Illegal Immigrants to Pay Own Way Home; Howard for Pujols

The Associated Press reports 37 illegal immigrants busted in the raid at the Agriprocessors meat-packing plant in Postville, Iowa, will have to pay their own way back to their home countries. Here's the story.

What do you think of this? Since they came to this country illegally, should they then be responsible for paying their way to deportation? Or do you think since they may not be working (and would have no income), should U.S. taxpayers or charities help pay their way? Do you have some other choice?


ESPN reports the Philadelphia Phillies may offer 1st baseman Ryan Howard in exchange for the St. Louis Cardinals' 1st baseman, Albert Pujols. Are you serious? Howard is a native St. Louisan and he would likely require less money than Pujols, who is the best player in the game and becoming one of the greatest of all-time. But, seriously? A 1 for 1 swap? No freaking way!
