Immigrants arrive in San Diego by plane, are taken to San Ysidro

A charter plane carrying immigrants who are in this country illegally arrived at San Diego's Lindbergh Field on Friday evening. Three Homeland Security buses showed up a few minutes later, trailed by  numerous law enforcement vehicles.

Federal officials had said earlier in the week that 140 immigrants detained while crossing the border into Texas would arrive Friday. But since the blockade by protesters Tuesday in Murrieta, officials have declined to provide information about the movement of the immigrants.

However, according to a law enforcement source, the latest group to arrive in California was taken to a Border Patrol facility in San Ysidro for processing.
