In case Jim Acosta didn’t do a good enough job making a compelling case for increased border security, take a look at this:


Mexican authorities are investigating a battle between two suspected gangs that left at least 20 bodies, 17 of them burned, in a border town near where US President Donald Trump will visit on Thursday to win support for his plan to build a wall.

A Mexican security official said that authorities discovered 20 bodies on Wednesday, 17 of them burned, outside Ciudad Miguel Aleman, which is about 56 miles from McAllen, across the Rio Grande river. Five burned vehicles were also found near the bodies, the security official said.

A separate state security official said on Thursday that 21 bodies had been found at the site.

Maybe the border isn’t quite as safe as some would like us to believe.
