'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 “Religious freedom in U.S. nears extreme challenge” (July 4 and TribLIVE.com): Why is it that freedom of religion becomes freedom from Christian religion every time there is a contest?

I refer to the Connellsville Ten Commandments controversy and challenge all Christians to stand firm, demanding that the monument be allowed to remain where it is, uncovered and publicly displayed.

We allow others who have migrated to our country, most after the monument was placed, to enjoy freedom to worship as they please. Why then should restrictions fall upon those whom the Founders represented, in a nation founded on Christian ideals?

If we were the minority, we would not be challenged! We no longer accept and protect the minority, but bow down and are governed by them.

I did not celebrate this Independence Day. My freedoms are being lost and given away. We are being destroyed by ourselves, just as Lincoln predicted so many years ago.
