Federal agents will be arriving in Murrieta, Calif., the site of ongoing protests against the recent flood of illegal immigrants into the town, on Monday to quell protesters, Breitbart has learned.

Murrieta has been in the news since June 1 when protesters blocked a convoy of buses carrying illegal immigrants to a local border patrol station. (RELATED: Hispanics Split Over Obama’s Border Meltdown)

Protesters have not left yet, and federal agents are supposedly fed up with American citizens being concerned about their hometown.

John Henry, a Murrieta resident for over two decades, was told by local officers that the feds will be barricading streets.

“We’re being told that federal Marshals or ICE will be here in the next few days and that they are bringing riot gear,” Henry said. “They’re apparently going to be blocking off the street with concrete blockades so that no vehicles can get through. The River County Sheriff’s Department showed up last night and brought a huge watch tower that shoots up into the air 35 feet.”

Henry expressed his frustration with the “benefits” illegal immigrants are receiving for breaking the law, while legal citizens would be “pulled over and ticketed” if they were to “roll through a stop sign.” These benefits, courtesy of the American taxpayer, include food, housing, education, vocational training and legal counsel. The illegals are then delivered to their relatives in the country, who are not checked to see if they are in the U.S. illegally. (RELATED: Border Meltdown: Obama Delivering 290,000 Illegals To U.S. Homes)

Local police officers have also reportedly warned protesters, hinting at potential danger. Jeremy Oliver, a resident of the neighboring town of Temecula, was told by an officer that “it’s going to get ugly.”

“The feds are pissed that they haven’t been able to use this facility. Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday–they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back.”
