Remember when Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser made a request for help from the National Guard in dealing with the thousands of illegal migrants being shipped into the sanctuary city from Texas and Arizona, who, frankly, have had enough of the current administration doing absolutely nothing to secure the border and stop the current crisis?

And you know what? I do not, in any capacity, feel sorry for her. Not even a little. This is only a taste of what folks living in border states have suffered with over the course of the last year and a half that Biden has been in office.
TheBlaze report said, “Kelly Bulliner Holly, the executive secretary of the DOD, responded to Bowser’s July 19 letter to the office of Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin, writing: ‘After careful consideration the Department has concluded it cannot fulfill your request.’”
“Holly highlighted the fact that the city already has access to federal funding through SAMU First Response, a non-governmental organization that has itself received funding via the Emergency Food and Shelter Program by FEMA. Responding to the language of Bowser’s request that the influx of over 4,000 illegals constitutes a ‘humanitarian crisis,’ Holly noted that SAMU First Response ‘supplements funding for humanitarian relief efforts by government and social service organizations for the purposes of providing shelter and supportive services to families and individuals,’” the report continued.
