WATCH: Acosta Tries To Prove Trump Wrong About Border, Learns Walls Work

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.”

    Im sure after hearing President Trump is coming to the McAllen border illegals would naturally avoid that area and try crossing somewhere where the media and border patrol is not present,evidence is available where the new border wall has been constructed,it works and illegal crossings have all but stopped,BUILD THE WALL and give border patrol agents the electronic and technical tools to keep America safe and secure

    Acosta is a verified idiot. Acosta and CNN deserve each other. I hope CNN’s rating keep going down.

    Anyone who tries to down play the crisis at the border and our need for a wall is a traitor to America.

    It was mentioned today on the radio that the TV cable news shows are down, down, down.
    People are getting their news elsewhere worldwide. Obviously where there are walls, barriers etc.
    it is working…they are a deterrent. How stupid is Acosta?
