'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.

Regarding the news story “Proposal targets anonymous lawsuits” (March 28 and TribLIVE.com): State Rep. Tim Krieger, R-Delmont, claims to be a defender of the Constitution and a fiscal conservative. Yet he has no problem wasting time and money on an obviously unconstitutional ploy such as this nonsense?

If he wants to fight religious causes, he should resign his seat and become a theologian.

If he wants to continue as a state representative, he should do so. Here are a few suggestions as to how.

Work on issues like homelessness, veterans affairs, providing health care for our citizens who cannot afford it, helping to put food on the table for children who live below the poverty line, maybe raising employment numbers in our region.

Then, instead of keeping the Ten Commandments carved into a stone in a public place, he could actually appear to be someone who lives by them.

Work on some real issues for your constituents, Rep. Krieger — there are plenty to choose from.
