'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, March 1, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

This is in response to Jack Juris' letter “Putin not ‘rootin'-tootin” , which was a reply to my letter “Political girliemen.” Mr. Juris needs to open his eyes.

The America (founded as a constitutional republic, not a democracy) he “sees” doesn't exist. We both live in the good ol' U.S.S.A. — The United Socialist States of America.

We have a socialist president who, to further his agenda, consistently thumbs his nose at the Constitution, believing he has the power to interpret the law of the land. He also has plenty of blood on his hands — Fast and Furious, Benghazi.

We have our own KGB, the NSA/CIA, which spy on everyone worldwide because they can get away with it. We also have a video producer still sitting in jail for allegedly causing the Benghazi attack. The attack on our Libyan embassy was a planned terrorist attack; it wasn't caused by a video.

As Hillary Clinton said when testifying before a congressional panel investigating the four American deaths in Benghazi: “What difference does it make?”

Considering the direction of our country, I'll say it again: Putin for president, 2016.
