X owner Elon Musk refuted former CNN host Don Lemon during an interview that aired this week after Lemon claimed that illegal aliens did not impact elections in the U.S.

The interview aired on Lemon’s new show “The Don Lemon Show,” which has struggled to gain any traction, many of his videos on YouTube only gaining a few thousand views.

Musk noted that illegal aliens have a “very strong bias toward Democrat” and he believes that Democrats are intentionally allowing illegal immigration to help their electoral power.

“When the census is done, the census is based on all people in an area, whether they are citizens or not,” Musk said. “So if there are a concentration of people who came here illegally in a particular state that state will actually then get an increased number of House seats. So the House seat apportionment is proportional to number of people, not the number of citizens. So the illegals overwhelmingly go to places like California, New York.”

“And if you just look at that the math, if you look at the apportionment, with or without illegals … I believe the blue states, there would be a net loss of blue states of approximately 20 seats in the House,” he added. “This also applies to the the Electoral College. This also applies to electing the president. Because the same, the electoral votes are also done by apportionment the same way that House seats are done.”

Lemon claimed that Musk did not know what he was talking about and, in fact, that reality was “the exact opposite” of what Musk said.

“If as is the case, a disproportionate number of illegal immigrants go to blue states, they amplify the effect of a blue state vote,” Musk explained. “And the math as I understand it, you can research this obviously, very easily. It’s pretty straightforward to research this. But my understanding is that the Democrats would lose approximately 20 seats in the House if illegals were not counted in the census, and that’s also 20 Less electoral votes for president. So illegals absolutely do affect the who controls the House and who controls the presidency. It does not affect the Senate.”
