Feds booed in California city after migrant standoff

Posted: Updated:
 EL CENTRO, Calif. (AP) - An overflow crowd in a Southern California community where protesters turned back Homeland Security busloads of immigrants gave a harsh reception to federal officials behind the decision to bring them to Murrieta in the first place.
    
The Wednesday night special meeting in Murrieta was called a day after the U.S. flag-waving protesters forced border officials to reroute the Central American immigrant families and children that had been sent from Texas.
    
The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that Chief Border Patrol Agent Paul Beeson took responsibility for sending the immigrants to  Murrieta, bringing jeers and chants of "send them back" from the crowd.
    
Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone, was wildly cheered after calling for secure borders and denouncing what he called the "exploitation" of traumatized women and children brought to the city Tuesday.
