Last Friday afternoon, a group of people described by CBS News’ San Francisco bureau as “dozens of undocumented immigrants and immigrants’ rights advocates” rallied to successfully stop a bus. The bus did stop; and its cargo of criminals was delayed in reaching its ultimate destination south of the border.
