'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.

Re. Ellen Shar's letter “Incomprehensible & disrespectful” (Aug. 4) and others who wrote in support of Joni Campbell's letter “Incomprehensible hatred” (July 21): Please pay attention to the following comments.

The office of the president of the United States has become a joke, mostly because it has been ignored by the other world leaders and become a global disgrace. There is a lack of leadership — both domestically and internationally — by its current occupant.

Four Americans were murdered at the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, and workers there were sworn to silence. No need for President Obama to interrupt a golf game or fundraising trip when Benghazi “really doesn't matter.”

Think about the following: Shariah law, the Muslim Brotherhood, racism, scandals in the IRS and VA, illegal immigration.

Obama is being blocked by the U.S. Constitution and its ideology. His “divide-and-conquer” ideology doesn't work well here in America, as reflected by his low approval ratings.

When the president and his cronies can decide which laws to enforce and which to ignore, welcome to the world of make-believe.

Real people in the real world compromise daily and help each other. We follow the laws handed down by our forefathers and parents. They left us a fair and united country that is still a great place, under God, to live, love and raise kids with similar ideologies.

I'm not a Republican, but I'll need to act like one when we need to salvage America the Beautiful.
