Elon Musk Blasts Biden's Push For Border Deal: "No Laws Need To Be Passed"

President Joe Biden's call for a bipartisan Senate deal to tackle the border crisis drew criticism from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who said the president was overlooking—or refusing to see—simple fixes that don't require new laws to address the problem.

On Friday, President Biden posted a statement on X calling for Congress to pass legislation giving him new emergency authority to shut down the border when it becomes overwhelmed.

"If given that authority, I would use it the day I sign the bill into law," the president insisted while reiterating his call for Congress to approve more money for border security.

"If you're serious about the border crisis, pass a bipartisan bill, and I will sign it," he said.
