Billionaire Elon Musk toured the southern border in Texas Thursday and warned “some pretty extreme” migrants are crossing into the US as he offered an “unfiltered” view of the ongoing crisis.
Musk — the owner of X, formerly of Twitter — was accompanied by Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales during his visit to Eagle Pass, a city that declared a state of emergency last week over the unprecedented arrival of thousands of migrants.
Wearing a cowboy hat and aviator sunglasses, Musk livestreamed his first hand observations and told Gonzales that while he is “extremely pro-immigrant,” he doesn’t believe people should be allowed to enter the US if they are “breaking the law.”
“To be clear we’re both very much in favor of expanded legal immigration. I think anyone who is hardworking and honest and is really gonna add to … the economy, we should let them in,” Musk said.
“But what we’re seeing here are in some cases some pretty extreme individuals coming through … obviously not suggesting everyone is like this.”
