Model’s Fashion Shoot Bombarded By Illegal Aliens Jumping Out Of Boat
A Miami model’s photoshoot was interrupted by several illegal immigrants brazenly entering the United States with ease, caught on video jumping out of a boat and running to shore.
The incident occurred July 10th on Miami Beach, Florida as Ekaterina Juskowski was filming her friend for a sunrise beach photo op, according to the Broward Palm Beach New Times .
At first, Juskowski was perturbed by what she thought to be a scuba boat in the background ruining her film. She then stopped recording, but quickly realized something else was going on and turned her camera back on to capture the surprising scene.
Multiple men can be seen jumping from the boat and running ashore.
“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,” U.S. Border Patrol spokesperson Frank Miller told the Broward Palm Beach New Times.
In fact, the Border Patrol’s website indicates that illegal entry via ocean pathways is very common. In 2014 across the east and west coast, 3,492 individuals were apprehended attempting to enter the country illegally via the “coastal border.”
But Ekaterina Juskowski — herself an immigrant — showed sympathy towards the illegal aliens.
“Witnessing people starting their life anew by jumping off the boat and running into the city made my personal struggle seem rather small,” she said. “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.”
However, one unnamed border enforcement official noted that illegal immigrants who flee in search of a better life are typically women and children, while groups of all men like the video portrays are often violent felons who have already been deported.

Miller said it is virtually impossible to stop all of the illegal immigrants entering the country via Florida’s waterways because it’s so vast “it’s difficult to get a solid level of situational awareness on whats coming in,” even with multiple law enforcement agencies assisting each other.
