New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave billionaire Elon Musk a blunt reminder of his own background after he accused Democrats of "importing voters" to influence elections.

Musk's claim that this is the Democratic Party's "goal" was a response to a right-wing account on his platform X, formerly Twitter, that cited the far-right Daily Caller's report that President Joe Biden is considering "granting amnesty" and "handing out green cards to illegal immigrants.

You can see his post below.

Shortly afterward, Ocasio-Cortez responded to him with this simple fact:

"You're literally an immigrant."

You can see her response below.

Musk is indeed an immigrant.

Musk hails from South Africa, where he was born and raised. Born into the affluent Musk family in Pretoria, Elon initially pursued his education at the University of Pretoria before relocating to Canada at the age of 18. He obtained Canadian citizenship through his mother, who was born in Canada.

Continuing his academic journey, Musk enrolled at Queen's University in Kingston, Canada, before transferring to the University of Pennsylvania in 1992, where he earned bachelor's degrees in both economics and physics. He ventured to California in 1995 and attended Stanford University, only to drop out after a couple of days to launch a start-up company.

Musk, like many immigrants, has described the United States as "the land of opportunity."

His hypocrisy was rich—and many joined the Congresswoman in calling him out.

Despite being an immigrant himself, Musk has aligned himself with the far-right's anti-immigrant agenda.

He came under fire in December after he told attendees at the Atreju Festival in Rome, Italy, that the "culture of Italy, Japan and France will disappear" if those nations don't reverse their low birth rates.

Musk attended the event, which was hosted by the far-right Brothers of Italy party of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, using it as an opportunity to push the great replacement theory, a conspiracy that states White European populations and their descendants are being demographically and culturally replaced with non-European peoples.

His remarks were applauded by the event's far-right attendees, who have voiced concerns about Italy having one of the lowest birth rates in the world.
