WTF? Paris to pay immigrants to return

While the US polarizes itself with talk of big fences, "Amnesty", and a complex array of temporary-guest-workers (aka indentured servants) and visas, other countries are thinking "outside the box". Have too many immigrants? Why not pay them to go home? That's what France is doing.

New Immigration Minister Brice Hortefeux said a family with two children would be paid 6,000 euros (£4,068) to return to their country.
Gotta love those French.
