Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk took to X, formerly Twitter, last week to shed light on what he perceives as the political maneuvering behind President Joe Biden’s open-borders immigration policy. This unleashed a wave of criticism from some Democrats who labeled Musk’s insights as a “vile conspiracy theory.”
Biden’s strategy is very simple:
1. Get as many illegals in the country as possible.
2. Legalize them to create a permanent majority – a one-party state.

Musk’s tweetstorm kicked off on a Friday evening with a straightforward post: “Biden’s strategy is very simple: 1. Get as many illegals in the country as possible. 2. Legalize them to create a permanent majority – a one-party state. That is why they are encouraging so much illegal immigration. Simple, yet effective.”
Accompanying the tweet was a screenshot of a January 2021 Associated Press article titled “Biden to prioritize legal status for millions of immigrants.”
In response, a leftwing commentator dismissed Musk’s assertion as a “vile conspiracy theory,” expressing concern over the influence wielded by the richest man in the world. They stated, “pushing it like this is incredibly dangerous, even before you consider how he’s a defense contractor who owns a huge political platform.”

Musk didn’t stop there; he replied to the initial post by sharing a link to a bill in Congress aimed at providing an “earned path to citizenship” for illegal aliens. In a tongue-in-cheek manner, Musk remarked, “Here is the full text of the bill. It sounds so reasonable at first, just like ‘The Committee of Public Safety’ actually meant ‘The Cutting Off Heads Committee’ in revolutionary France.”
Reiterating his perspective on Biden’s strategy, Musk added, “This explains why there are so few deportations, as every deportation is a lost vote. As happened this week, you can literally assault police officers in broad daylight in New York, be released with no bail, give everyone the finger and still not be deported!!”
This reference was to an incident where four illegal migrants attacked two New York City police officers, later fleeing to California after being released without bail by a judge.
Expressing his frustration with Biden on Saturday, Musk disclosed additional information: “A few other things you probably don’t know: illegals in America can get bank loans, mortgages, insurance, driver’s licenses, free healthcare (California & New York) and in-state college tuition. What’s the point of being a citizen if an illegal gets all the benefits but doesn’t pay taxes or do jury duty?”
