'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
Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014, 8:55 p.m.
 

I couldn't agree more with the last paragraph of the Jeff Bergner opinion column, “A deeper look into the IRS isn't pretty,” in the Aug. 2 VND.

Bergner wrote: “It is long past time for the appointment of a special prosecutor to bring some accountability to the out-of-control, self-dealing agency that is the IRS.”

There is but one major roadblock and that is U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. The very finest, impartial prosecutor could be appointed and allowed to select his/her own staff, but the special prosecutor still answers to the attorney general.

I fear all we'd hear is the same old “ongoing investigation” excuse that Holder uses for every other scandal. I believe we'll keep hearing them until the current administration is out of office.
