Elon Musk Says Biden Is Actively Facilitating Illegal Immigration

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said the Joe Biden Administration is “actively facilitating illegal immigration” in a post, Thursday on the social media platform X, the name Musk gave Twitter in 2023 after acquiring the company that owns it in 2022.

“At this point, there is no question that this administration is actively facilitating illegal immigration. The numbers speak for themselves,” wrote Musk, a resident of the U.S. border state of Texas and formerly California, which also shares a border with Mexico.

Musk left the note on a repost that said, “By all available metrics, this administration’s border policy is a disaster. Monthly Encounters have averaged: – 98,000 for the two previous administrations. – 242,000 for the Biden border.”

“And these averages understate the current situation – it’s getting worse every month. December 2023 was the worst single month in history at the southern border,” the post added above a yearly graph going back to Jan. 2012 and depicting the marked spike in border encounters and apprehensions of illegal immigrants during the Biden Administration.

“Using two recent years as models (FY2017 and FY2021), the number of Encounters at the border this fiscal year can be expected to range between 2.3M and 6.6M,” the post continued in a following thread. Those figures are consistent with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 2023 tally of 3.2 million encounters with illegal aliens nationwide.

CBP recently told Fox News that border agents encountered a record 302,000 illegal border crossers last month. That makes December’s total number of documented encounters the highest rate of illegal immigration to the United States for a month on record, blowing away all previous statistics, according to Fox News.

“As House Republicans heard at the southern border this week: it’s as if Border Patrol is at an open fire hydrant,” House Speaker Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) said Friday on CNN. “They don’t need more buckets to dump the water—they need to turn off the flow. More money to process illegal immigrants won’t end this crisis, but transformational policy changes will.”
