'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 12, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

With the country already $17.5 trillion in debt, the last thing we need is to start taking care of all the illegal immigrants — men, women and children — who have gotten a free pass into this country.

I, for one, am tired of working to pay for all the loafers we have now, so I have a simple cost-cutting solution for all the illegals coming here.

Instead of giving them food, shelter, clothing and what have you, I suggest we save all that money and just put them all on a 747 or Army cargo plane and fly them all back to somewhere in Central America. They can find their way to wherever from there.

It's cost-cutting and still humanitarian, since we aren't letting them be here without food, shelter and a place to sleep.
