“You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here,” isn’t just the mantra of tired, overworked bartenders at 2 a.m. It's also the refrain of left-wing politicians who have no problem leaving the U.S. border open to hoards of illegal aliens - so long as the crowds, and the financial burden they bring with them, don’t show up on their doorstep.

Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser says she wants President Joe Biden to “work across state lines” to “prevent” migrants from being put on buses and being sent to her city to overwhelm local homeless shelters and overextend resources.

Because it’s perfectly fine for small border towns to be overrun with migrants thanks to brainless liberal policies – just don’t dump them in a liberal city’s front yard.

On Sunday’s Face the Nation, Bowser was asked to respond to a Washington Post report published last week purporting that D.C.’s “homeless shelters were filling up” and that charitable groups were “getting overwhelmed” by the influx of bus-fulls of illegal aliens showing up in the nation’s capital from Arizona and Texas, to the tune of about 15 per week.

To which the mayor responded that migrants were being “tricked” into coming to D.C., when they had actually intended to go elsewhere.

“How significant is this influx? How many people?”

“Well, this is a very significant issue,” Bowser responded. “We have for sure called on the federal government to work across state lines to prevent people from really being tricked to getting on buses.

“We think they’re largely asylum seekers who are going to final destinations that are not Washington, D.C.,” she added. “I fear that they’re being tricked into nationwide bus trips when their final destinations are places all over the United States of America.”

A record-smashing 1.5 million-plus illegal aliens were caught crossing into the U.S. between October 1 and May 31, with four months left to go in a fiscal year that’s already seen historic numbers of apprehensions along the Southwest U.S. border. Hundreds of thousands more “got-aways” have been caught on surveillance footage, but not nabbed by agents. Multiple border towns have already declared states of emergency, while the Arizona legislature recently allocated more than half a billion toward border security in lieu of the federal government’s inaction.

But while Washington, D.C. can't seem to handle 15 busloads of migrants a week, border agents and the towns along the Rio Grande are somehow supposed to handle thousands of illegal aliens every single day.

Welcome to the border, Bowser.
