Sen. Ted Cruz zinged Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser when she declared a humanitarian crisis after a whopping 4,000 migrants were dropped off in her sanctuary city by buses from Texas and Arizona. That’s a tiny fraction of what little border towns have been dealing with, but still, Bowser requested help from the National Guard to get a handle on this massive influx of migrants. The Pentagon said no then, and according to CBS News, the Pentagon is saying no a second time.

CBS News reports:

In a letter to Bowser Monday, the Pentagon said the D.C. Guard is not trained or equipped to care for migrants, and the D.C. Armory is not air conditioned, making it unsuitable to accommodate anyone overnight, according to a copy of the letter reviewed by CBS News.

The Department of Defense in its letter also acknowledged it is aware of concerns associated with uniformed military personnel in direct contact with migrants in a domestic operation.

“The DC National Guard has no specific experience in or training for this kind of mission or unique skills for providing facility management, feeding, sanitation, or ground support,” the letter states.

Huh, the D.C. National Guard isn’t trained or equipped to care for migrants. So who is? New York City, another sanctuary city, has complained that it can’t handle the influx of migrants either.

We still get a chuckle from progressives who condemn the “brutality” of dropping off migrants in New York and D.C.
