are also trying to dump them in places like Buffalo NY instead of NYC. Buffalo is a financial disaster and cannot afford to take care of them and do not want them either. Send them to Schumers neighborhood.

    2. Elaine Beck says:

      Send them right back where they came from. Why are thousands (if not millions) are getting into this country? What’s the point of building a wall if we are just letting them come in here like this and going (or being sent) all around the country? Or they could be shipped them to Pelosi’s, Schumer, Schift, or other far left leaning Dem’s communities? Of course, they won’t be shipped to those neighborhoods. I know Murrieta and it’s an upscale city, a well kept city, and has an extremely low crime rate.

  6. Charlie Watkins says:

    Coming to take part in the American Dream of EBT Cards and free stuff.

  7. Lar Jam says:

    Any illegal caught voting needs to be deported immediately with no chance of return. I can barely afford my own family let alone taking care of the rest of the world that comes here to plop out babies and live off the tax payers.

  8. Janey Speelman says:

    Californication is a sanctuary state and now the people don’t want the illegals there. Seems to me that the State needs to fix itself and get rid of the democrats in charge . Soon there will be no CA, it will be part of Mexico and only Spanish speaking people will be able to get jobs

  9. Bill Loyal says:

    Until we are willing to take off time from our jobs, and take to the streets and block things up ourselves like the left does, nothing will change

  10. Dan Purcell says:

    If you want to stop illegal aliens flooding our borders, then you have to go after the policies and the asshat liberals in government and the media…or just suck it up and be over run in your own country.

  11. Continue to elect democrats and you will continue to be flooded with illegal aliens living on your dime and taking low income American’s jobs.

  12. Scott Crabtree says:

    All of our politicians are taking cartel money, via lobbying groups, to maintain the status quo on our southern border. Drug and human trafficking will continue on our southern border until these funding streams are made public. The money is laundered through the tourist industry in Mexico.

  13. Larry Waltz says:

    Fly them where they are welcome like the hamptons or marthas vineyard.

  14. Christian Ackerley says:

    I agree with you, Mr. Kowell, and I think more people in America should adopt your attitude. At the same time, please take care. In the present political climate, saying you don’t care if the Leftists call you a racist may very well result in physical violence being directed against you. In my state, we can prevent such violence by arming ourselves [open carry is legal in Arizona]. Throw a milkshake at me, you will get maced. Strike me, you will get a bullet between the eyes. In your state, Leftists have taken this option away from you. Until Californians are again allowed to protect themselves, caution and prudence are advisable. The Leftists will not hesitate to use violence against those they oppose.

  15. Can’t deport them and can’t incarcerate them indefinitely, so guess what? I guess everyone expects them to stay in somebody else’s back yard. WRONG!

  16. Johann Buk says:

    President Trump is trying , the Democrats will not even tour the border for fear of admitting there is a big problem, let alone trying to possibly fix it, unchecked illegal immigration is not sustainable, for our country

  17. Teresa Moore says:

    Get rid of your politicians,it is the only way, I just do not understand why Californians keep voting the same corrupt people over and over again,are they glutons for punishment,or is the State that far gone?

  18. Mike Cee says:

    Many people commenting here should be ashamed of themselves.

    These migrants are human beings, yet some of you speak of them like they’re animals. Most are families seeking asylum and a great many of them entered LEGALLY, turning themselves in at a port-of-entry.Those that didn’t are guilty of a misdemeanor.

    Were you jailed, separated from your family, or shipped across the country for indefinite detention and subjected to derision at a national level the last time you got a ticket for speeding? Would you think it just if you were? That’s the level of “crime” these “illegals” are guilty of.

    1. Howard H. Wemple says:

      How many have you taken in?
      You want them? You got them.
      Deal with it.
      You take them in and give them your job and home.

    2. Larry Jones says:

      “These migrants are filthy, illiterate, parasitic, criminal copies of human beings, ”

      Fixed it for you.

    3. John Rayne says:

      The problem is that they don’t show up for their court hearings once they are released. Of course, warrants are issued, but then local police often work against the law to allow them to stay regardless.

    4. Ryan Mouk says:

      Feel free to give ICE your home address so they can drop off your new friends.

    5. Angela Moore says:

      LEGALLY they should be applying after the first border they cross which would be Mexico. Yet they continue on to the US. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you it’s because Mexico does not have WELFARE.

  19. Mike Houck says:

    Thank your local member of Congress and your US senators.

  20. Rick Myers says:

    when everyone in this country reacts to being called a racist by answering F*ck you ,like these people are, then and only then can we save this country from being destroyed.

  21. Bellamy Brothers: “We don’t have to go to Mexico; Mexico came here”.
    So true!

  22. John Heighton says:

    They need to be thrown out of the country and if they cross back in illegally then the border patrol should use deadly force if they do not comply.

