A couple of weeks ago we told you about the bus that dropped off a large amount of Hispanic individuals at the Des Moines Social Security office. Iowans have been keeping an eye out for similar situations and we’re sharing the information we’ve been provided.
First, the bus that stopped at the Des Moines Social Security office seems to be one of the buses that has been spotted in Ankeny.
Here was the bus at the Social Security office:
And here is a similar — if not the same — bus in Ankeny outside a hotel.
As you can see in this video, the side of the bus reads T. Bell Detassling:
“The first time I saw that red bus there were actually two,” said one witness. “Both of the same color configuration. They were at Walmart in Ankeny. And I observed a couple of males with masks on. I think one was Hispanic and the other was black. They were moving very quick through Walmart totally filling up shopping carts of food. And I mean FILLING UP.
“I then saw them head out to the buses and there must have been people in the buses because I could see them shoving all the food through the windows of the buses. They have been here several weeks now.”
Another reader contacted The Iowa Standard and said they were in Ankeny and saw the bus with what appeared to be immigrants around it and three “pockets” or “groups” throughout Delaware shopping area.
Yet another reader sent us photos of what appears to be the same bus from the Des Moines Social Security office. This time the bus was in Slater.
The individual estimated there are about 35 adult Hispanic males playing soccer.
And more buses were noticed in Iowa Falls.
“They were men, women and children,” a witness said. “The men were all in line at the service desk (at Walmart). Looked like they were cashing a check and the women and kids were shopping. I noticed a lot of htem were buying air mattresses and stuff. Also looked like someone had provided them with brand new clothing — some even Iowa homegrown shirts — but all were wearing new clothes.”
This witness asked the local police to look into it, but said they were “disrespected.”
