'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.

The day America died

America was founded on the principle that all people shall live in freedom and liberty. Today our freedoms are being taken away from us.

Freedom of speech is being stomped out. If someone disagrees with the government, you are retaliated against.

The mainstream media suppress the truth.

No longer do we have the freedom to practice our religion because Christians are being chastised and the government is forcing Christians to go against their religious beliefs.

The government is slowly eliminating our right to bear arms. Our military, the protectors of our nation, is being dismantled, making America more vulnerable to our enemies.

Under President Obama, we'll sign treaties with the United Nations, putting Americans under its laws regarding guns, the Internet and offshore oil drilling. America will no longer be a free nation. We will be ruled by the U.N.

Businesses will not have the freedom to hire and run their companies as they want because the unions will force Obama's “Card Check” on them.

To think about all those brave men and women for generation after generation who fought and gave up their lives so that America could be the land of freedom and prosperity have died for nothing. America is being destroyed.

How did we get to this point? It is because of greed and lazy people who don't want to work and want everything handed to them for free. These people will get their free stuff, but is it worth the cost of losing our freedoms?

It will go down in history that Nov. 6, 2012, was the day America died!
