  "Here are some of the steel slats that the president’s been talking about," CNN's Jim Acosta said as he walked by the makings of what Trump has suggested might pass for his wall along the southern border with Mexico.
  "But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger, there are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence," Acosta noted. He argued that there was "no sign of the national emergency that the president’s been talking about. As a matter of fact, it’s pretty tranquil down here."
   Acosta was clearly attempting to disprove Trump's suggestion that the insecurity of the southern border and the immigration and drug trafficking crisis surrounding it is a "national emergency." But in his attempts to disprove Trump, he seemingly unwittingly proved the effectiveness of a border wall, even the rudimentary kind of wall consisting of steel slats.
   "Hey Sherlock, there's nothing 'resembling a national emergency situation' there because there's a wall literally right next to you," Caleb Hull, director of content at the Republican-leaning firm Targeted Victory, tweeted.
