'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.
 

In response to Richard P. Iezzi's letter “Antics of a shutdown I” (Oct. 4 and TribLIVE.com): Why is it that when we had a Republican president (George W. Bush) and a Democrat House speaker (Nancy Pelosi), everything that went wrong with our country was the president's fault?

Then we had a Democrat president (Barack Obama) and a Democrat House Speaker (Pelosi), and everything that went wrong with our country was Bush's fault.

Now we have a Democrat president in his second term and a Republican House speaker (John Boehner), and everything that's wrong with our country is the Republican speaker's fault?

I see a pattern here. No matter what is wrong, it's the Republicans' fault.

Obama should do his job instead of running around the country, bashing everyone who disagrees with him and ordering closings of our national parks, veterans memorials, even things that are privately funded.

The hypocrisy of the left never ceases to amaze me.
