Elon Musk Sounds the Alarm on US Immigration Crisis: ‘They’re Eyeing Your Homes Too’

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and the world’s wealthiest individual, has raised concerns about the US government potentially using private residences to house immigrants amid the ongoing crisis. Musk’s warning comes in response to reports of a New York high school’s gym being utilized as a shelter for immigrants. The Tesla CEO expressed his apprehensions in response to a video shared by Libs of TikTok X, formerly a Twitter account, which depicted immigrants being dropped off at the high school.

Musk remarked, “This is what happens when you run out of hotel rooms. Soon, cities will run out of schools to vacate. Then they will come for your homes.” Although Musk did not cite a specific government directive, he alluded to a story about Governor Maura Healey’s call for families to host immigrants in their homes.

The situation at the high school was confirmed by New York City Council Minority Whip Inna Vernikov, who stated that 2,000 immigrants from Floyd Bennett Field were slated to occupy the gym and auditoriums of Madison High School. Vernikov voiced concerns about the impact on the school’s primary function as an educational institution, highlighting the anxieties of parents and residents regarding safety and the disruption of the school environment.

New York has experienced an influx of over 160,000 people since the onset of the immigration crisis nearly two years ago. Many of these individuals have been transported in buses chartered by governors from Republican-led border states as a form of protest against what they perceive as President Biden’s lenient border policies.

Musk, who has recently been outspoken about US immigration policies, shared his concerns on his newly acquired platform, emphasizing the potential implications of such government actions on private residences and public facilities.

Since President Joe Biden, a Democrat, assumed office in 2021, there has been a significant increase in the number of migrants apprehended for illegal border crossings. In the fiscal year 2023, the US Border Patrol reported approximately 2 million migrant arrests at the US-Mexico border, continuing the trend of high numbers seen during Biden’s initial two years as president. Critics, particularly Republicans, have accused Biden of relaxing the stricter immigration policies implemented during the Trump era. They object to Biden’s new policies that allow certain migrants to enter the US legally on humanitarian grounds, arguing that these measures bypass established immigration procedures.
