World’s richest man Elon Musk —in his copious amounts of free time —managed to visit Eagle Pass, Texas on Thursday to see firsthand what’s taking place at the southern border.
Musk was joined by Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales (R).
“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.”

From Fox News:
Musk then said as an immigrant himself, he is “extremely pro-immigrant,” but explained that there needs to be expanded immigration that allows hardworking and honest people to legally come to the U.S., but not allow immigrants who are going to break the law.
One fear he voiced was the flow of illegal immigrants into the country could lead to the collapse of social services, just as New York City was buckling under the pressure of migrants being bused there from Texas.
Joining Musk was Gonzalez, who said he appreciated the tech mogul visiting the border to get an unfiltered picture along the border.
The comments under Musk’s live feed went rampant, as one user said, “Good to see Elon having to do the job of the MSM and of the politicians who are literally paid to do this but refuse.”
