A day after a trio of buses was turned away from the Murrieta Border Patrol facility, residents wanted to know if and when more will come back. Previous updates from ICE and border patrol officials had indicated that buses would be arriving every 72 hours.
While residents inside the meeting were concerned with keeping the migrant transfers from Texas out of town, many outside were gathered to show support for the families who entered the country illegally.
