'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.

‘Musts' for America

Here we are, 320 million Americans going about blindly.

We've allowed President Obama to gut our treasury. When he took office, our national debt was $10 trillion; it is now $17.5 trillion and growing.

A depression is in the making. My youth was spent during the Great Depression of the 1920s and '30s. It was horrible.

We have a Congress composed largely of bloated, self-serving politicians letting this happen. Obama makes his own laws as he sees fit and dares them to stop him.

He has two years to go in which to bankrupt this country and that is where we are headed. It is time for us to send him the message, “Straighten up or we impeach.”

America must stop trying to rule the world, stop sending our dollars abroad to those countries that hate us, spend our money on our own poor and hungry people, stop the waste and chastise the wasters. Clean up Washington.

God bless America.
