2 Escaped Illegal Immigrants Go On Multi-State Crime Spree; Elderly Veteran Among Victims

On Wednesday morning two illegal immigrant teenagers from Guatemala escaped from a secure detention facility in Des Plaines, Illinois where they were being held pending their immigration hearings.

A short time later the pair committed a carjacking in Des Plaines.

By noon the pair had traveled across the state and where at a Wal-Mart in Moline, Illinois where they committed another carjacking this time of a 91 year old veteran who was unharmed.  As the two escaped illegals exited the Wal-Mart parking lot they rammed another vehicle.

Some time later the stolen vehicle was spotted on Interstate 80 near Iowa City, Iowa.

Police used stop sticks to apprehend the escaped illegals 20 miles west of Iowa City.

Law enforcement officials say the pair will be held overnight in Iowa and are facing criminal charges in both Moline and Des Plaines.

Of the tens of thousands of illegal immigrant minors that flooded into the Rio Grande valley of Texas in the last year federal officials say nearly 400 of them were allowed to stay with a sponsor(parent, relative, family friend) in the Chicagoland area.

Illinois [mc_name name=’Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’K000360′ ] earlier this year reported that a third party care organization called the Heartland Alliance was helping the Department of Health and Humans Services Office of Refugee Resettlement care for nearly 750 more illegal immigrants. It should be noted that when the Heartland Alliance isn’t taking care of illegal immigrants they advocate for the liberal agenda including trying to increase the minimum wage.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama’s former chief-of-staff, has openly offered to have the city of Chicago host up to 1,000 more illegal immigrant like the two that escaped Wednesday.
