The American billionaire owner of “Twitter” Elon Musk said that the American public was not fully aware of the border crisis on Monday, just days before the end of the Trump-era control and control policy that Trump approved by executive order and allowed the deportation of 2 million illegal immigrants.
“I don’t think the American public understands that people from all countries cross the southern border, because it’s so easy to do,” Musk wrote on Twitter on Monday.
Musk was responding to a video purporting to show the deployed Texas Tactical Border Force ready before the end of Trump’s executive order that he used to expel hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants from various countries into Mexico, but that policy is just days away from expiring.
News of the executive order’s imminent expiration was met with a visible response at the southern border, where tens of thousands of immigrants were reported to be pouring into the US-Mexico border before the executive order, nicknamed Title 42, expired. In the Texas border city of El Paso, some 2,200 immigrants are currently living
in They camp or live on the streets within a few blocks of the main ports of entry that connect El Paso with the Mexican city of Juarez. The city has begun preparing to open shelters next week if needed in two vacant school buildings and a civic center.
Three cities in Texas have declared states of emergency, including El Paso, Brownsville and Laredo.
Mayor Oscar Lesser, a Democrat in El Paso, has cautioned that when the Executive Order (Title 42) expires, “unknown” illegal immigrants will likely enter the border.
“We’re now preparing for the unknown. The unknown is how many people are going to come here,” El Paso Mayor Oscar Lesser told reporters this month, according to the New York Times.
According to Lesser, federal immigration laws were not violated during both the current and previous administrations. However, it is essential to have a clear plan for the future as there seems to be no solution in sight.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorcas, in the Biden administration, has been defending his involvement in the border crisis in response to criticism from both Republicans and Democrats.
On Sunday, Mayorcas stated that illegal immigration has been an unresolved problem for decades, dating back to the 1990s. He also asserted that the borders are not open during a press conference in Brownsville, Texas.
