'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.

Vice President Joe Biden will attend the Pittsburgh St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, the campaign to re-elect President Obama announced today.

Biden, who is Irish, will greet spectators as part of a campaign event. Volunteers will register voters, recruit other volunteers and hand out "O'Bama" campaign stickers and placards.

The parade, which organizers bill as the second-largest in the nation with 23,000 participants and 200 marching units, begins at 10 a.m. It starts on Liberty Avenue, runs the length of Grant Street and down the Boulevard of the Allies to Stanwix Street. More than 100,000 spectators are expected.

Biden last visited Pittsburgh on Nov. 4 when he spoke at the University of Pittsburgh on the importance of higher education.
