DC Mayor Bowser National Guard Request denied

President Joe Biden’s administration has denied a request for National Guard assistance from Washington’s mayor Muriel Bowser.

Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, made the request in July due to the surge in illegal immigrants the District of Columbia has seen since authorities in Texas and Arizona began offering free rides to the city for those freed by federal officials.

Washington officials asked for 150 Guard personnel to help non-governmental groups dealing with the surge, as well as additional personnel to shuttle immigrants from temporary locations to their final destinations inside the United States.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, a Biden appointee, made the decision to decline the request, a military spokesman told The Epoch Times in an email on Aug. 5.

“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,” the spokesman said.

DCNG stands for D.C. National Guard; SAMU First Response is a nonprofit; FEMA is the Federal Emergency Management Agency and EFSP refers to the Emergency Food and Shelter Program.

Spokespersons for Bowser did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Only presidents have the authority to authorize National Guard deployment in Washington, and they must receive a request from local officials.
