Remember when CNN’s Jim Acosta started into a debate with President Trump in the White House briefing room to complain about his campaign ad showing illegal immigrants climbing the border fence?
“Your campaign had an ad showing migrants climbing over walls and so on, but they’re not going to be doing that,” Acosta told Trump, adding, “They’re hundreds of miles away, though. They’re hundreds and hundreds of miles away.”
That was mid-November, the caravan is here, and yes, they are “climing over walls and so on.”
Members of the migrant caravan, after 6 weeks of hard travel from Central America, increasingly inclement weather, and a perceived slow roll on US asylum requests have begun to scale the border fence. #gettyimages #gettyimagesnews #CaravanaMigrante #Border #immigration pic.twitter.com/uQVzqfeRdV

“A perceived slow roll on U.S. asylum requests”? What did they expect when they arrived by the thousands? We know what they expected — to overwhelm the system and get rubber-stamped grants of asylum to speed things along.
Maybe the photographer should have told them that entering illegally is not going to help their asylum claim.
But @Acosta assured us this wouldn’t happen!

Not possible. Acosta told the President that this wouldn’t happen. https://t.co/beR9uRv05l

That thing liberals and media types (but I repeat) assured us we were idiots for thinking would happen https://t.co/pceXUFBocL

So now you're making excuses for why it's ok to enter illegally? Not to mention is anyone going to address how the caravan somehow show up weeks ahead of schedule? Acosta said they were hundreds of miles away and a week later they showed up.
