CNN’s Jim Acosta recently visited the border with the intention of proving that there is no crisis and that we don’t need a border wall. Instead, he ended up making Trump’s point. He visited an area where a border wall exists and stupidly pointed out that there were no problems.

CNN’s Jim Acosta mocked for accidentally proving that border walls work

CNN’s Jim Acosta was mocked across social media on Thursday for posting a video that was meant to downplay President Trump’s claims of a border crisis — but ended up supporting his argument that border barriers improve security.
“Here are some of the steel slats that the president’s been talking about,” Acosta said while reporting from the southern border. “But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger.”
The CNN reporter added, “There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence.”
Acosta then declared there was “no sign of the national emergency that the president has been talking about” and it was “tranquil” near him. He captioned the video, “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.”
