EXCLUSIVE: Video from a contact in Malibu shows a panga boat full of suspected illegal immigrants landing on a beach near his home this week. Incredibly rare to see this so far north, as Malibu is 100+ miles away from the border. Unclear if anyone caught, awaiting a CBP response. pic.twitter.com/n9tIIAaHSh

One of the most famous residents is President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
Malibu, known for its luxury homes and celebrity residents, has become a focal point of this recent event, drawing attention to the broader immigration challenges in the U.S.
“The U.S. Coast Guard got a call around 7:30 a.m. regarding the 25-foot-long vessel, which is often a type of boat used by human and drug smugglers,” the report found.
Ranker.com reported: “Of all the famous people in California, those who have homes in Malibu get to live in one of the most in-demand locations for those seeking privacy and luxury.”
“With pristine beaches, sprawling estates, and majestic mountains, it’s no wonder that so many celebrities have homes in this Los Angeles County beach community. Malibu celebrity homes are some of the most beautiful in the area and can often only be accessed by private roads not open to the public. For these reasons, several famous actors, actresses, musicians, and comedians have made this Southern California city their home.”
