President Joe Biden is attempting to play fast and loose with the facts surrounding border security, and at least Elon Musk is not buying his narrative.
The Democrat claimed that he was working tirelessly to control illegal migration but needed a new immigration package passed by Congress. Biden said through “tougher border control” the crisis would be averted.
He asserted, “If given that authority, I would use it the day I sign the bill into law.” The devil is in the details, however, as honest observers clearly see. Musk, the billionaire owner of Tesla and SpaceX, did not concur with the president.

As he posted on his X platform, formerly Twitter, “No laws need to be passed. All that is needed is an executive order to require proof before granting an asylum hearing. That is how it used to be.”
That proof, of course, cannot be produced for a vast majority of asylum cases. The reason is that they are overwhelmingly economic migrants entering the U.S. in an attempt to take advantage of what the nation has to offer.
And while that is understandable, the country will crumble if it continues to take in millions of these migrants from every corner of the globe.
As Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) correctly noted, Biden hopes to enshrine into law the normalization of having 5,000 migrants per day enter the U.S. That’s 1.8 million per year and, in the senator’s words, is “called an invasion.”
The invasion hit a record high in December, according to figures confirmed last week by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). A staggering 302,034 encounters were recorded with illegal migrants.
That’s a figure that has never been reached in the history of the country. It is brutal confirmation that the borders are figments of the popular imagination as long as the current incumbent is in the White House.
It also demonstrated the dishonesty in the White House’s claim that border security is on the front burner.
The Biden administration has one goal — to permit as many illegal migrants into the country as possible. Once inside, they become entrenched and a cornerstone of the Democratic electorate.
Musk is right, and the White House is only using border negotiations as a smokescreen to continue the invasion under a lawful pretext. This should be resisted at all turns.
