'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. 24, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

The hubbub over U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's citizenship is just that — meaningless noise.

My son was born in Germany in 1954. His mother was German; I am a native-born American citizen.

He has a German birth certificate because he was born in a German hospital, but he also has a U.S. Certificate of Citizenship issued at date of birth.

We have to stop wasting time on “gotcha” talk and have meaningful discussions and honest debates on the real issues facing the country.
