'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, July 19, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

Dear Mr. President and Congress:

Don't go back to Iraq. We've already lost over 4,000 young men and women, wonderful young lives, and for what?

Try explaining a return to Iraq to the affected mothers and fathers, wives and husbands and sisters and brothers. The 4,000-plus lost lives could have been our leaders — doctors, humanitarians and teachers. We will never know.

We spent a fortune training those in the Iraqi army, only to see them run and throw their uniforms away. They don't deserve our help anymore, and not one drop of American blood should be spilled there.

Listen to the voice of your people.
