MURRIETA -- 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.

Opponents of illegal immigration had gathered in Murrieta to stop Friday's planned transfer of Central American illegal aliens, as they did earlier this week. A pro-amnesty counter-demonstration was organized in response.

The illegal aliens, many of them unaccompanied children, are being brought from overcrowded Texas detention facilities for processing in California.

In addition, Breitbart News obtained photographs of torn-up flags that pro-amnesty demonstrators had impaled on a fence.

Bonnie Lewis, an anti-immigration activist, told Breitbart News that she saw one of the pro-amnesty activists dragging an American flag on the ground.

"I said: 'Hey, don't do that.' He said: 'That's where it belongs,'" she said.

Another anti-illegal immigration activist said that pro-amnesty demonstrators called her a "f***ing whore" i Spanish, and shouted, "F*** America!"

FIVE COUNTER-PROTESTERS ARRESTED During Tense Standoff at Murrieta Illegal Immigrant Rally (Video)

NBC Los Angeles reported:

Five people were arrested Friday as crowds of protesters and immigrant rights supporters gathered outside a Southern California Border Patrol facility where another convoy of buses carrying undocumented immigrants was expected to arrive.

Tensions were running high as three women and two men were arrested after scuffles broke out about 4 p.m. between demonstrators in Murrieta. Police said the altercation began when a woman on one side of the crowd pushed a person from the other side. An officer who witnessed the shoving stepped in to make an arrest.

“At one point in time, at least one of the females jumped on the back of the officer,” said Murrieta Police Cpt. Dennis Vrooman.

Four people were taken into custody for allegedly trying to remove someone from the custody of a police officer, Vrooman said.

Border patrol agents set up cones and a stop sign along a road in Murrieta, a community of about 106,000 people about 80 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles, as a crowd camped out in anticipation of the buses. One person was detained early Friday for interfering with a police officer after refusing to stay behind a line of yellow police tape, according to authorities.

Many of those opposed to the transfer of the undocumented immigrants to California from Texas carried anti-immigration signs and American flags. Other members of the crowd voiced support for the immigrant families, whose transfer and release created a strong divide between those who want to help and those who don’t want them here at all.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

I'm getting so tired of this crap.  Anyone that feels that America deserves to have her flags burned, ripped and dragged on the ground, needs to get the hell out of my country! 

People say they are coming here for the opportunities - but what opportunities?  If you hate America that much, is it the opportunity to be able to define your own destiny - or do you value the opportunity to bring her down to third world status?

The word "ILLEGAL" should be in every description of these activists.

It should never, ever be implied that people who don't want a flood of illegals invading our country don't want legal immigration.

There is a HUGE difference between the two.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

You made me notice something:

anti-immigration

pro-amnesty

A strange way to construct that sentence indeed. Makes me wonder about the authors own motives and interests in the matter.
