'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.

Warning to senators

To remind U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey of a few things:

• The Second Amendment clearly states that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

• Remember when Bill Clinton was president? There was a massive turnover in Congress because of the very unpopular, unwanted and mislabeled “assault weapons” ban.

• If you value your job, vote against anything that would restrict or hinder our God-given right to bear arms, including the so-called “nuclear option.”

• Do what's right; vote for freedom, not a feel-good measure that will only criminalize law-abiding citizens.

• Remember, your job is on the line.
