Don’t they sound like “wonderful additions to the fabric of America,” as Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin (D) called them back in August?

The narrative of Barack Obama’s virtual amnesty for 60,000 “poor unaccompanied children” took a hit this week as two illegals escaped from DHS custody and led police in two states on a 220-mile crime spree.
Two teenage illegal aliens who were allowed into the U.S. in recent months by Barack Obama, broke out of a detention facility in Illinois and committed two carjackings, including of a 91-year-old Navy veteran.
The Guatemalan illegals, ages 16 and 17, were eventually caught. That’s the good news. The bad news is that despite their crimes, they will remain in the United States.
As TRN has reported for months, Obama engineered this border bum rush of tens of thousands of illegals, who swarmed an overwhelmed Border Patrol and were quickly transported to all 50 states — skipping critical medical checks that have led to the spread of dangerous disease in at least 14 states.
But in conjunction with a lapdog media, the Administration and leading Democrats have pretended these illegals were all helpless, harmless “children” escaping crime and miserable poverty in Central America.
What we we not told is that of the 60,000 “unaccompanied minors”, only 20% were actually children under 13, but another 20% had known criminal records, including violent crimes, gang activity, and drug and human smuggling — and were still allowed to stay and even transported to every state in America.
One such state was Illinois, where these two carjackers went. The teenagers were being held at the Maryville Academy in Des Plaines, a suburb of Chicago. In July, Democrat Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel welcomed the illegals, saying he would take more than 1,000: “While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions,” Emanuel said to CNN
Well it looks like they brought some “dangerous conditions” into America with them. According to the DailyMail:
Police say the teens escaped about 6am and committed a carjacking of a victim nearby about 40 minutes later. During the carjacking, the teen threatened the victim with violence, Des Plaines police Commander Randy Akin told MailOnline.
They drove 165 miles southwest to Moline, Illinois, where they targeted the 91-year-old man at a Walmart about noon. The teens threatened to beat up the 91-year old Navy WWII veteran, and made him give them his keys.
The teens then sped off and hit a parked car on their way out of the parking lot. They headed west on Interstate 80 into Iowa. They made it 80 miles, past Iowa City, when they were finally caught. Troopers used spike strips to shred the teens’ tires and then pulled them over.
The teens did not speak, and only indicated that they spoke little English, Lt Jones said.
