Immigration crisis still heated in Murrieta; demonstrators on both sides protest at border patrol

Murrieta still seeing heatetd immigration protests

MURRIETA, Calif. - Demonstrators from Murrieta on both sides of the immigration crisis protested outside a U.S. Border Patrol Station.

This time it was a counter-protest on the bus transfer of mostly Central American women and children from overcrowded border patrol facilities in Texas, to those in Southern California. 

President Obama addressed the issue at a swearing-in ceremony for immigrants from 15 countries; they were becoming US citizens after serving in our military. 

"I'm going to do everything I can do, to keep our immigration system smarter and more efficient. If we want to do everything we can do to keep attracting the best and brightest from beyond our shores, we're going to have to fix our immigration system, which is broken," said President Obama.

The president has vowed to do more, despite congressional gridlock, including using executive powers, if necessary.
