Sorry, Muriel Bowser —the National Guard won’t be coming to save you.

According to a report from Fox News, the Pentagon has once again denied D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s request for National Guard assistance to help with the migrant bus crisis in the nation’s capital.

“Bowser first asked for National Guard help last month, but it was rejected by the Pentagon on Aug. 4. She then sent another letter on Aug. 11, requesting that 150 National Guard troops be deployed to ‘help prevent a prolonged humanitarian crisis in our nation’s capital resulting from the daily arrival of migrants,’” Fox News reports.

The Defense Department has responded to her second letter.

“The DCNG has no specific experience in or training for this kind of mission or unique skills for providing facility management, feeding, sanitation or ground support,” Defense Department executive secretary Kelly Bulliner Holly wrote in the letter, which was reviewed by Fox News.

“Approval of this request would also result in a substantial readiness impact to the DCNG,” Holly continued. “Devoting the personnel or the facility for such an extended mission would force the cancellation or disruption of military training.”

More than 7,000 migrants have been bused from the southern border to D.C. by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

“Before we began busing migrants to New York, it was just Texas and Arizona that bore the brunt of all the chaos and problems that come with it,” Abbott said Friday. “Now, the rest of America can understand exactly what is going on.”

Bowser continues to call it a politically motivated stunt.

“We struggle with a broken immigration system in our country, and we know that cities alone cannot fix it,” Bowser tweeted. “We will continue working with federal partners and local NGOs on the best way to set up systems that allow us to manage an ongoing humanitarian crisis.”

“We are going to move forward with our planning to ensure that when people are coming through DC on their way to their final destination that we have a humane setting for them,” Bowser tweeted on Monday.
