'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. 19, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

While the ObamaCare train wrecks the economy, the passengers are being directed to assigned seats in coach cars with fares that have skyrocketed since they got on board.

The boxcars are full of empty promises and crates labeled “top secret,” containing “bronze,” “silver” and “gold” health insurance plans that have exploding deductibles.

The chief engineer put the locomotive on autopilot while ignoring flashing red lights so he could play a round of golf. The conductor and crew decided to take a long lunch at the last stop.

Dispatch controllers decided, 5-4, to allow the train to run toward an unfinished bridge. Hospitals and health-care workers are jumping off.

Moments before the train will derail, a third of the country slept well, knowing passengers in the caboose were getting a free ride.

Not surprisingly, the media will reap huge profits from commercials during 24/7 coverage of the crash.
