Greyhound bus suspect is an illegal immigrant who has been deported before

Authorities identified the suspect as Margarito Vargas-Rosas, an illegal immigrant who had previously been deported to Mexico.

He said the timeline and circumstances surrounding that deportation weren't provided.

About 40 passengers were safely removed from the bus around 12:30 a.m, police said.

Officials say Vargas-Rosas was pacing back in and forth between the isles - near the way back of the bus - and made gestures toward his waistband, indicating he had a gun.

Lt. Rory Zuerlein, of the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office, told the Daily Herald that passengers left the bus after it stopped and officers placed them in squad cars to keep them warm. Authorities said they began chasing the bus after getting a call from someone who was on board.

The Racine County Sheriff's Office located the bus heading south on Interstate 94 and authorities tried to initiate a traffic stop.

Kentucky Is the First State to Enact Medicaid Work Requirements
According to his own administration, the work requirements will result in 95,000 fewer people on Kentucky's Medicaid rolls. The Trump administration will allow states for the first time to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients.

Police put out spike strips to make the Greyhound bus stop.

"The driver indicated he did not stop because he thought it was a training exercise by law enforcement, or else he did not see us and thought we were trying to stop someone else", the Sheriff said.

According to police Vargas-Rosas was deported to Mexico in 2012 but now resides in Chicago. He complied without incident, Schmaling said, and was taken into custody.

The 36 other people on the bus were all unharmed.

Deputies then ordered Vargas-Rosas out of the bus at gunpoint.

"The roadway remains closed at this time while the investigation continues", Illinois State Police said. "He did make threats that he was going to shoot and kill".

The suspect is now being held at the Lake County, Illinois, jail.

Vargas-Rosas is being held at the Lake County Jail in Waukegan.

Schmaling said Vargas-Rosas lives in Chicago but works at a restaurant in Milwaukee.

The suspect could face additional charges when he arrives back in Racine County.

"There's a lot of places you can hide a gun on that bus as you can imagine", said Schmaling.

"I think he ultimately recognized that this was a serious event when we spiked his tires", Schmaling said. "The suspect did not have a weapon on him".