  23. Samuel Green says:

    It’s time for these sanctuary cities and states to now either PUT UP or SHUT UP and pass sensical immigration reforms to stop 99.9% of all illegal aliens from gaming the US cities.

  24. Steve Hansen says:

    Thank you President Trump for making the Sanctuary cities (and state of California) live up to their public declarations! Keep them flowing into the California and then wall off the entire state.

  25. William Durham says:

    Just like a Demo-rat, bring all the illegals BUT not here we don’t want them here

  26. Mark Green says:

    Build the wall,
    Build it deep.
    Build it high.
    At 15 billion dollars, it will still be cheaper the one US aircraft carrier.

  27. Elbert Colorado says:

    I hope they are sent to just the blue states and the sanctuary cities in the blue states.

  28. Bruce Smirnoff says:

    These unfortunate people should be welcomed by the citizens of CA and until they can find nice homes for them they should be sent to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and housed there.The kids can play in the lobby all day, whats the big deal?

  29. Craig Cochran says:

    Liberalism kills everything it touches.

  30. Gene Easley says:

    Maybe someone could put these illegal aliens to work cleaning the piles of trash in Los Angeles from the more than 50K+ homeless. Between cleaning piles of garbage and raw sewage running down the streets of LA I think illegals will have a lot to do.

  31. NY and CA are the designated sanctuary states. Those should be the destinations.

  32. Elena George says:

    I live in the McAllen sector. This is our every day here.

    When released, few have work permits. They are not supposed to get federal benefits or state ones for that matter. Now what do we do with these uninvited guests?

    In the mid-90s, we had a massive influx of Cubans. I was stationed in the FlaKeys at the time. Nearly every one of those folks were economic refugees. Then the Haitians noticed we had our hands full and took to the seas on anything that would float. They, too, were economic refugees. The vast majority of USCG assets fm all over the east Coast were redirected to the area.

    What did we do? We eventually let the Cubans enter via Gitmo stay and sent the Haitians back fm whence they came.

    If I had my way, I’d line up C-130 pax config on the tarmacs at McAllen-Miller. Each would bear the flag of the countries of the Northern Triangle. I would send them all back fm whence they came en masse. The USAF makes a very nice boxed lunch for such extended flights. Let the Army give them all vaccines before they get aboard the one-way flight home. Can’t say we did not do right by them, then.

  33. Mark Hobart says:

    Illegals are criminals. They broke the law.

  34. Sean Smith says:

    Why not send them to communities that will welcome them with open arms like Malibu or the Upper East Side of Manhattan?

  35. Gene Tillock says:

    Send them all to central park. Bathroom facilities on sight . Bring your own bar of soap. Concerts free all summer. Shakespeare in the park too, with quite an ending i hear.. Chelsea Clinton lives up.yonder. Remember to wave though and courtsy. She sthinks their royalty- more like royal thieves

  36. Tanner Boyle says:

    They asked for them now they got them. Now enjoy them and take care of them.

  37. The great and insuperable H. L. Mencken had your number 8 decades ago: “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.”

    You really should have “not care to be called racist” 30 years ago, when the invasion was already out of hand. Even 60 years ago when the Immigration Acts started to pass in Congress. Now it’s too frigging late, ninnies.

    Americans, you had a paradisaical nation and you capitulated cowardly and abjectly. But look at it on the bright side, you not only avoided impeccably to be called “racist” al these decades, you also went overseas to die in a war you had absolutely no business in, to defeat Germany!

    You reap what you sow. You had it coming and payback is a real motherf**&er.

  38. Sandy Nelson says:

    Only illegals from Mexico can be returned–by law Pres Trump must retain all others…Look it up folks!!..This is not on our President!!

  39. Dave Halpern says:

    Bus them to Nancy Pelosi’s mansion in San Francisco. They can all stay there.

  40. John Thomas Petersen says:

    There is nothing to worry about. The number of incoming refugees will be offset by the number of young Americans who will be K I A as long as we continue to invade foreign countries and start wars ! Looking at the comments here it’s obvious that many people need to wake up and realize that Republicans and Democrats are just two different branches of the same war mongering politicial system in DC! Until you realize that the power lies in the people of America and start to embrace your commonality rather than your differences nothing will change.
    Wether you vote R or D your part.of the problem !

  41. The caravans that bring them to the US are sponsored by American Non Profits that do not pay taxes. Those charities should lose their tax free status. https://www.influencewatch.org/non-profit/pueblo-sin-fronteras/
    When you encourage criminal activities you should lose your charity status. These charities are driving this invasion.

  42. F&cking hypocrites. Send them ALL to California. What the f*ck do you think “sanctuary state” means idiots?
