An intelligence report compiled by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) reveals that large numbers of immigrants originating beyond Latin America are illegally crossing the southern U.S. border.

The report, which was leaked to Breitbart Texas by a source within the CBP who spoke on the condition of anonymity, records the numbers of individuals being caught or turning themselves in to Border Patrol agents from 2010 through July 2014. The illegal immigrants originated from more than 75 different countries.

Although the current spotlight on the illegal immigration front is on the large number of unaccompanied children from Central America who continually cross the border into South Texas, the CBP report indicates that the problem is more widespread. Among the overseas destinations listed in the report are Syria and Albania, from which smugglers send immigrants first to Central America and then northward across the U.S. border. Among other nations from which immigrants were caught entering the United States illegally:

• 1,443 people from China were apprehended while crossing the U.S. border so far this year, with an additional 1,803 people either turning themselves in to U.S. authorities at official ports of entry, or being caught attempting to illegally enter at the ports of entry.

• Twenty-eight individuals from Pakistan were apprehended while crossing the U.S. border this year, with another 211 individuals either turning themselves in or being caught at official ports of entry.

• Thirteen Egyptians were caught apprehended while crossing the U.S. border this year, with another 168 either turning themselves in or being caught at official ports of entry.

• Four individuals from Yemen were apprehended while crossing the U.S. border in 2014, with another 34 individuals either turning themselves in or being caught attempting to illegally enter at the ports of entry.

• Four individuals from Somalia were apprehended while crossing the U.S. border in 2014. Another 290 either turned themselves in or were apprehended at official ports of entry.

Since it is not possible to know how many people crossing our border illegally escape detection, the above figures suggest that many more people from across the globe have crossed our southern border, including some with terrorist connections or originating in nations where the current Ebola virus outbreak has occurred. Breitbart reports that the CBP data reveals that at least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in or have been caught attempting to illegally enter the United States between January and July of this year.
