The President may be too occupied to visit the surge and breakdown of the border – but not Elon Musk.

Fox Business headlines:

Elon Musk to visit Eagle Pass, TX amid migrant crisis

Friday to Sunday, Eagle Pass saw over 4K migrant apprehensions 

The story reports this of the billionaire:

“Elon Musk is going to Eagle Pass, Texas, after speaking with GOP Rep. Tony Gonzales about the migrant crises, the Tesla chief executive and SpaceX founder announced from his X account on Tuesday. 

Border Patrol processing facilities in the Texas city were jammed over the weekend, with tents made for 1,000 migrants being occupied by over four times that amount. Between Friday and Sunday, Eagle Pass saw over 4,000 migrant apprehensions. 

‘They are being overwhelmed by unprecedented numbers – just hit an all-time high and still growing!’ Musk said on his account. 

Eagle Pass has seen over 7,000 undocumented migrants crossed the Rio Grande since Sunday Sept. 17, with intelligence reports showing additional migrant caravans in Mexico and Central America on the way, the Eagle Pass Business Journal reported on Friday. 

The report said the flow of migrants has stressed community resources including Eagle Pass’ only medical hospital, causing delays for local patients needing emergency medical services. 

Both the city’s fire and police departments are also under pressure through increasing calls, while the Maverick County Sheriff’s Department has reported one homicide case of a U. S. citizen. An undocumented migrant from Peru has been arrested as a suspect, according to the report.”

Not good. Not good at all.

Three cheers for Elon Musk.

But where is the President of the United States?
