Yet another bus of migrants arrived in Washington, DC, on Friday, a day after Mayor Muriel Bowser asked for federal help dealing with the influx.

The bus — only the latest in a monthslong effort to transport illegal migrants to Washington as a statement on federal inaction at the border — came from Texas. Four thousand migrants have arrived in DC in recent months, Bowser said Thursday.

The migrant group arrived just after 6 am Friday, and was dropped off near Union Station.

The mayor, who has championed accepting migrants entering the country illegally as a human rights issue, requested the DC National Guard be activated indefinitely to assist with what she called a “humanitarian crisis.”

Goliad County Sheriff Roy Boyd, who has called for Abbott to declare the border crisis an “invasion,” told Acesparks Digital: “If Mayor Bowser wants to see what a real humanitarian crisis looks like, she is welcome to come to Texas and witness one first hand.”
