D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, stated Thursday she has sent out the call for the National Guard to be deployed into the city to help deal with the illegal migrants who are flooding into the nation’s capital, thanks in large part to buses from border states like Texas and Arizona.
Ever since President Joe Biden took the Oval Office, he’s done nothing to slow or stop the influx of migrants coming across the border in staggering numbers. Thousands upon thousands of these individuals have entered the country illegally, burdening border cities and counties to the point they have no resources left to help anyone.
According to the Daily Wire, Bowser went on to offer a description of the situation, referring to it as a “growing humanitarian crisis” of “people who are seeking asylum coming across the country to get to their final destinations,” going on to state that D.C., would “continue to pursue federal involvement.”
Now the left wants to take action on the influx of migrants coming into the country illegally, since it is negatively impacting their lives and communities directly. They are getting a taste of what it is like to be a state located along the border.
“We’ve had a number of discussions,” she explained. “We’ve facilitated FEMA’s involvement with a million-dollar grant that has now been increased to work with a lead nonprofit agency. We’ve facilitated using those grant funds to set up respite center in a neighboring jurisdiction and I’ve also asked the Secretary of the Army to deploy the D.C. National Guard to help lead that effort.”
The Democratic mayor then went on to say that officials need “space” to house the influx of migrants.
“I’ve asked for the deployment of the guard as long as we need the guard to deal with the humanitarian crisis that we expect to escalate,” she added. “The number of people crossing the border seeking asylum, we expect to only go up, we need to make sure that there is a national response, not an ad hoc city by city, state by state response.”
DC @MayorBowser calls for activating the National Guard to handle the influx of illegal migrants into the city, calling it a “humanitarian crisis.”

The Daily Wire reported, “Bowser had sent letters to President Joe Biden’s administration and the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency asking that the National Guard be indefinitely activated and for permission to use the D.C. Armory as a processing center.”
Bowser has not, as of this writing, received an answer to either one of the letters, according to a report from NBC.
According to the report, a whopping 150 buses with over 4,000 migrants have been sent from Arizona and Texas to Washington, D.C. over the course of the last three months.

Isn’t this simply delightful to see?
All that the states along the southern border have been asking for is help to seal off the border areas to prevent so many people from flooding across into the United States.
The refusal to provide help — which is likely part of a purposeful strategy to play with voter demographics — has now created problems for D.C., just as it has for those areas located along the border.
Will the left learn its lesson?
Probably not. All that matters is the agenda.
