'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

I read The Associated Press news story “$2.4 billion in aid pledged for war-torn Syrians” , which says the U.S. government is going to give another $380 million in aid to Syria. What a crock.

Federal officials provide the very best health care for themselves but can't provide free health care to American citizens or take care of crumbling bridges and roads. But they can give millions to foreign countries, probably enriching the wealth there.
