SAN DIEGO - Homeland Security buses carrying migrant children and families have been rerouted to a customs and border facility in San Diego after American flag-waving protesters blocked the group from reaching a suburban processing center.

The buses were followed Tuesday by half a dozen news crews to the San Diego facility that's within view of the Mexico border.

The busses made the trek to the site after protesters prevented them from entering a border patrol center in suburban Murrieta, about an hour north of San Diego.

The migrants had been flown to Southern California for processing to help alleviate a crunch on the border in Texas after thousands of Central American children and families fled violence in those nations.

Murrieta Mayor Alan Long urged residents in his city to protest the arrival of the migrants, who were not expected to be released in the city.
