Democrat Mayor Suddenly Against Illegal Immigration, Says DC Homeless Shelters are Overcrowded


Apparently, democrats are just now discovering that illegal immigration leads to overcrowding.

Mayor Muriel Bowser was a guest on CBS’ “Face the Nation” over the weekend.

She was asked about a Washington Post article stating that homeless shelters were filling up in DC due to an influx of illegal migrants being bused in from Texas and Arizona.

Mayor Bowser claims that these migrants are being “tricked” into boarding buses from Texas and Arizona to DC.

Bowser says she wants the federal government to step in and do something about it:

“We have for sure called on the federal government to work across state lines to prevent people from really being tricked into getting on buses.”


It almost sounds like she’s against illegal immigration…

Maybe she should take up her concerns with the Biden Administration instead of Texas and Arizona.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser was asked by CBS host Margaret Brennan about reports that illegal immigrants were being bused in from places like Texas and Arizona, resulting in overcrowded homeless shelters in DC.

Here’s what Mayor Bowser had to say as reported by Fox News:

“Well, this is a very significant issue. We have for sure called on the federal government to work across state lines to prevent people from really being tricked into getting on buses. We think they’re largely asylum seekers who are going to final destinations that are not Washington, D.C. I worked with the White House to make sure that FEMA provided a grant to a local organization that is providing services to folks. I fear that they’re being tricked into nationwide bus trips when their final destinations are places all over the United States of America,” Bowser said.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sent multiple buses of illegal immigrants to Washington D.C. to manage the growing numbers pouring in from the border. His order to bus migrants to D.C. came after multiple border communities have complained about an influx of illegal immigrants.

Bowser claims that the migrants should be spread equally around the country.

Funny how she wasn’t previously worried about the overcrowding in Texas and Arizona though…

Daily Mail with more:

Washington, D.C.’s homeless shelters are filling up because Texas Governor Greg Abbott is sending busloads of migrants from his state to the nation’s capital, Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed Sunday morning.

The D.C. mayor is requesting that Abbott stop preventing migrants from getting to their final destinations.

Arizona’s Governor Doug Ducey followed Abbott’s lead earlier this summer as they both started sending migrants from their respective states to D.C. to take some of the load off of the migration crisis hitting border states.

Due to this initiative, homeless shelters in the nation’s capital are starting to cap out with these asylum-seekers.

Funny how democrats only care when it affects their cities.
