D.C. Mayor Bowser Begs for National Guard Troops to Help With Illegal Alien Influx

On Thursday, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, asked the National Guard for help handling illegal aliens being sent to the nation’s capital.

The Daily Wire reports:

Bowser described the situation as a “growing humanitarian crisis” of “people who are seeking asylum coming across the country to get to their final destinations,” saying that Washington, D.C. would “continue to pursue federal involvement.”

“We’ve had a number of discussions,” she said. “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 mayor also said that officials need “space” to house the 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 continued. “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.”


Republicans were quick to respond to Bowser’s hypocrisy, such as U.S. Rep. Yvette Herrell of New Mexico’s Second Congressional District:

It would appear that greg Abbott and a couple other governors are really putting the squeeze and joe and the ho’,…. forcing them to realize that they cannot keep this C.S.,…. Illegality up,….
and now they are having to do what border states had to do months ago,…. Put the state and national guard on alert and send them to help out,…. My own Great-grand daughter had to pull six months on the border as Provost marshal to help out,…. at del Rio of all places,…. NOPE Just another FAILURE BY JOE AND THE HO’

Palpable leftist elitist hypocrisy. I advocate that the NEXT 100 bus loads of “migrants” be delivered directly to the honorable mayor’s residence.

Uranium-233 is a fissile isotope of uranium that is bred from thorium-232 as part of the thorium fuel cycle. Uranium-233 was investigated for use in nuclear weapons and as a reactor fuel. It has been used successfully in experimental nuclear reactors and has been proposed for much wider use as a nuclear fuel. Will not explode, Nuclear reactors instead of Chinese solar panels.

You wouldn’t have that need if your buddy Bozo Biden wasn’t letting them all in now would you? Look in a mirror for YOUR failure.
