Protesters both pro and anti-immigration descend on small Arizona town as they battle over transfer of 40 undocumented children
Sheriff Paul Babeu in Oracle, Ariz., said the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths
Approximately 50 pro-immigration supporters showed up as did roughly 50 rooting deportation
Anger has been spreading since a massive surge in unaccompanied children crossing the border illegally began more than a month ago
In 2012, Sheriff Babeu was accused by his ex-boyfriend, an illegal immigrant, of threatening him with deportation; Babeu was later cleared of any wrongdoing
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said he is working with federal health officials to help find temporary shelters for some of the immigrants
