'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.

Truth is upsetting

This is in response to the letter “Unleavened bile” (Oct. 20) from Jim Harger, regarding my letter “Welfare moochers” (Oct. 14).

I'm sorry I stepped on Mr. Harger's sensitive toes. I see that the truth has upset him; it usually does to those who are guilty of an offense they themselves have committed.

Some people just can't handle truth. I prefer to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie.
