DC Mayor’s Second Request Denied For National Guard To Be Deployed
In early August of this year, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser requested that the Pentagon deploy the National Guard to help deal with the illegal aliens being bused to Washington D.C.
It was rejected.
The Pentagon on Friday rejected DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s request for National Guard troops to help with the influx of illegal aliens being bused in from Texas.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin rejected Bowser’s request, saying that it would hurt troop readiness, Reuters reported.
U.S. Defense Secretary Austin had rejected a request by the D.C. mayor for National Guard troops to help with migrants being sent into the city from Texas, saying that it would hurt troop readiness, a U.S. official says.

She sent another letter a week later again requesting the National Guard to be deployed.
Her second request has also been denied.
Defense Department executive secretary Kelly Bulliner Holly said that deploying the National Guard “would also result in a substantial readiness impact to the DCNG.”
For the second time, the Pentagon denied a request on Monday by Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser to activate the National Guard to assist with thousands of migrants who have been arriving in the nation’s capital in recent months.
Bowser first asked for National Guard help last month, but it was rejected by the Pentagon on Aug. 4. She then sent another letter on Aug. 11, requesting that 150 National Guard troops be deployed to “help prevent a prolonged humanitarian crisis in our nation’s capital resulting from the daily arrival of migrants.”
“Approval of this request would also result in a substantial readiness impact to the DCNG,” Holly continued. “Devoting the personnel or the facility for such an extended mission would force the cancellation or disruption of military training.”
Since April, around 7,000 Migrants have been bused from Texas to Washington DC.
Liberals are getting what they voted for — and they don’t like it.
They claim they are sanctuary cities — until the illegal migrants start flooding their city.
