In June 2020 during the mass riots in her city, Washington DC Mayor Bowser kicked out ALL of the National Guard troops that were sent there to restore peace.
Mayor Bowser announced at the time she was examining every legal question about President Trump’s authority to send troops, even the National Guard from other states, to the District of Columbia.
Mayor Bowser told reporters, “I have the authority and have not requested guard from any state.”
The DC Mayor then later evicted ALL NATIONAL GUARD from any Washington DC hotel.
Days later violent leftists defaced the WWII Memorial and Korean War Memorial and torched a 200-year-old church.

Bowser did nothing to stop the ransacking of our nation’s capital by leftists in 2020.
On Thursday morning, Mayor Bowser declared a state of emergency due to the migrant buses dropping off economic migrants in Washington DC.
Washington DC claims to be a sanctuary city.

These people are crazy.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Thursday declared a public emergency regarding thousands of migrants being bused to the city from Texas and Arizona. Bowser said the city will establish an Office of Migrant Services to help those arriving in the city. This comes after the Pentagon twice rejected a request from D.C. seeking the National Guard’s assistance in what Bowser has called a “growing humanitarian crisis.” According to Bowser’s office, “the Office of Migrant Services will provide support with reception, respite, meals, temporary accommodations, urgent medical needs, transportation, connection to resettlement services and other needs as they are determined.” “With this plan, we are staying true to our D.C. values and building a system that will support a compassionate, consistent, and well-coordinated response,” said Bowser. “This is a new challenge for D.C., but I feel confident that if we lead with our values, and if we put the right systems in place –– which we are doing with the Office of Migrant Services, then we will lead a response that makes our community proud.”
