Update October 11: Check this story in which the reporter actually refers to the illegal alien children as “refugees.” They are NOT refugees yet, that is what the No borders agitators want them to be.
It was just a matter of time before the violent crimes got underway and the Office of Refugee Resettlement now has to review security in 139 facilities scattered across America. Ho hum….
From the Daily Mail (thanks to all of our readers who sent it). The “vulnerable” children were just seeking asylum from crime in Guatemala. Remember also that ol’ Rahm Emanuel asked for a thousand of the little darlings!
Two teenage asylum seekers from Guatemala have escaped a detention center in Illinois and carjacked a 91-year-old Navy veteran.
The incident has prompted the federal government to order a security review at all 139 shelters across the country that house illegal immigrant minors, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.
The boys, age 16 and 17, were able to walk away unchallenged from Maryville Academy in Des Plaines, Illinois, outside Chicago, on Wednesday morning and carjack two victims before they were arrested more than 225 miles away outside Iowa City, Iowa, according to authorities.
Police say they targeted an elderly man in Moline, Illinois, who was picking up his prescription at Walmart.
They threatened him with violence, forced him out of his car and then sped off with his Buick LeSabre.
More than 60,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America have poured across the US-Mexico border in recent months and claimed asylum, saying they were fleeing the drug cartel violence in their impoverished home countries.
The federal government is spending $868 million this year to house and resettle them.
Read it all. There is lots more detail than you will get from the America press!
Here (in July) the Archdiocese of Chicago asked to be given federal bucks to house a bunch of the ‘Unaccompanied alien children’ at Maryville.
Lawrenceville could have been Maryville.
Lawrenceville, Virginia dodged a bullet when citizens protested a similar facility in a local college. The feds are now being sued for racism because they backed out of the deal.
I should have posted the story earlier, but here it is at Frontpage Magazine:
Last June, community outrage forced the federal government to cancel plans to house hundreds of illegal alien children at a closed college in Lawrenceville, VA. A complaint filed by St. Paul’s College and nonprofit Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME) of Virginia with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) alleges the move was racially motivated. Both entities also filed a separate complaint against the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) for canceling the lease, citing another alleged violation of anti-discrimination laws. “No one should block someone’s housing opportunity based on race or national origin,” said Helen O’Beirne Hardiman, fair housing director for HOME. “It’s unfair, and it’s completely illegal for government officials to step in to a private deal and say we don’t want Central American children coming to this community.”
I don’t get how this is a “private” deal when it’s all about federal grants and contracts.
Read it all. It is all about the money.
