    fine and continue to work, Jim Acosta proved that. Also:

    "KUSI offered our own Dan Plante, who has reported dozens of times on the border, including one story from 2016 that was retweeted by former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, and posted on DrudgeReport.com," it continues while linking to a border fence tour report.

    "We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work," it concludes. "We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it."

    we have walls and natural barriers so why do we need a new wall for billions of bucks, answer,

    WE DON'T.

    So, this seems to reinforce that we DO need a wall along portions of the border that do not have a wall. This section works. No?

    Apparently they work just fine, and natural barriers work as well.

    So we should extend the wall where we do not have one.

    Too match the existing, and where do we not have a wall, we have 700 miles of wall at present.
    Should be much less than 5.7 billion , rounding up to 6 billion not 5 billion.

    Uh oh. Could it be that Acosta is mistaken?

    On the same day that CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta posted his report from McAllen, Texas assuring Americans that there wasn’t “anything resembling a national emergency situation,” at least not there, very different reports were coming out of a Mexican border town just a few hours northwest: Authorities found 21 bodies, some burned, after what appears to be yet another clash between rival drug cartel gangs.

    Because of gang members who enter the US illegally. If they are at the border it stands to reason they are trying to cross it. The wall needs to be extended to keep them out. There is no reason in import more criminals. Why don't you care that people are being harmed by gang members? Just wondering.

    Here's just one example of illegal gang members who should not have gotten into the US>

    Gaston County police say they arrested three illegal aliens with $200,000 worth of methamphetamine in their possession.

    Christian Cabrea-Rivas, 36, Silvia Hernandez-Iturralde, 29 and Marco Tulio Ramos Garcia, 35 were taken into custody on Monday, Jan. 7 after authorities found them in possession of two kilograms of meth.

    Police say several children were present during the drug bust. They have since been taken into protective custody.

    All three suspects were charged with trafficking methamphetamine by the Gaston County Police Department. Hernandez-Iturralde and Garcia are being held under a $250,000 bond. Garcia also had an outstanding deportation order when he was arrested, and is under an immigration hold as well.

    Cabrea-Rivas is being held on a $275,000 bond and an immigration hold. He is a documented member of the street gang MS-13, and has an extensive criminal history.

    In December 2018, he was arrested in Mecklenburg County for an assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, assault by pointing a gun, communicating threats and possession of a stolen gun.
