Democrat mayors are calling for the federal government’s financial help to handle overcrowding at homeless shelters due to an influx of illegal migrants bussed around the country from the southern border.
From the Washington Examiner:
More than 150 buses traveling from Arizona and Texas have transported nearly 6,000 migrants to the nation’s capital over the past three months, and Democrats in Washington are complaining that they cannot accommodate the mass releases.
Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser was on Face the Nation and claimed illegal migrants were “being tricked into nationwide bus trips when their final destinations are places all over the United States of America.”
Bowser also called the situation “a very significant issue.”
New York City Mayor Eric Adams says the homeless shelters are overrun and is asking President Biden for “urgently needed resources.”
New York Post reports:
“If we do not get these urgently needed resources, we may struggle to provide the proper level of support our clients deserve, while also facing challenges as we serve both a rapidly growing shelter population and new clients who are seeking asylum,” Adams said in a prepared statement.
Critics commented on social media.

Every state is a border state.
Bowser and Adams are experiencing what those along the U.S.-Mexico southern border are dealing with over the consequences of President Biden’s open border policy and the influx of illegal migrants.
In May, the Borelli’s filmed illegal migrants bussed through New York late at night from Westchester County New York Airport to a Sloatsburg, New York rest stop.
