Elon Musk: ‘Utter Insanity That Tens of Billions Are Spent for Border Security of Other Countries but None for Ours’

Twitter CEO Elon Musk called out Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and every D.C. politician who voted for the massive omnibus spending bill.

Musk slammed lawmakers for passing the bill while ignoring our own southern border.

Our politicians funded border security in other countries but largely ignored the crisis here at home, causing an exasperated Musk to call out the “insanity” of the move.

“What utter insanity that tens of billions are being spent for border security of other countries, but none for ours!!” Musk said.

GOP Senator Mike Lee said:

“An amendment by Sens Sinema & Tester is designed to ensure a porous border.

“A wolf in sheep’s clothing to mislead the American people to believe Dems are doing something to secure our borders.

“It merely provides them cover to vote against my extension of Title 42 protections.”

Musk said:

“Is this true, @SenatorSinema and @SenatorTester?”

Senator Tester said:

“That claim is false. Our amendment was a good-faith effort to take proposals that both Democrats and Republicans claim they support.

“Both parties have failed to secure our southern border and fix our broken immigration system.

“We need to get serious about solving this problem.”

Musk said:

“But shouldn’t there be some funding in this bill to secure US borders, given that we are spending tens of billions to secure the borders of other countries?”

Former Dem Rep Tulsi Gabbard echoed Elon Musk saying:

“There’s about $1.5 billion there that’s been set aside for Customs and Border Protection, border security.

“The problem is the language also says they’re not actually allowed to use any of that money to secure the border.

“They can’t use it to expand their security capabilities.

“So, when you look at what they’re actually doing, ultimately they either don’t care, as you said, or they are purely incompetent, either way they’re failing at their jobs.

“What’s at the heart of this is we have Democrats and Republicans, frankly, in Congress who are failing at their most basic and foremost responsibility, which is to ensure the safety, security and freedom of the American people, and that starts with securing our border.

“We don’t have a country if we don’t have a secure border.”
