SAN DIEGO (KGTV/CNN) - On the holiday marking the birth of a nation of immigrants, protesters held more angry demonstrations in a California town receiving new busloads of migrants arrested for entering the country illegally.

It was an Xtra Airways jet quietly landing at Lindbergh Field without any fanfare.

Empty government buses right on time there to meet their passengers, the undocumented immigrants.

Where they were headed shrouded in secrecy, the government refusing to release any details after a lesson learned. The lesson was a blockade that successfully re-routed buses from Murrieta on Tuesday.

At the border patrol facility in Murrieta, there was screaming from protesters and counter protesters.

On this hot Independence Day, there were fury-filled demonstrations and verbal sparring in anticipation of another convoy of migrants to arrive.

On Friday, and nearly 70 miles away, it was the long route as a caravan and its large police escort got on the freeway for a trip from the airport to their final stop,

It turned out the same place the immigrants were processed at the first time, the border patrol station in San Ysidro.
