Murrieta, California (CNN) Protesters in Murrieta, California turned back three buses Tuesday loaded with undocumented migrants.

The buses were trying to drop the illegal immigrants at the California border patrol station there.

But the demonstrators, waving American flags, forced them back.

Residents are angry with the way the federal government is handling the crisis.

There's no word where the buses are heading next.

The Obama administration is trying to gain the upper hand on a humanitarian crisis unfolding along the US-Mexico border.

Thousands of undocumented people, many unaccompanied minors, have been streaming over the border in recent months.
