President Joe Biden’s Pentagon has rejected a request from Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) to activate the National Guard to help the city deal with illegal immigration.
Last week, Bowser asked the Biden administration to activate the National Guard in the capital because she said the city was at a “tipping point” with the wave of illegal immigration unleashed by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, cross-border and illegal aliens into Democratic-run sanctuary cities. .

According to Bowser, Abbott has sent more than 4,000 border-crossers and illegal aliens to the capital since April. On Friday, a Defense Department official confirmed to CNN that the federal agency denied Bowser’s request to activate the National Guard in the capital.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin refused the request Because the Ministry of Defense has “Determining to provide this support will negatively affect DCNG’s readiness And it has negative effects on the organization and its members.” [Emphasis added]
Abbott invited Bowser, along with New York City Mayor Eric Adams, to visit the US-Mexico border to witness the record level of illegal immigration that Texas has to deal with as a result of Biden’s extensive catch and release operation that continues to draw thousands of people. Border crossers and illegal aliens come to the United States every day.
Recently, Abbott said he was looking to expand into Democratic-run sanctuary cities that would send Texas border-crossers and illegal aliens not just to include Washington, D.C. and New York.
“We are helping these small communities by sending more buses to these communities and putting these new immigrants on the buses and sending them to Washington, DC,” Abbott said. “We are looking for other cities to send them to.”
