'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.

The road to communism

Evalyn Bodick hit the nail on the head in her letter “Not affordable health care” (Oct. 6). If this so-called affordable health care reform is so great, why are federal employees and certain groups exempt from participating in it?

President Obama continues to preach from the presidential pulpit “Do as I say, not as (we) do.” The health care mess is another nail in the coffin of American citizens.

The president and his arrogant, misguided followers in government are on a mission to fool the citizens into giving up their rights for “the good of every man.” Then the government exempts its members from being part of its “good for every man” scheme.

History repeats itself. Those who are unfamiliar with “The Communist Manifesto” should read it for a quick history lesson. Is our country on the road to repeat the ugly history of eastern Europe when the communists took power?

Sound crazy? You be the judge.
