Mayor Muriel Bowser was on “Face the Nation” this morning whining about illegal immigrants getting bused to Washington, D.C. and filling up homeless shelters in her city instead of staying in the border states where, we assume, she thinks they belong.



Margaret Brennan: The Washington Post reported last week that homeless shelters in DC. Were filling up and groups are getting overwhelmed by these busses that the governors of Texas and Arizona are sending here full of migrants. How significant is this influx? How many people?

Mayor Muriel Bowser: 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, DC. I worked with the White House to make sure that FEMA provided a grant to a local organization that is providing services to folks. But I fear that they’re being tricked into nationwide bus trips when their final destinations are places all over the United States of America.
