Guerra & Johnson, P.C.

San Diego Immigration Attorney Brian Johnson of Guerra & Johnson, P.C. was interviewed on the Los Angeles NBC evening news about what is likely to happen to the undocumented immigrants who were recently turned away by protesters in Murrieta, California. The July 2, 2014 broadcast news segment that included legal commentary by Attorney Johnson was posted on the news station’s website with an accompanying article titled “Undocumented Immigrants Turned Away from Murrieta Leave San Ysidro.”*

The NBC broadcast and online news stories covered the aftermath of a recent incident in which protesters in Murrieta blocked a road, forcing buses filled with undocumented immigrants to turn around and instead head to the San Ysidro border station. The broadcast segment focused on a border patrol station in Imperial Beach—one of the four San Diego County locations where the immigrants were reportedly rerouted for processing.

Attorney Johnson is shown in the segment explaining what the projected next steps are for these immigrants. The lawyer told NBC that, because of delays, it could be anywhere from a few months to a couples of years before the foreign nationals would actually go before an immigration judge to have their futures in the U.S. decided. NBC reported that many of the immigrant families are believed to have crossed the border in efforts to flee extreme violence in countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.
