    US hikers convicted of illegally entering Iran to appeal their 8-year sentence in Iranian prison

    The lawyer for two Americans convicted of spying in Iran has said he will appeal against their eight-year sentences. The verdict shocked their families, who hoped to see them freed after more than two years already spent in Evin, Tehran's most notorious prison.

    Shane Bauer, 28, and Josh Fattal, 29, were arrested in 2009 on the border with Iraq, where they said they were hiking. They were found guilty of illegal entry and espionage at their closed trial, which ended on 31 July. The verdict is likely to further strain Iran's already poor relations with Washington.

    Maybe we should start sentencing people that illegally cross our borders.

    Let's go back to how it used to be. Teens took those jobs. I worked in the fields as a teenager. I did it for years. If that doesn't work we expand the worker visa program. Allow the ones that want to work to come over LEGALLY after a background check. It's asinine what a legal worker has to go through yet these others are being rewarded for flaunting the law.

    I think you are on to something there.

    And yes I've worked my share of minimum wage jobs. Thats wht you do as an unskilled laborer. You earn what you can while you better yourself.

    Just had to go for a hike near the border of IRAN? Sorry, but I can think of better places to be. I'm pretty sure there are some beautiful placed to hike right here in the USA.
