Protesters on Tuesday blocked three busloads of immigrant families being transferred to a federal facility in Riverside County.

More than 100 people waving American flags and holding signs that opposed "new illegals" waited in the hot sun for the three charter buses to arrive at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection station in Murrieta, about an hour north of San Diego.

Federal agents tried to avoid a conflict by taking a route that steered clear of the front entrance.

But instead, the crowd blocked the street and forced the buses to make an unplanned detour to an undisclosed processing center in San Diego County.
