Authorities said on Wednesday that border agents rescued a Mexican national who was trapped on a California border wall while trying to enter the United States illegally.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in a statement that agents patrolling Empire Beach found the 25-year-old man hanging from a part of the wall that reached into the Pacific Ocean at around 8:15 on Tuesday night.

The agency said immigrants tried to shrink the US side of the wall and were trapped above the waterline. The Mexican authorities expelled the man, and CPB agents kept him safe.
According to the authorities, he was taken to the hospital for hypothermia and knee pain treatment.
Although the agency did not immediately say whether the man was left behind by the smugglers, it warned that these traffickers would pose a danger.
The chief patrol agent, Aaron Heitke, said in a statement: “This is a serious reminder.” “The smuggler’s only motivation is to make a profit. When the situation becomes difficult, literally Still in the image, they will make you at a loss. Our agents will always save lives as much as possible.”
As the number of borders increases, if the policies of the Trump era are over, the US Customs and Border Protection Director says we are facing a “full crisis”
The Trump administration announced earlier this month that 70,000 immigrants were arrested at the southwest border in November, a 64% increase from 2019.
Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan told reporters at the time that the increase was mainly composed of adult men from Mexico, who had an average of 2,300 times a day in November.

Morgan added that in recent months, the number of families and unaccompanied children (UAC) from northern triangle countries has been increasing.
