The Hill reports DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has asked for the National Guard to be activated to help manage an influx of illegal aliens into the city. Bowser has sent a letter to the White House which says in part:
Our ability to assist people in need at this scale is very limited. Instead of rolling up their sleeves and working with the Biden/Harris Administration on a real solution, Governors Abbot and Ducey have decided to use desperate people to score political points. … With pledges from Texas and Arizona to continue these abhorrent operations indefinitely, the situation is dire, and we consider this a humanitarian crisis—one that could overwhelm our social support network without immediate and sustained federal intervention.
How do things which cannot go on come to an end?
Slowly. And then suddenly.
