'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.

Letter to the Editor
Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

It's time that the media stop treating Gov. Corbett and Republicans so unfairly, especially when they constantly give a failing President Obama a free pass.

Corbett is a forward-thinking governor with a strong vision for Pennsylvania. Since the day he took office, he has been working to ensure that every Pennsylvanian who wants a job has a job.

As a resident of Western Pennsylvania, I can clearly see the results of his hard work and dedication to bringing new industry and innovation to the region. Just look at the Shell petrochemical complex. This facility that Corbett fought to bring to Beaver County will bring 20,000 new jobs to the area.

Corbett is the definition of a pro-jobs governor, with a strong record of job creation that's being recognized across the state. He received a Pittsburgh Business Times Energy Leadership Award this year. He's not just pro-jobs, he's pro-energy jobs, and energy jobs will make Pennsylvania a leader nationally in job creation and internationally in energy production.

Too bad Obama won't accomplish in eight years what our governor has done in two and a half.
