The New York Times released a report Tuesday with claims President Donald Trump made extreme suggestions to slow border crossings.
The report says Trump once suggested shooting migrants in the legs to discourage illegal border crossings.
According to the paper, Trump made the remarks during a meeting in March and eventually abandoned the idea.
Anonymous officials also told the Times that the president also suggested adding trenches filled with snakes or alligators to his border wall.
The White House has not commented on the claims.
