'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, Oct. 12, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

I'm just sick of everyone blaming one party or the other for all the problems in government. Don't you people realize that the problem is you?

If you vote strictly for one party or the other without regard for the integrity of the candidate, then you are the one putting and keeping a “bum” in office, regardless of which bum or which office.

When your officials refuse to negotiate, cooperate or meet deadlines, you need to keep track and vote accordingly in the next election.

I personally believe (like the Founders) that politics should not be a career!

Those elected should not serve more than two terms, and then they should return to their chosen professions without collecting a pension from the government. That in itself would solve many of the problems.

Second, there are no “breaks” until the business at hand is settled.

I could go on, but if you don't do your job, don't complain about others not doing theirs!
