Murrieta, California - On Tuesday, several U.S. Department of Homeland Security buses transporting 134 undocumented immigrants to a Murrieta U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) holding facility was forced to go to the Chula Vista CBP facility near San Ysidro. Anti-immigrant and pro-immigrant protesters clashed with each other and blocked the road to the Murrieta CBP/Border Patrol station. 
Lupillo Rivera, a popular Mexican Banda singer joined the pro-immigrant group and told the Anti-immigrant protesters that he has paid more taxes than all of them combine, and that he was there to protest the holding of undocumented immigrants at the Murrieta CBP facility. Rivera tweeted, "I'm backkkkk gringos!!!!" His young daughter also accompanied Rivera to the protest. She fell yesterday during the protest, hit her head and fainted momentarily, but Rivera later said, she was alright.
One of the gringos told Rivera that he was an illegal and should go back home. Rivera is a U.S. Citizen.
Most of those being transported were young mothers and fathers with children and no undocumented criminals were being moved to Murrieta, according city officials.
Murrieta city and Riverside County officials oppose for the federal government to transport undocumented immigrants to the border patrol station in Murrieta. Mayor Alan Long in a news conference on Monday stated, that the city was able to stop the federal government in two occasions from transporting 500 immigrants and another 300 due to the lack of space.
The Murrieta facility apparently was not ready to hold a large number of undocumented immigrants and the buses were ordered to the San Diego area, according to CBP.
Rivera using his Twitter and Facebook account has called on his fans to join the protest and send President Barack H. Obama a message that he promised immigration reform and where is it?  
A Murrieta Town Hall meeting at the Murrieta Mesa High School to discuss the transportation of undocumented immigrants to a CBP facility is scheduled for this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.  Rivera and other protesters plan to stage a protest at the school meeting.
Rivera on Tuesday tweeted, "MR.OBAMA WHERE IS OUR REFORM YOU PROMISED US !!!

Rivera has asked his lawyers to look into the spitting incident that was captured by news agencies and a complaint against the man could be filed by Rivera. In some states its a felony to spit at a person.
