'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.

Hillary Rodham Clinton told ABC News on Friday that she has donated all the money she was paid for speeches on college campuses during the past year and a half to her family's foundation.

“All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and lifesaving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation,” Clinton told Ann Compton of ABC News.

Clinton was in London promoting her book, “Hard Choices.”

The Washington Post reported this week that Clinton likely made more than $1 million for speaking at eight universities, including four public schools, during the past year.

The University of Connecticut, which just raised tuition by 6.5 percent, paid $251,250 from a donor fund for Clinton to speak on campus in April. Other examples include $300,000 to speak at the University of California at Los Angeles in March and $225,000 for a speech scheduled for October at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate has been paid for speeches at five other colleges, all of which declined to say how much they paid Clinton.

If the former secretary of State earned her standard fee of $200,000 or more, that would mean she took in at least $1.8 million in speaking income from universities in the past nine months.
