'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

General Motors is recalling nearly 293,000 Chevrolet Cruze compact cars nationally because the power-assisted brakes can fail.

The company said the recall affects Cruzes made in Lordstown, Ohio, from the 2011 and 2012 model years. The cars have 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engines and 6T-40 six-speed automatic transmissions.

GM said the power brake boosters can fail and drivers may have to put extra pressure on the pedals to stop the cars. GM said Cruze brake problems have caused 27 low-speed crashes but no injuries.

Dealers will replace a switch in the power brake vacuum pipe assembly for free.
