'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
Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

After reading Peg Bittner's screed “Forcing their beliefs” , I almost fell out of my chair in disbelief and amazement. The Trib highlighted the quote, “That decision is made by you and your situation, not the employer, and not the clergy at church. You decide on your personal care!”

She also opines that the Catholic Church and employers are “forcing” their beliefs on us.

Oh, really! What planet does Ms. Bittner live on?

I am a practicing Catholic, and the church has never “forced” me or my wife or daughters to choose the type of health care we use, nor has my employer, US Airways. But I can educate her on what does: ObamaCare !

This monstrosity “forces” us to give up our own plans and doctors, even if we like them, and “forces” us to buy insurance we don't need or want, at a higher price.

We were told we had to pass ObamaCare before we could see what's in it. And now a majority of Americans believe our president lied to us on this issue. Period!
