'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.

President Obama returned to Washington on Sunday and signed the legislation authorizing $9.7 billion to aid victims of Superstorm Sandy.

Congress passed the measure on Friday while the president was vacationing with his family in Hawaii.

States hit hard by the October storm are seeking $60 billion in federal aid.

The $9.7 billion will replenish the National Flood Insurance Program, allowing the government to meet obligations to homeowners who paid for coverage.
