WASHINGTON, DC (NBC) - Tensions are rising at the border.

The Obama administration is trying to figure out what to do with hundreds of women and children from Central America who were blocked from entering a facility in California.

The first wave of women and children are flown in from Texas, and blocked by protesters in Southern California.

In Tuscon, Arizona, another 280 migrant children were transferred without incident. Most are from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

Secretary of State John Kerry asked Central American leaders to tell parents it's not safe to send children across the border alone.

President Obama admits he can only do so much without Congress.

With the president and Congress at odds, and no action on Capitol Hill this year, advocates worry - what's the plan for these children?

For now, the 140 women and children who were turned away in California are being taken care of by a faith-based organization.

The government says most will be transferred to final destinations outside California.
