"I spoke with Rep Tony Gonzales tonight – he confirmed that it is a serious issue," Musk posted on X.
He added, "Am going to visit Eagle Pass later this week to see what’s going on for myself."
Musk's comment came as a reply to drone footage that showed hundreds of migrants standing on top of trains that were set to traverse to the US southern border.
A set of pictures shared on X by American journalist Jorge Ventura showed Venezuelan migrants camping out on sidewalks throughout the downtown of El Paso.
"Hundreds of Venezuelan migrants sleeping on sidewalks all around downtown El Paso including children as resources are overwhelmed," Venture wrote online, "and yesterday we a line over 1,000 Venezuelan migrants in Juarez lining up to be processed by border patrol agents in El Paso."
In another post, Ventura said that over 7,800 migrants have been released into San Diego's streets in just the last 13 days.
Eagle Pass, the small border town Musk will soon be visiting, has been flooded with illegal immigrants in recent days, weeks, and months. Recently, over 7,500 people came into the small town of 28,000 people in just two days, according to the Daily Mail. The town's Democrat mayor has reacted by declaring a state of emergency.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden has said he will soon rapidly process over 300,000 Venezuelan migrants who have come into the US since July 31.
As many as 232,972 people came through the US-Mexico border in the month of August, marking an uptick from prior months.
Musk has notably lectured the media for intentionally ignoring the crisis, and has said in regard to the border: "This gets no coverage because the media NPCs are instructed not to cover it."
This planned trip by Musk comes as he has been speaking out on other political issues as well; the tech mogul met with Hungarian President Katalin Novák at the Tesla Giga factory in Texas on Tuesday to discuss issues surrounding changing demographics.
