Texas Mayors had a conference yesterday in Austin which had two recommendations for stemming the tide of illegal immigration. First, widen The Rio Grande, second, add alligators to it. This will both discourage attempts, and remove unwanted brave souls from making it across.
"Who will actually even want to try to swim it when they see the gators?" was the comment most often heard in the room.
When Hugo Chavez heard it, he said the Texas Mayors should shut up. When Bill O'Reilly heard it, he indicated it showed a lot of common sense on the part of mayors everywhere. Mrs. Clinton said,"I understand why they are for it, but that doesn't mean I am for it, nor does it mean I am against it, it is really up to state governors to decide what we should do about that. It shows our great diversity though, one state issues drivers' licenses to them, the other tries to get gators to eat them. What a country!"
"The beauty of the plan is that alligators are protected by environmental regulations, and the river would become a protected habitat, and if one of those illegal aliens should ever try to harm a gator, we will lock them up and throw away the key!", according to Walker, Texas Ranger.
Governor Rick Perry had no comment, just kind of rolled his eyes and walked away.
