(NBC NEWS) The Southern California city that became a flashpoint in the crisis over children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border is waiting to learn if the feds will try to send new busloads of undocumented immigrants — and whether the tensions on display earlier this week will flare up again.

Dozens of protesters blocked the road to Murrieta Tuesday and managed to turn away a bus headed for a processing center there, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has not told local officials if any more are coming.

But organizers of the initial demonstration — which featured people chanting “Go back home!” and angry confrontations with immigrant supporters — say they are ready to take to the streets again to stop the migrants from coming in.
