D.C. mayor declares public emergency over thousands being bused from southern border

(The Center Square) – Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Thursday declared a public emergency over several thousand foreign nationals arriving in the nation’s capital from the southern border after the Pentagon twice rejected her request to activate the National Guard to provide assistance.

Bowser announced the emergency at a news conference in response to the governors of Arizona and Texas busing to the nation's capital nearly 10,000 foreign nationals who illegally crossed the Mexican border into their states.

While the mayor has repeatedly claimed her city is overwhelmed by the several thousand people arriving, a minimum of 5,000 people a day are being apprehended in five Border Patrol sectors in Texas alone.
