I try not to get autobiographical, but I lived 5 minutes from that RV park (Chimney Park). I'm an expert on the area. Let me tell you why there's no fence.

For starters, there's nothing on the Mexican side. Less urban density means less cover. Nowhere for smugglers to hide. Also - the Rio Grande is wider and deeper in this section than in other parts. It's a logistical challenge.

There's LOTS of security in this area. CBP office is 10 mins away.

This section of the Rio Grande is constantly monitored by boats. I circled a gas station 6 minutes away (terrible food). That's where they fill up the boats. The next door apartments are full of CBP/ICE/Texas DPS Agents.

The location is 10 minutes from the Anzalduas Int'l Bridge. An area of heightened security with a good amount of aircraft/helicopter activity.

Also, there's a levee just inside the TX side and an elevated road (pictured) that goes down to Granjeno TX (3 miles away). Levee ends at RV park; road continues. The levee road provides great visibility. CBP trucks there constantly.

As a final layer of security, sent LOTS of DPS Troopers to the border. You see many on the south side of Mission TX (near RV park). They've helped tremendously. TLDR: Acosta doesn't understand why there's no fence at the RV park.

It gets worse for He was about 25 yards from a boat ramp sometimes used by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). He was 50 yards away from a vantage point routinely used by CBP.

You can actually see Border Patrol SUVs stationed right next to the RV Park in Google Maps. It's a natural observation point at the bend of the Rio Grande. (see pic 2)

So Acosta realized how his previous video supported Trumps argument, and he finds a place wo a wall that is peaceful. Thanks for sharing your insight into the area and blowing up Acosta's argument that all is well there.

I see how Acosta’s argument supports Trump. But doesn’t ’s argument partially counter Trump’s? If there are already plenty of reasons why illegally crossing the border there is difficult and impractical then wouldn’t there be no need for a wall in that area?

It has already been established that there are large parts of the border that does not need a wall. Everyone should stop trying to figure this out and just listen to the professionals.

It allows you to better utilize your resources. It’s why you build any barrier. 1,000 people or a barrier and sentries? 😳 1 guard for every prisoner or walls and a ratio of guards to inmates? Etc, etc.

I was never that close, but I lived in San Diego, and occasionally traveled down to the border. Acosta is full of s**t. My gf was a cop in SD area. She has some stories to tell about illegals, gangs, drugs, etc. People who don't live there don't know, & reject facts when told.

Apparently, they refuse to except the actual “FACTS” and “TRUTH” and now think that only “MORAL” truth matters. I swear I need to start using that to get out of stuff.

They don’t seem to care about “morals” when it comes to abortion though. Funny how that works.
