Merlene Davis: Immigrants deserve better treatment

As angry protesters shouted, "Go back home!" and "We don't want you here!" on Tuesday, three Homeland Security buses were turned away from entry to the U.S. Border Patrol station in Murrieta, Calif. When I closed my eyes and listened to the protesters, I couldn't help but be taken back to the first busloads of Freedom Riders who wanted to change the laws of the land that supported segregated travel facilities in the South. Those riders also were stopped and angrily ordered to go back where they came from.
