The Pentagon denied Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s request to activate the National Guard in order to assist with the literal shipments of migrants arriving in the nation’s Capital. It was the second time the agency denied Bowser’s request.

Perhaps Texas Governor Gregg Abbott’s plan to send illegal immigrants who have crossed the southern border to larger liberal cities is having an impact. Abbott and other leaders of states that border Mexico have suffered from limited resources compared to the high numbers of border crossers. Abbott designed a system where individuals were quite literally bused from Texas to D.C. and New York.

“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” reports Fox News.

On Monday, Defense Department executive secretary Kelly Bulliner Holly wrote in a letter to Bowser making it clear the D.C. National Guard is not fully trained nor capable to assist migrants. The department also claimed “activation” would lead to “diminished readiness” for the troops.

“The DCNG has no specific experience in or training for this kind of mission or unique skills for providing facility management, feeding, sanitation or ground support,” Holly wrote in the letter, which was reviewed by Fox News.

“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.”

Bowser and her progressive liberal policies can’t stand up to merely thousands of migrants who have entered the city; meanwhile those same policies she and he colleagues have made have created the national crisis.
