'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.

Who's responsible?

All of a sudden, “tens of thousands” of unaccompanied children are crossing our southern border illegally. All indications are that we are unable to handle the situation.

This didn't occur coincidentally. Such a mass movement of kids from various countries takes months of planning, considerable funding and some experienced logistical support.

We had better find out who is behind this attack on our country because it is succeeding and we seem to have neither the means nor the will to protect our borders against it.
