US flies 'illegal' Mexicans home


The quotation marks around "illegal" are there because these immigrants "crossed the border" without authorization, making their act against the "law."

I'd like to see the BBC expand this "careful" headline technique, creating headlines like "John Kerry 'says' he'll make a good president" or "the French 'claim' they're not all anti-semitic." Somehow I don't think that's going to happen.
