American attorney, political scientist and former police officer, Gregory Krasovsky, gave an interview to Russia 24 TV News (Russia's state owned equivalent of CNN) on the shooting of a Russian Citizen, Evgeniy Gluschenko, by a U.S. Border Patrol Agent on the border with Mexico in Arizona.
What's the moral of the story?
1. Don't try to cross the border illegally into the U.S. from Mexico, Canada or elsewhere.
2. Don't resist arrest or try to flee when confronted by armed US law enforcement personnel, including DHS federal agents in CBP, ICE ERO & HSI.
3. Don't assault U.S. law enforcement, scuffle with them or attempt to grab hold of their weapons, as you could be shot.
4. Don't try to enter the U.S. under false pretenses (e.g. with a tourist visa, with a false identity or document or by submitting false and misleading information & documentation in your visa application & interview) with the intention of applying for political asylum.
5. Don't violate U.S. laws related to visas, immigration, border crossings and interactions with federal officials and law enforcement, as you could face detention, arrest, prison time, deportation and even a life-time ban on entry into the U.S.
6. If you have a valid claim for political asylum and refugee status (with bona fide evidence), then please present your claim properly to U.S. officials (DHS or Department of State) either at a U.S. Embassy abroad or at an established U.S. border crossing using proper procedures.
7. If you are trying to join your family in the U.S. and have been denied entry or been deported before, then please don't try to enter the U.S. illegally and risk injury, death or detention, imprisonment and/or deportation.
8. If you have any questions on applying for a U.S. visa or entry into the U.S., including as a visitor, worker, refugee / applicant for asylum, then please seek the advice of a competent and experiernced U.S. immigration attorney.

Arizona border patrol SHOOTS Russian citizen ‘suspected’ of crossing from Mexico into US illegally
16 Nov, 2019 03:48 / Updated 3 days ago
A Russian citizen was shot and wounded by a US Border Patrol agent who claims he suspected the man of sneaking into the country illegally.
The Russian consulate has confirmed his identity and requested access to the man.
“A Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent discharged his service-issued firearm in an incident near Lukeville, Arizona,” the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) said in a statement on Friday, adding the wounded man was then transported to a hospital in Phoenix by helicopter for treatment of “non-life threatening injuries.”
The agent claims a “physical altercation” broke out as he tried to apprehend the suspect, in which he allegedly had no other choice but to fire his weapon. The man – identified to Sputnik as 37-year-old Evgeny Gluschenko by the Russian consulate general – remains in the hospital.
The incident is now under investigation by both the FBI and the border patrol’s Use of Force Incident Team.

REFUSED TO HELP DIPLOMATS: WHAT IS KNOWN ABOUT THE RUSSIAN, INJURED WHILE TRYING TO CROSS THE U.S. BORDER
magictr | November 19, 2019
In a press-service of the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Houston (TX) reported that Russian citizen Evgeny Gluschenko was injured by an employee of the border service of the United States while attempting to illegally cross the U.S. border.
He also stated that he was not interested in the help of Russian diplomats.
About it writes “Interfax”.
“When our staff tried to contact him, he flatly refused to communicate. From which we conclude that he does not need our help”, — reported in the Russian diplomatic mission.
The press service said that Russian diplomats spoke with his wife who is in USA and wants to meet him. Glushchenko still in the hospital, as he is normal. This is not the first attempt of the Russians to enter the territory of the United States. He was deported in the late summer and fall, again tried to cross the border.
The Consulate General “keeps the issue under control,” and Russian diplomats “ready at any moment to communicate with employees if there are any questions or problems.”
November 14, the citizen of Russia Glushchenko, born in 1982 was wounded on the border of US and Mexico in Arizona while attempting to cross the border. He was taken by helicopter to a hospital in the city of Goodyear. According to media reports, in 2018, he tried together with his pregnant wife illegal to enter the United States from Mexico, was detained and then deported.
The Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Houston has stated that they intend to obtain consular access to the victim and to be in contact with the state police.
While in the Consulate General are unable to specify who is Glushchenko, as he and his wife were in Mexico, then arrived in the U.S. and why he was deported, and his wife remained in the United States.
An illegal immigrant from Russia has been starving in an American prison for almost a month now: he does not want to return home

US authorities won a court order to force-feed an exhausted Russian immigrant who went on a hunger strike at the Arizona Immigrant Content Center.
Yevgeny Glushchenko began to starve 19 June. During this time, he lost 25% of weight, which can lead to irreversible damage to organs and, possibly, death, wrote district judge Stephen Logan in his order on Monday.
The authorities claim that the Russian refuses to eat, explaining that he is either not hungry or will not eat until he is released from custody.
Glushchenko was taken into custody in September near Lukville, Arizona, after he and his wife penetrated the Mexican border, breaking the desert. Wife and son were released from custody.
His lawyers said in court records that Glushchenko and his wife fled Russia to Mexico after receiving "repeated threats from the government" because of his work with Western charities and refusing to pay bribes to the Federal Security Service, a Russian intelligence agency.
After his arrest, Glushchenko was detained at the immigration detention center in Eloy, south-east of Phoenix.
Russians had to be deported to their homeland commercial flight 17 June. The trip was canceled after he refused to get into the car that would take him to the airport.
The federal authorities won two court decisions that allowed Glushchenko to be forcibly fed.
Judge Logan gave an emergency order after the Russian remained in the hospital after the last hospitalization.
By his order, the judge gave a permanent permit to the federal authorities to force-feed the Russian while he is in the Immigration Center or until he stops the hunger strike.
Christopher Thomas, one of Glushchenko’s lawyers in the force-feeding trial, rejected requests for comment.
