'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.

Crisis management

It seems that our country moves from one crisis to another: the terrorist attack in Benghazi, which killed four Americans; Superstorm Sandy on the East Coast; the school shooting in Connecticut; and the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon. We also have North Korea threatening to attack us with a nuclear missile. Among this tumult, it's reassuring to know that our president was working hard on a bill to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. But since criminals don't obey gun laws, the only people affected by this legislation would have been legal gun owners.

Both of our U.S. senators, Bob Casey and Pat Toomey, voted for this bill, but it failed to pass. We know President Obama was disappointed by the outcome and will try to bypass Congress and limit our Second Amendment rights, possibly by executive order.
