'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. 28, 2014, 8:55 p.m.
 

Why should we reward politicians for doing the job they do against us? ​If someone steals $3 and returns $1, does that qualify that person to be recognized with bridges, roads, golf courses, etc. named after him?​

Politics is a self-serving, corrupt business enterprise. The only thing that should be done to those who participate in corruption is to prosecute them. Where are the IRS, FBI, state police and, in some cases, Homeland Security and the CIA when it comes to the corruption that continues?
