Elon Musk Supports Border Wall, Calls for Evidence in Asylum Claims

Elon Musk Supports Border Wall, Calls for Evidence in Asylum Claims

Tech billionaire Elon Musk has expressed his support for a border wall, arguing that migrants seeking asylum in the United States should provide “a shred of evidence” to support their claims. In a recent post on social media platform X, Musk, the owner of Tesla, SpaceX, and X (formerly known as Twitter), stated that a wall is necessary and that individuals should be required to provide evidence when claiming asylum.

Musk highlighted that obtaining asylum status after crossing the southern border illegally is as simple as conducting a Google search, referring to it as a “hack” that anyone can easily learn. He emphasized that this process needs to change, as it currently allows individuals to enter the country without proper evidence to support their asylum claims.

Responding to a conversation about the border crisis and the government shutdown, Musk underlined that securing the border is not a partisan issue. Even leaders of the Democratic Party in New York have acknowledged that the situation at the border is a severe crisis.

Musk announced that he plans to visit Eagle Pass, Texas, in the coming days to observe the situation firsthand. He has been in contact with Representative Tony Gonzales (R-Texas) regarding the crisis and expressed his concern about the overwhelming numbers of migrants.

The border crisis has escalated in recent months, with July and August seeing a significant surge in encounters at the border. These numbers are expected to be even higher in September, with footage showing large groups of migrants entering Eagle Pass. The crisis has led to the closure of bridges and an increased allocation of resources to address the situation.

Elon Musk’s visit to the border demonstrates his personal commitment to understanding the challenges and seeking potential solutions to the ongoing crisis. By calling for evidence in asylum claims, he aims to promote a more thorough and accountable process for those seeking refuge in the United States.
