'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
Saturday, June 29, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

I am not comfortable with the bum's rush to pass a comprehensive immigration bill. (Smells like the “pass now, read later” ObamaCare bill.) I think this supposed bipartisan crowd should put the brakes on immigration and rush through a separate bill to make English the official spoken and written language of America (no amendments or attachments, applies to all 50 states and D.C.).

If they want to show how sincere they are, this shouldn't be hard to do. Democrats are afraid to antagonize their voter blocs (Hispanics, unions, etc.). Can they unite in a bipartisan effort to pass this official-English bill?
