ELON MUSK WADES INTO US IMMIGRATION DEBATE AT TEXAS-MEXICO BORDER – Musk urged a two-pronged approach to overhauling U.S. immigration laws.
Billionaire Elon Musk waded into the U.S. immigration debate, paying a visit to the Texas border with Mexico to meet with local politicians and law enforcement and obtain what he called an “unfiltered” view of the situation.
Musk’s visit came as thousands of migrants have ventured to northern Mexico in recent days on freight trains and buses, then crossed the U.S. border into Texas, Arizona and California in an upswing in arrivals of people seeking asylum in the United States. Musk urged a two-pronged approach to overhauling U.S. immigration laws.
He called for an “expedited legal approval” as part of a “greatly expanded legal immigration system” that welcomes “hard-working and honest” migrants, while also barring entry for those who are “breaking the law.” The “flow” of people coming over the border should be stopped, Musk said, to prevent what he called the “collapse of social services”.
