Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott has been organizing buses and has brought about 5.100 migrants to Washington, DC in an effort to highlight his criticism of Biden administration’s immigration policies. Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser declared DC a sanctuary city during the Trump era, vowing to fight the federal government against deportation and promising free housing, health care and education to illegal aliens. She is asking for aid from the DC National Guard and is also requesting to use an an arena near the Capitol Building to use as a processing center for the migrants. Abbott’s office says that the DC Mayor’s request for help proves his point about the need for the White House to better address its immigration policies., and he vowed to continue to send buses.

Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser is asking for aid from the DC National Guard to help with migrants being sent by bus from Texas, according to a letter obtained by CNN affiliate WUSA.

The mayor’s office says the city is now at a “tipping point.”

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has been organizing buses to bring migrants to DC in an effort to highlight his criticism of Biden administration’s immigration policies. According to Abbott’s office, more than 5,100 migrants have arrived in Washington from Texas on more than 135 buses.

The first bus arrived in mid-April, but city officials and non-government organizations working with the migrants — who travel voluntarily — have been increasingly concerned about the pace of arrivals over recent weeks.

The mayor’s office is requesting to convert the DC Armory, Joint Base Bolling, Fort McNair or another “suitable federal location in the National Capital Region” into a processing center for the migrants. The regional welcome center established to aid the migrants in Montgomery County, Maryland, is at capacity, according to the request.

Abbott’s office says that DC’s request for help proves his point about the need for the White House to better address its immigration policies.

“Washington, DC, finally understands what Texans have been dealing with every single day, as our communities are overrun and overwhelmed by thousands of illegal immigrants thanks to President (Joe) Biden’s open border policies,” Abbott’s press secretary Renae Eze said in a statement to CNN.

“If the mayor wants a solution to this crisis, she should call on President Biden to take immediate action to secure the border — something he has failed to do,” Eze added.

Bowser called for a federal solution on Thursday.

Only 5,100? It should be triple that number.
