For the second time this week, a plane carrying undocumented immigrants from Central America arrives in San Diego. The plane touched down Friday evening at Lindbergh Field from Texas. More than one hundred undocumented migrants, including babies, children, and their parents got off the plane. They were taken directly by bus to a border patrol facility in San Ysidro avoiding the large group of protesters that had gathered in Murrieta awaiting their arrival. Earlier in the week, buses carrying undocumented immigrants were met by angry protesters who were able to successfully block the buses from getting through. SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED PROTESTER, SAYING: "They come into our country, they're bullying us and they're trying to get our stuff." SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED PROTESTER, SAYING: "These children deserve compassion and humanity ok, they should never be deported." On Friday, police were able to keep the protesters off the road. But several people were arrested when a fight erupted in the crowd.
