'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.

The picture of those five pious-looking people that accompanied the news story “Most back Holy Family's plan to house children who crossed border” didn't fool me. One of them, identified as Dave Ninehouser, gave them away with his homemade sign saying “Keep calm and turn off Fox.”

They are typical leftists who are trying to invoke sympathy and God in support of their political agenda, which is open borders. Being the leftists they are, they want people to believe that opposition to Holy Family Institute's plan would hurt these children in one way or another. There is no organized group or entity that I know of that would hurt these children, certainly not Fox News or its viewers. Yes, maligning the opposition is a tactic always employed by the leftists.
