'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.

Pat's full crock

Perhaps the Trib should consider firing Pat Buchanan as a columnist. His column “Irreconcilable conflict” (Sept. 19 and TribLIVE.com) is a full crock.

He claims our Founders didn't believe in democracy. George Washington could have been the “king” of our new republic, or at least served as president until he died in 1799.

Buchanan assumes the 1.5 billion Muslims in the world will eventually overcome our civilization because our numbers are declining, and a tombstone awaits us.

A tombstone awaits everyone. If we, the USA, wanted to, we could unleash death to everyone in the Middle East in a single day.

If the Muslims could do this to us, they would. Our demise may come from an unwillingness to defend ourselves.
