CNN’s Jim Acosta is in border land near McAllen, Texas, where President Donald J. Trump is set to visit Thursday afternoon. While waiting for Trump to arrive, Acosta filmed himself walking along the border where steel slats are already erected.
What he said during his broadcast completely obliterates the ridiculous leftist talking point that “walls don’t work.”
“Here are some of the steel slats the the President’s been talking about, right here” Acosta said. “As you can see, yes you can see through these slats to the other side of the U.S./Mexico border. But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger, there are no migrants trying to rush towards this fence here in the McAllen, Texas area. As a matter of fact, there are some other businesses behind me, along this highway. There’s a gas station, Burger King, and so on – but no sign of the national emergency that the President has been talking about. As a matter of fact, it’s pretty tranquil down here.”
Earth to Acosta! It is tranquil at this part of the border in McAllen, Texas precisely because there is a wall there! Migrants aren’t attempting to cross there because there is a barrier. They prefer the thousands of miles of wide open border land where such barriers don’t exist! Who would have thought?
Throughout the video, Acosta had a smirk on his face, as if he was somehow proving the President wrong, which in his role as a leftist CNN activist is part of his duty.
Unfortunately for Acosta, this time he owned himself.
I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today. pic.twitter.com/KRoLdszLUu

Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
