The Acosta tweet Trump referenced revealed the CNN White Home Reporter at the border pointing to where the steel slats offered way to chain link fencing and speaking about the safe neighborhood on the U.S. side of the border. As he stood by the chain link fencing, he stated people do see migrants come over the border there.

The steel slats don’t run the whole length of the border in the McAllen area. We discovered one part where there is a chain link fence. Periodically migrants come thru however residents say their community is quite safe. pic.twitter.com/ivpPl0XT48

Trump tweeted “walls work” on Sunday. The remark was part of two tweets quoting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the importance of avoiding illegal immigration.

… The only reason they do not wish to build a Wall is that Walls Work! 99%of our unlawful Border crossings will end, criminal activity in our Nation will go way down and we will save billions of dollars a year! An effectively prepared and built Wall will spend for itself numerous times a year!
