'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, Nov. 16, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Conservatives sometimes define many of their cohorts as “former liberals who've been mugged.” Now, collectivist-statists who avidly promoted the Affordable Care Act (ACA, or ObamaCare) are being mugged by the reality of their own creation.

The monstrous ACA is theirs and theirs alone; they own it.

So, it will be interesting to see if our nation's socialist Democrats also “own up” to their own creation, or simply try, as usual, to shift blame onto anything or anyone other than themselves and President Obama for their creation's manifold failures, deceits and “glitches.”

Even if the computerized portal is fixed, the whole collectivist, “progressive” ideology behind it is an abomination, deserving only to be strangled in its crib.
