CNN’s Jim Acosta traveled to the US-Mexico border in McAllen Texas and ended up making a great case for border security — particularly in the form of a physical barrier or wall.

Acosta was in McAllen to cover the Presidential visit to the border town in the wake of the government shutdown over disagreements on border security funding. As Acosta awaited the president, he took a video of himself wandering along a segment of the border that is already protected by a wall, describing how safe he felt on the other side of the wall.

In the video, Acosta says, “We’re not seeing any imminent danger — There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence. No sign of the national emergency the president has been talking about.”

“I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation,” Acosta tweeted.

Conservative members of Congress and members of the Trump administration immediately pointed out that Acosta had ham-handedly made the case for a strong border wall — as President Trump has done for years.

President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager thanked Acosta for “pointing out how peaceful, safe and secure it is at a part of the border that HAS a wall.”

Sarah Sanders added, “I never imagined Acosta would be there doing our job for us and so clearly explaining why WALLS WORK. Thanks Jim!”

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said, “You’re making Trump’s case better than he can!” and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise said, “Glad to see the steel slats are deterring illegal immigrants from attempting to cross the border.”

The Trump border visit comes amid a partial government shutdown over funding for border security, as Democratic congressional leaders refuse to give the White House its requested funding for a border wall.

    What kind of a brainless toad thinks a fence is a wall? Are you aware that there are many areas in that town with NO steel slats? The bitch Sanders and the filthy con man Trump have you white trash idiots in a tizzy.

      And you foolish man, that is the problem, build the wall in those areas, and it will be safer, ss the steel walls are. Does not take an Einstein to figure that out. You just help finish Acosta’s blooper, finish the job and build the way where the skimpy fencing and no fencing are.

      Say something brainless liberal? “Wall – any of various permanent upright constructions having a length much greater than the thickness and presenting a continuous surface except where pierced by doors, windows, etc.: used for shelter, protection, or privacy, or to subdivide interior space, to support floors, roofs, or the like, to retain earth, to fence in an area, etc.”

        So in other words, Wilson, NOT steel slats. Steel slats do not present “a continuous surface except where pierced by doors, windows, etc.” You have no idea what kind of a “wall” Trump wants, you don’t care who pays for it, Trump doesn’t know what is best.

      Looks like the liberal troll caught his underwear (if he wears any) in McAllen with idiot Acosta.

      Intelligent people knows a wall means barrier/fence when it comes to the border. Those with TDS and does namecalling are usually the ones doing it because they are angry they were proven wrong.

      What kind of toad doesn’t understand a barrier/fence is a border wall? A road that does namecalling and spews out such ignorance because their side proved Trump right. TDS doesn’t allow that.

        Oh please, Shiela, Death Death Death says the Death Pig Trump, and you cower in fear. You are so afraid of… of what? That you would buy the sick lies of a disgusting con man. What is your fear, Shiela? Why do you stick your tiny head so completely into a hole of ignorance? Why do you need a con man’s lies to feel good about yourself? When did you lose your brain and your heart?

        A wall is a fence. A con man is a president. A whore is a first lady. A scheming bitch (Ivanka) is an innocent child whose pussy Daddy wants. This is the Trump universe. What kind of a fool does it take to buy into it? What kind of fool, Shelia?

      Whether you call it a fence, steel slats or a wall it is still a barrier that is needed

        Is a hedge a wall? Is a railing a wall? Is barbed wire a wall? Are chains a wall? Trump said he was going to build a big concrete wall and Mexico was going to pay for it. A big, giant concrete wall. That is what he said. If anything can now be a wall as long as we call it a wall, why don’t we just say that a wall is whatever is at a border. If we say that, then we have the wall!

      patrolidiot….. Is that the best you got a**hole. I hear your mother sucks big ones and loves rearenders. Now that I have reached your low level of intelligence, let’s look at the real picture. It’s so simple even you should understand it. The only reason it is quite there is because of the wall. END OF STORY.

      You have a filthy mouth. Didn’t your grandmother ever explain to you that you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar? If you are trying to sway people, best not to insult them.

      If you are just in here to abuse strangers, then go see a shrink, get on Zoloft maybe.

    . . . . Thanks, ja!! Build the wall and build it now. No amnesty. Round up and deport all of the illegals after convicting them of illegally entering the US. This way they can’t ever come here legally. This is their punishment for jumping the line.
    . . . . I am a retired Auto Technician that is living on Social Security Disability. I also served in the AF but my disability is not service connected. I am trying to raise the money for me to be able to move back to Texas. I was born there. I am concerned that I may not be able to survive another Wisconsin winter. Here is the link to my GoFundMe page. Please help me out.

    Stay down there until well after dark. Then venture out into the darkness and see the areas that are not so “tranquil”. Go out there by yourself, Jimmy, if it is that tranquil. If you are right, the best that could happen is you’ll hunker down and get the best sleep of your life! What’s the worst that can happen in such a tranquil atmosphere… I mean REALLY?! I suggest you take a change of “undergarments” because you will sh*t yourself! Really, just you by yourself in the dark of the night… What’s the worst that can happen… If you would do this, maybe you could start report truthful reports. That would be nice. In reality, though, do a ride-along with Border Patrol and see what is coming over the border, in the dark cover of night, before you push another propaganda video down our throats. “We the People” are not stupid, Hoss.
