'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

According to Reuters (emphasis added), “The Obama administration said it would boost the ranks of immigration judges, lawyers and asylum officers to quickly decide what happens to people apprehended at the border and to return them to their home countries.”

Why do we need “immigration judges, lawyers and asylum officers”? Just send these people back. They have no right to be here.

Would you tolerate an immigration judge, lawyer or asylum officer dithering over what to do if 15 of these people suddenly descended on your home? What's the difference?

You'd kick them out or call the police to kick them out if you could not do so with a baseball bat.

We should also. Why else have a border or laws for that sake?
