The root cause of undocumented immigration, whether from Mexico or Central America, is the poverty and lack of economic opportunity that have afflicted those nations as a result of failed economic policies - including their trade agreements with the United States. Those thousands of migrants - including unaccompanied minors - arriving at our border are not criminals trying to break the law. They are a warning sign that the collateral damage of so-called "free trade" agreements cannot always be found in closed factories and shuttered Main Street businesses in the United States.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The new ownership group of the San Francisco Giants finally got outfielder Barry Bonds under contract yesterday, completing the six-year, $43.75 million deal that current club owner Bob Lurie had refused to guarantee.Safeway CEO Peter Magowan, who heads up the group that is expected to take possession of the team in January, guaranteed the contract even if the sale of the club is not approved. In that event, Lurie apparently would have the option of assuming the contract or allowing Bonds to sign with another team, but in either case Bonds would be assured the full amount of the contract.

McDonogh's No. 1 football team put a dent in No. 4 Mount Saint Joseph's best start in 20 years Thursday night, feeding off its stellar defense for a 24-0 victory in the Eagles' first Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game. The host Eagles, the defending A Conference champions, scored 14 unanswered points in the first quarter, sparked by a couple of big defensive plays, to deal the Gaels their first loss of the season. On the Gaels' first drive, Eagles linebacker Wyatt Cook, last season's All-Metro Defensive Player of the Year, forced a fumble and defensive end Michael Cornwell recovered it. The Eagles needed just four plays to drive 54 yards for their first touchdown less than three minutes into the game.

We provided North Korea with the technology and materials to build nuclear plants for energy only, they promised not to build a bomb. They have tested seven bombs and have more. Now they are building ICBMs. Now, Iran says if we lift some sanctions, they will talk to the U.N. about not trying to make bombs. After top secret talks between the U.S. and Iran, the Obama administration went public with planned talks with the U.N. and Iran. The reason our talks were secret is we haven't had normal relations since they stormed our embassy and held our citizens hostage for 444 days.

It is hard to believe that the Democrats and Republicans can't come up with the following as a way to break the logjam in D.C.: The GOP agrees to this year's budget, the updated debt ceiling and the immigration reform law passed by the U.S. Senate. In return, the Democrats agree to delay the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate by a year (but people can still sign up; it just not mandatory), delete the 2.3 percent medical device tax and agree to a balanced 2015 budget with two-thirds through cuts and one-third through tax increases to get there.

Even before they signed it, a handful of Major League Baseball owners expressed deep misgivings about a 2005 agreement negotiated by Orioles owner Peter Angelos establishing conditions under which the Montreal Expos would move and become the Washington Nationals. The owners, all members of baseball's executive council, sounded like customers having second thoughts after buying something from an aggressive salesman. They questioned whether Major League Baseball ceded too much to the Orioles for their agreement to share the club's exclusive television territory, according to the minutes of a March 28, 2005, conference call released last week as an exhibit in a court case.

Ravens strong safety Matt Elam motioned with his hand in the opposite direction of the football as his eyes darted toward teammates trailing the play. Elam appeared lost at how to react Sunday when he failed to touch Taylor Gabriel down after the Cleveland Browns' wide receiver burst past him, allowing extra yardage after an already long reception. Confusion reigned in the Ravens' secondary during the 23-21 victory where Elam and teammates were frequently not on the same page.

Baltimore's spending panel voted unanimously Wednesday to change the Baltimore Arena's name to the Royal Farms Arena in exchange for about $1.2 million over five years. Under the terms of the agreement, the Baltimore-based convenience store chain — which is perhaps best known for its Western fries and fried chicken — would pay $250,000 annually to the city annually for five years. The deal would roughly triple the amount received by the city for the title sponsorship when it was known as 1st Mariner Arena . That agreement, approved in 2002, netted the city $75,000 a year before it expired at the end of 2012.

Football players sometimes get creative with their ankle tape. Instead of wrapping their feet before a game, they ask a trainer to loop white or brightly colored tape around the outside of the shoe in a way that obscures the shoe company's logo. Known as "spatting," it is considered a fashion statement by some and by others a safeguard against sprained ankles. But it better not occur at the University of Maryland. After an initial warning, the school would be liable for at least $160,000 for a second violation and a minimum of $240,000 for a third offense, according to the new contract between the university and Under Armour, its official outfitter.

This time last year, the Orioles were stuck in trade rumor central while seeking upgrades for their playoff run. No kidding. Ultimately, they swapped mediocre outfielders with the Arizona Diamondbacks while orchestrating one of the ugliest collapses of recent times. This year, there will be no teases; they are already resting comfortably in their customary fourth-place spot in the American League East. Again, they're linked to trade rumors, this time primarily as a seller. They would like to unload Javy Lopez, Kevin Millar, Jeff Conine, Rodrigo Lopez and LaTroy Hawkins for major league-ready players.
