A Miami Beach modeling shoot got some unexpected company this month when a gang of illegal aliens swarmed ashore in the dawn’s early light.
Videographer Ekaterina Juskowski told the News Times Broward-Palm Beach she was shooting video of a model friend about 6 a.m. July 10 when a boat started approaching shore quickly.
Thinking it was simply scuba divers, she said, she turned off her camera – but turned it back on when she saw the men pouring off the vessel, out of the surf and onto the sand.
Border Patrol officials didn’t sound surprised by the brazenness of the men – or the boat that dropped them off.
“That’s a testament to how confident these organizations are — what we call transnational criminal organizations — who smuggle criminals and narcotics right onto the beach,” Border Patrol spokesman Frank Miller told the New Times.
“There has been an increase in known maritime smuggling in Florida — from Key West all along the Florida coast — from fiscal year 2014 to now,” he said.
Juskowski, an immigrant herself who came to the country from Russia when she was 18, told the liberal alternative weekly the incident was striking.
“As controversial as the problem of illegal immigration can be for many of us, it is important to remember that people come here in search of the better life and it comes at a very high price of great courage, hard work and loneliness,” she said.
True enough. But you can bet she didn’t swim here from Russia illegally.
