A illegal alien identified as a citizen of the Russian Federation was shot by Customs and Border Patrol personnel at the U.S-Mexico Border in southern Arizona after resisting arrest on Thursday.

The man, who was apprehended near Lukeville, Arizona, was flown to a Phoenix hospital to receive medical treatment. He’s expected to survive.

A CBP press release described a “physical altercation” between the man and CBP agents that lead to his non-lethal shooting.

Russian diplomatic staff went on to identify the man as Evgeny Gluschenko, 37. They’ve requested access to the man in accordance with their diplomatic rights. Meanwhile, the FBI is investigating his presence at the porous southern border, likely to determine whether or not he represents a national security threat.

This isn’t the first time migrants and other aliens have arrived at the U.S-Mexico border from far-fetched locations. Illegal immigrants from countries such as Iran, Syria and Pakistan have been apprehended attempting to cross into the US from Mexico before, posing a potential terrorism threat.

Gluschenko may be one of the first Russian nationals to be apprehended by CBP, at least in recent years. It’s possible he may have traveled to a nation such as Brazil or Venezuela before beginning a lengthy journey north, hoping to reach the United States.

As reminders of the dangers of a porous, unsecured southern border surface daily, the Trump administration has made mediocre progress in building the ‘big, beautiful’ wall on the southern border the President promised as a candidate. Some new construction of barriers is ongoing, but much of the wall construction merely replaces existing fencing systems.

Border Patrol Arrests More Aliens at Border in February Than Any Year Since 2006

America Last.

Published

Customs and Border Patrol detained more aliens at the southern border in February than any other year since 2006. Nearly 100,000 aliens were arrested last month, according to CBP officials who spoke to Reuters. February isn’t usually a big month for crossings at the southern border, with migrants instead usually preferring to try to enter the United States in the spring and summer months.

The surge in illegal immigration directly follows President Joe Biden’s embrace of “America Last” border and asylum policies. It’s hard to tell if the majority of the aliens remain in detention, have been set free into the country, or have been deported under coronavirus expulsion policies. Biden has all but abolished immigration detention for illegals who have been in the United States for an extended period of time, but the rules surrounding migrants who have been recently caught at the southern border are entirely unclear.

CBP officials are expecting 13,000 unaccompanied minors to arrive at the southern border in the month of May alone, presenting a crisis for an administration that has refused to respond to a surge of illegal migration with anything other than promises of residency, welfare benefits, and taxpayer-funded services.

On Wednesday, CBP apprehended more than 4,500 migrants on a single day, a figure that may very well represent a March record. Less arrests usually mean less aliens are infiltrating the borders, a phenomenon that President Trump’s “America First” immigration policies deterred through a combination of border wall, ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policies, and swift deportations of illegals.

The Biden administration has refused to consider any buffed border policies to deter new waves of illegal migrants, with ‘caravan’ style formations of thousands of migrants likely to arrive in the spring and the summer. Asylum seekers have appeared at the southern border wearing Biden campaign shirts, touting the establishment politician’s staunch loyalty to illegal immigrants over working and middle-class American citizens.
