'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
Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, 8:57 p.m.
 

I coincidentally received in the mail a New York Times subscription offer on the same day that a “This Just In” item about The New York Times Magazine's “Planet Hillary” cover was published ( “Planet Hillary? Magazine cover gives some the creeps” ). I took full advantage of the opportunity to respond to the subscription offer. Here's how I put it to The Times.

“Your offer opened the door for this conservative patriot's salvo: The New York Times' misconstrued report on Benghazi to save face for Hillary Clinton is par for a state that has overdosed on liberal progressivism. By all means include U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Times columnist Paul Krugman, etc., with Hillary and blast them off to another planet to detoxify New York of its pushers of socialism. And while you're at it, invite California Gov. Jerry Brown and his liberal progressive cronies to climb aboard for the launch.”

It's inconceivable that the state harboring the Statue of Liberty could become so “progressive” and hellbent on destroying what Lady Liberty stands for and beckons. Gadzooks!

Incidentally, the state of the union is lousy, thanks to undermining by liberal “progressives.”
