Border Security

I don’t know how one could make it any more obvious that better border security is needed. A Republican congressional candidate decided to make a point by smuggling a elephant and a six piece mariachi band across the Rio Grande river.

A Pennsylvania congressional candidate and former reality-TV star used an elephant and a six-piece mariachi band for an elaborate political stunt designed to make a point about border security.

Raj Peter Bhakta, who appeared on The Apprentice, paraded an elephant and the band through the water near the mouth of the Rio Grande Tuesday.

Bhakta, who favors construction of a fence along the border, said he was in Brownsville to raise money when he saw half a dozen men swimming under one of the international bridges “with complete immunity” and decided to pull the stunt.

Reports that local Brownsville schools were compelled to offer free schooling to the elephant in its native language are apparently untrue.
