“Strange that there is almost no legacy media coverage of this,” the X CEO wrote on his account.
“About 2 million people – from every country on Earth – are entering through the US southern border every year. The number is rising rapidly, yet no preventive action is taken by the current administration,” he added.
Musk was quoting a post by Fox News’ Bill Melugin, who called the situation “a total free for all in Eagle Pass,” Texas.
Musk’s remarks came as that same town, Eagle Pass, has declared a state of emergency amid surging border crossings. Mayor Rolando Salinas Jr. issued the emergency declaration over what he called a “severe undocumented immigrant surge.”
New York City has also spiraled out of control from the influx of illegal immigrants for months, with countless protests and even citizens attempting to stop buses filled with immigrants from entering their neighborhoods.
The city plans to cut more than 15% of its budget along with overtime for its city services in order to pay for all the new illegal residents.
With southwest land border encounters topping 2.3 million in fiscal year 2022, the encounters for 2023 look to approximately match that number, if not exceed it, having reached 1.973 million in 10 months.
President Trump’s last year in office (2020) finished with just 458,088 encounters at the southwest border, but that number was nearly quadrupled in President Biden’s first year in office with more than 1.7 million.

“No department in the Biden regime is actually for Americans. They are about as un-American as you can get, including not wanting to protect our sovereignty and our border,” BlazeTV’s Sara Gonzales said.
Gonzales also commented on water buoys that Texas Governor Greg Abbott put in place to deter illegal crossings:
“You want to open the door and welcome them right in as soon as they get across the border? Fine. But we’re going to at least try to put something in the way of that happening, because it turns out, that’s not actually a good strategy. That’s not actually a good policy, and we’d like to change that. But the DOJ says no, we’re just going to sue you,” she added.
