The federal government is once again refusing to aid Washington D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser in the processing of illegal immigrants.
Last week: The Biden Administration denied Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington DC support in processing illegal immigrants during a massive influx.
After request, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin denied the use of the national guard in the processing of migrants because deployment would “negatively impact” the readiness of the Guard.
According to a Department of Defense spokesperson, these requests are “taken very seriously,” yet remain unfulfilled. Bowser claims that she needs the guard for “logistical support.”
Bowser pleaded with the administration begging them to “to help prevent a prolonged humanitarian crisis in our nation’s capital resulting from the daily arrival of migrants in need of assistance”
In recent weeks, busses loaded with migrants have been arriving in Washington D.C. and in New York City.
Bowser has requested that the migrants be given special treatment by the Biden administration similar to that of war refugees. Bowser reports that the number of illegals that have arrived is upwards of 4,000.
“We, likewise, encourage the federal government, as I have expressed to White House officials, to help asylum seekers in ways similar to systems set up for Afghan and Ukrainian refugees,” the Mayor said in a statement.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has also been struggling with migrants, and the lack of cooperation from the federal government, which is exactly why he has begun removing them from his state and passing them along to governments who have indicated a welcoming attitude.
