Trump and Jim Acosta Visit The Texas Border And Confirm A Few Things
That many who are apprehended trying to cross are not from South America or Mexico. In McAllen, Texas, a border official told Trump that just yesterday, there were over 400 apprehensions and 133 of them were from countries other than Mexico and South America: Pakistan, India, Romania, China, Ecuador, Nicaragua among many other countries form around the world are where these people originate from and wind up at our border.
The officer implored Trump for more fencing. Where his sector has no fencing, over 90% of the traffic occurs in those areas. In the area where there is fencing, 6% of the traffic occurs.
Democrats continue to look even more foolish as Trump goes to the source for first-hand information and experience. Denial is simply disingenuous at this point.

In other news, CNN's Jim Acosta reported from McAllen, TX today and confirmed that steel slats work as a border. Yes, Jimbo, there was no "crisis" at the very tall, steel fence you stood at, or around the concertina-wire fencing you posted, so that residents on the other side can live in relative peace and safety.
That's the whole point, sport.
