Murrieta: Pro-Amnesty Protesters Burn US Flags, 5 Arrested


The media is heavily filtering and slanting the news about the anti-amnesty protests in Murrieta. The pro-illegal alien protesters always get the final word and the stories emphasize that opponents of illegal immigration are “bringing shame” on the town.

The real story is different.

The protests against Obama’s dumping of illegal aliens have worked insofar as no more buses have come. However large amounts of pro-amnesty protesters arrived, many of them associated with radical groups.

The media is careful to interview local opponents of “xenophobia” rather than the La Raza types. And it’s obvious why. The La Raza types have been doing the sort of things you expect.

An American flag has reportedly been burned by pro-amnesty protesters near the Murrieta Border Patrol station on America’s Independence Day. Breitbart News obtained the above photograph, which shows a burnt flag on the ground, from an anti-illegal immigration activist who was monitoring the pro-amnesty demonstration.

5 arrests were also made.

Four people remained jailed Saturday for allegedly trying to prevent Murrieta police from arresting a person near the Fourth of July immigration standoff at the Murrieta Border Patrol Station.

Police said a protester jumped on the back of a Murrieta police officer who was trying to arrest someone linked to a reported assault, some distance away from the main protest at the Border Patrol station.

Janet Mathieson, 22, of Claremont was being questioned by police about the reported assault, and the officer was going to arrest her for obstructing the officer in the course of his investigation, a police report said.

According to the police account, that prompted Pouyan Bokaei, 33, of Maryland, to try to free Mathieson from arrest. The officer let go of the woman as he tried to arrest Bokaei, according to the police account.

Mathieson then reportedly jumped on the officer’s back, police said.

More police arrived, and while Mathieson and Bokaei were being arrested, three others jumped into the fray to free the first two, police said. They were identified as Jacqueline Sanchez, 26, of Los Angeles, Jessica Rey, 25, of Menifee, and Salvador Chavez, 24, of Los Angeles.

Lefty sites are filled with calls to protest and free them, making it clear what their political affiliation is. On social media, these calls are accompanied by hashtags such as ‪#‎noborders‬ ‪and #‎humanitynotnationality‬. Anti-amnesty social media claimed that the amnesty protester had assaulted an elderly woman, presumably one of the Murrieta US protesters.

The media continues characterizing American protesters in Murrieta as xenophobic, but refuses to address the identities and agendas of the pro-amnesty protesters who appear to be linked to radical left-wing groups, including Occupy movements and various anarchists.

    Let them keep it up. The last time they staged these anti-America antics, it backfired badly.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      let’s hope it does this time

    • Jon Henri Matteau

      Just like the stand-off in Nevada, yay, oh don’t forget Waco, yay.


    Pro-Amnesty, burning American flags?

    Like Lynn Stewart passing messages for her client, the Blind Snake.

  • Pete

    I was afraid those who were arrested were anti-amnesty.

    But the Left could not help itself. They had to be as loco as they want to be.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      they always are

  • Hard Little Machine

    Isn’t that retarded? They’re coming HERE.

  • JackSpratt

    Yeah, why don’t you moderate my comment, FPM.

  • Drakken

    Keep it up wetbacks, sooner or later the American public is going to tire of talking and start shooting.

    Dammit, I’m stuck on another radical right-wing thread. Let’s, first, I can’t believe half of this editorial considering its source. The native left-wing is actually grounded in logic and common sense. To read that pro-American, pro immigration would desecrate a flag that they support is beyond me. I think that this is spun to make the right-wing, fascist, anti-Constitutionalist look better. At least no one invoked any bogus religious rhetoric in the comments.

      The “native left wing” is grounded in stupidity. Marx was an idiot. Communism/socialism is an epic fail. Capitalism is the only way any of it can even exist – as a parasite.

      [The native left-wing is actually grounded in logic and common sense.]

      The native left-wing seeks to tax people to oblivion to support the takers!!

    • Daniel Greenfield

      “. To read that pro-American, pro immigration would desecrate a flag that they support is beyond me.

      Since when do anarchists and Mexican nationalists support the American flag?

    • Drakken

      The left and common sense and logic in the same sentence is an oxymoron, and useful idiots like you with your feelings are a matter of policy. You effing dumbazzes wouldn’t know what a Constitution looks like if it bit you. Your stuck on stupid and the time of playing nice with you bloody subversive communists is coming to an end.

  • Elizabeth Cape Cod

    Any pro-amnesty moron who burns a flag needs to be catapulted over the border.

  • John Freethinker

    Note well those hashtags. #noborders, #humanitynotnationality. What these protesters really want is to dissolve the USA.

  • Jon Henri Matteau

    Communism in its “truest” form, not socialism- read a little more, requires a politburo of an elite, a small group, see “small government” to dictate the wills of the masses. Do you “patriots” not realize that is what your republican ideals are striving for. Read other sources, books, media, educational forums before you decide such a narrow view.

    • Drakken

      Socialism is nothing but communism with a smiley face. Our Govt needs an enema.

    • jthurman1

      Absolute ignorance, or a lie, but either way your assertion is absurd.

      • Jon Henri Matteau

        Political Science 101. A person should check definitions, before they jump to conclusions.

    Ahh – the sound of crickets at the White House is loudest in the morning. We live in a surreal version of America these days. So given this surrealism, perhaps I can be forgiven by in wishing I had the power of Bill Mumy in the Twilight Zone episode It’s a Good Life. I think I’d put Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid and Holder out into a corn field, far far away – and I’d make it a very cold rainy day.
