CNN’s Jim Acosta traveled to Texas ahead of President Donald Trump’s visit to the border and decided to go to the border to show that the president was wrong about was is happening and ended up showing that border walls work.

“Here are some of the steel slats that the president has been talking about, right here, as you can see, yes you can see through these slats to the other side of the U.S.-Mexico border,” Acosta said. “As we’re walking along here we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger, there are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence here in the McAllen, Texas area.”

Acosta continued, noting that there was “no sign of the national emergency” that Trump has warned about as he stood next to the wall.


In another video, Acosta showed what he said was an area of the border that shows fencing with barbed wire, writing: “All quiet on this stretch of the border ahead of Trump’s visit to McAllen TX area.”


In a third video, Acosta interviewed a local resident about whether or not the area was safe. The woman confirmed to Acosta that the area, which has border barriers, was safe.


A second local resident again confirmed to Acosta that the border wall protected area was safe.

“Jose has lived here in the McAllen TX area his whole life,” Acosta wrote. “He also tells me it is very safe here.”

    It is nice that they are feeling safe and comfortable, but what will happened when the next caravan gets here with 15000. people on it. They are bringing disease to the border plus parasites. They do make charges to the wall and luckily they get stopped, but what happens when you get a tsunami wave of people and they overrun the Border Patrol and officers. Now we have a problem and Texas has a mess of trouble coming their way. Most of the time I wish you would just shut your mouth up. You are a nuisance like a mosquito and you are trying to squash him.

    It doesn’t surprise me that Acosta, being the chief CNN idiot he is, can’t understand why the people feel safe and why there is no problem with illegals crossing over the boarder. THERE’S A BIG FENCE! You just can’t fix stupid.

      my feeling exactly…he’s all smug that there aren’t any problems on the border, BUT with that fence in place of course all is calm….when God was giving brains,he turned it down..didn’t need any.

    I never realized how small the border between the two countries is. Looks to be only a few feet . Even Acosta can’t be this stupid to realize that standing in one spot doesn’t prove anything. Pretty sure he would only go to a spot that is safe. Wouldn’t want to get his hair messed up. What an idiot. No bias here!

    wow Acosta Thank you, you just proved the Presidents point of course they feel safe and have no problems, the fact that you showed steel barriers that people can not cross reinforces what the President has said as well as border patrol says where there are barriers it helps detour the crossing! Do you really think we the People would believe you would go to where the real problem is and see the real issues of course no pretty boy you dont want to get caught up in the real issues afraid you might get hurt or prove the Presidents right about the problems little do you know you just made the case for a reason to have barriers all is peaceful Good Job scumbag!

    Acosta I wish you would fall off the face of the Earth, you are acting like a spoiled brat, and in my opinion you should never be allowed inside any press conferences at the WH, if the truth be told you’re probably here illegally. You and CNN are a disgrace and an embarrassment to this country!

    What all of you are mentioning here, is the whole existence of the liberal left,
    and what they have done to the thinking and minds of their voters for decades.

    Hoodwink and dominate America.
    It continues today. I watch a video of a border patrol unit, they talk about real
    life there, and how much drugs, illegals, and gang members are being caught DAILY.
    And yet, the left media is busy trying to hoax their voters. How on earth can people
    actually fall prey to this?

    The highly paid media personalities say Trump is CRUEL…..I just don’t know how Americans
    can be that stupid or that dumb, to actually watch them for 1 minute.

    Acosta is below the level of a slimeball. He thinks he’s got trump in a Gotcha moment. Instead he’s proved that a wall works. Thanks Jim.

    Now is he man enough to go to where a wall is desperately needed and report from there? I doubt he’s got the gonads to do that.
