How About Putting Piranhas in the Rio Grande?

Republican Congressional candidate Tom Mullins apparently discussed in a recent radio interview the idea of securing the U.S. border with Mexico by placing line mines along the border. However, Mullins apparently is backing away from the concept.

According to a story today in the Associated Press, Mullins he Republican opponent of Rep. Ben Ray Lujan said in a May 18 interview with KNMX radio in Las Vegas, N.M., that "the U.S. could mine the border, install barbed wire and post signs directing would-be border jumpers to cross legally at designated checkpoints."

Mullins told the wire service that "it was a suggestion he'd heard while campaigning."
