On Wednesday, police arrested two Guatemalan nationals, ages 16 and 17, following a high speed chase which ended on Interstate 80, just outside Iowa City.
Around 6 a.m., the pair walked out of Maryville Academy in Des Plaines, Ill., and committed their first carjacking of the day. They then drove 165 miles to a Walmart in Moline, Iowa, where they ordered a 91-year-old man out of his car, according to police.
Moline Police Det. Scott Williams stated: "They obviously chose him to take his vehicle. He walked with a cane. They watched him go in and get his medication from the VA."
The illegal aliens smashed into a car on the way out of the parking lot, driving another 220 miles in the stolen vehicle, until so-called 'stop sticks' were thrown in their path by Iowa state troopers. Their actions were captured on store surveillance video. The two suspects came to the U.S. in the recent surge of illegal aliens flooding across our border from Central America and Mexico.
The Daily Mail reported:
The teens had been transferred to the Illinois facility after crossing the US-Mexico border as unaccompanied minors and requesting asylum in the United States.
Maryville Academy is a residential facility for at-risk and mentally-ill youths. The U.S. Health and Human Services agency has sent a number of so-called "unaccompanied minors" to the facility in the last several months.
Though U.S. Border Patrol agents have reported that many of the more than 60,000 minors who have come to this country illegally over the last several months, are gang members, Obama administration policy demands that they be allowed to enter. Many of these teens have been identified as members of the hyper-violent Latin American gang known as MS-13.
Wednesday's incidents have reportedly prompted federal officials to order a "security assessment" at all facilities currently housing illegal aliens.
