'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, Sept. 14, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

This health-care debacle must be defunded! ObamaCare is already destroying the economy, forcing employers to lay off or force employees to go part-time. Employers cannot afford to cover their employees. Spouses are also not being covered by employer-provided insurance.

The left is circulating the falsehood that Republicans want to shut the government down. This is simply not true! Everything else will be funded, even programs Republicans are not fond of, except ObamaCare.

The American people have spoken. We do not want this train wreck to be implemented! We want it to be eventually repealed! Our representatives owe it to us to respect our wishes. We do not have time left to wait!
