Mayor Blames Border States For D.C. ‘Disaster’
Mayor Bowser has despatched two letters to Secretary of Protection Lloyd Austin requesting assistance from the National Guard. In a single, she blamed Texas and Arizona for the state of affairs in Washington, saying, “The migrant disaster dealing with our metropolis and our nation by way of merciless political gamesmanship from the Governors of Texas and Arizona have to be handled on the federal stage.”
Upon listening to Mayor Bowser, who has prided the nation’s capital on being a “sanctuary metropolis,” now bemoan the truth that Washington D.C. is being inundated with migrants, Gov. Abbott issued an announcement:
“Washington, D.C. lastly understands what Texans have been coping with each single day, as our communities are overrun and overwhelmed by 1000’s of unlawful immigrants due to President Biden’s open border insurance policies. If the mayor needs an answer to this disaster, she ought to name on President Biden to take instant motion to safe the border—one thing he has didn’t do.
“The true ongoing humanitarian disaster is alongside our southern border. The Biden Administration is permitting historic ranges of unlawful immigrants, weapons, and lethal medication like fentanyl to surge into our state.
“Texas continues stepping up to answer this disaster by deploying Texas Nationwide Guard troopers and DPS troopers, constructing our personal border wall, busing migrants to our nation’s capital, and now sending unlawful immigrants again to the border.”

One of the best half? D.C. taxpayers shouldn’t should foot the invoice for unlawful immigrants coming to Washington. Bowser acknowledged,
“Native taxpayers are usually not selecting up the tab. They need to not choose up the tab. We actually want a coordinated federal response. We all know that it’s carried out for refugees who come to the states from all factors of the world and the identical must be carried out within the state of affairs.”
Mayor Bowser in DC needs the Nationwide Guard known as up as a result of she will’t deal with the trickle of migrants whereas the border states have them coming in like a fireplace hose. 🤦♂️ Hmmmm…I assumed she did not just like the Nationwide Guard, like on January 6? 🤔

If Muriel Bowser complains loudly sufficient to the appropriate individuals, will the busloads of immigrants being dropped off in her metropolis be taken someplace else? Purple states maybe? Time will inform. For now, it’s simply the newest on the Democrat record of “okay for thee however not for me.”
They do not name it flyover nation for nothing.
