Elon Musk wades into US immigration debate at Texas-Mexico border


In the last few days, zillionaire Elon Musk visited the border and, not surprisingly, weighed in on immigration.

Musk  called for an "expedited legal approval" and a "greatly expanded legal immigration system" that welcomes "hard-working and honest" migrants, while also barring entry for those who are "breaking the law."  The first part makes sense to me.  The second part is easier said than done.

"We want to do both things - smooth out legal immigration and stop a flow of people that is of such magnitude that we’re leading to a collapse of social services," Musk said.

Musk is an immigrant from South Africa and called himself "extremely pro-immigrant."
