'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, Aug. 10, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

I totally disagree with Robert Recklein's letter “Toomey talk” (July 18 and TribLIVE.com). I have communicated with U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., several times about several different issues and find him a very thorough thinker and a very compassionate man.

He looks carefully at both sides of each issue before casting his vote. Every vote he casts is rendered with very good reason.

I firmly believe that he really cares about common citizens like us and about our welfare; he is not the kind of senator who only cares about big shots or about money flowing into his pocket. He casts votes with a clear conscience, not just wanting to go with the flow to please certain people or to make himself look good. He does what he thinks is right.

Toomey is my kind of senator and I stand by him.
