Elected Republicans Roast Jim Acosta For Inadvertently Proving Walls Work

Benny Johnson, Daily Caller

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.”

Government dependency negated the American dream.
