The Department of Defense on Friday denied Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s request for 150 National Guard troops amid, what she called, a “humanitarian crisis,” as an influx of migrants arrived in the nation’s capital.

Bowser, last week, requested that the D.C. National Guard help with the thousands of migrants arriving to Union Station in Washington D.C., and requested that the D.C. Armory be used as a processing center.

The article goes on to state the following:

A senior defense official told Fox News Friday that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin “has declined to approve the DCHSEMA request for DCNG to provide personnel and the DC Armory to assist the NGO, SAMU First Response, with transportation and reception of migrants arriving in the D.C. area.

The official said, “We have determined providing this support would negatively impact the readiness of the DCNG and have negative effects on the organization and members. We understand SAMU First Response has received grant funding through FEMA’s Emergency Food and Shelter Program, and has indicated that sufficient EFSP funds exist at this point to provide migrant assistance.”

Last week Bowser said, “We are focused, and we continue to be very focused on having the federal government do its part and take the lead in what we see as a growing humanitarian crisis with people who are seeking asylum coming across the country to get to their final destinations.”

CNN reporter Priscilla Alvarez tweeted Friday, The Pentagon declined Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s request for aid from the DC National Guard to help with migrants entering the city by bus from Texas, @barbarastarrcnn reports. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin rejected the request because the DoD has ‘determined providing this support would negatively impact the readiness of the DCNG and have negative effects on the organization and members,’ per an official.”

  4. Suck it up like TX. AZ, and other states have. I don’t want my taxpayer dollars going to help you. You said zero about what was happening to southern states all many months.

  5. He declined it because it would look bad on the administration if the people thought that only a few thousand aliens could be seen as a humanitarian crisis while hundreds of thousands flooding into towns and cities in the south west is considered not a problem.

  6. Joe Biden get up off your depends wearing ass and start doing your job this is what you wanted you got it now deal with it the Biden administration is sole responsible for this they pressure this they push this they took away a good process just because it had Trump’s name on it there you go Joe Biden what are you going to do now ???

  7. It’s easy to run your mouth but now it’s time for action and you want help? Heh heh cry me a river ,doing what all libs do,create a problem and try to make others responsible for cleaning up your mess, deal with it

  8. Bowser you want them in America just not in your state/area. Texas has to deal with millions . So now deal with it too!

  9. Their “final destination” needs to be their country of origin. One giant loop back home. Every day it’s more and more obvious no matter where I am that we’re being invaded by people who can’t or won’t speak English.
