Obama Sends National Guard Troops to Border, Just in Time to Challenge the Arizona Law That Enforces Federal Statute (UPDATE)

Of course, you knew this was Kabuki, didn’t you?
UPDATE:

US National Guard troops being sent to the Mexican border will be used to stem the flow of guns and drugs across the frontier and not to enforce US immigration laws, the State Department said Wednesday.

The clarification came after the Mexican government urged (READ: Calderon threw a tantrum and Obama acquiesced, again) Washington not to use the additional troops to go after illegal immigrants.

President Barack Obama on Tuesday authorized the deployment of up to 1,200 additional troops to border areas but State Department spokesman Philip Crowley told reporters, “It’s not about immigration.” (READ: It’s not about securing the border or enforcing the law)

He said the move was “fully consistent with our efforts to do our part to stem, you know, violence, to interdict the flow of dangerous people and dangerous goods — drugs, guns, people.”

He said the extra troops would be used to free up civilians engaged in support functions so that law enforcement personnel can be increased along the 2,000-mile-long (3,200 kilometer) border.

Another example of Obama’s scatterbrained ROE.
What’s the difference between the flow of dangerous people and dangerous goods—drugs, guns, and people, from the rest of the illegal trespassers? Last I checked, anyone who crosses the border without proper authorization is an illegal alien.
What’s the exception here?  How are they to differentiate between a ‘smuggler’ and the rest of the illegals?
I guess this means, if a National Guard troop happens to see a caravan of illegals streaming across the border, they better be able to read the State Department’s mind. Gawd forbid they should profile.
Hat tip to Gateway Pundit.

The Obama Administration announced today that they would send 1,200 National Guard troops to the Mexican border…. In fact, today’s announcement was just a diversion. Barack Obama knew before today’s troop announcement that his Justice Department would challenge Arizona’s immigration law. His ingrained radicalism is predictable.

Tonight, a team of radical Obama Justice Department attorneys recommended that the U.S. government challenge the Arizona state immigration law.
FOX News reported:

“A team of Justice Department attorneys reviewing the new immigration law in Arizona has recommended that the U.S. government challenge the state law in federal court, but the recommendation faces an uncertain future and tough scrutiny from others in the Justice Department, sources with knowledge of the process tell Fox News.

Staff attorneys within the Justice Department recently sent higher-ups the recommendation. At the same time, the Justice Department’s Civil Division, which oversees the majority of immigration enforcement issues for the department, has drafted a “civil complaint” that would be filed in federal court in Arizona, sources said.

The draft complaint challenges the Arizona law as unconstitutional, saying it is illegal because it impedes federal law, according to the sources, who would not offer any more details about the draft complaint or the arguments made in it.

Two weeks ago, Attorney General Eric Holder told lawmakers such an issue was being considered by Justice Department lawyers reviewing the new law, which outlines and possibly broadens the authority of police to detain those suspected of being in the country illegally.”

The Arizona immigration law reinforces this national immigration law that has been in effect for 70 years. http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2010/05/another-obama-gaffe-immigrant-id-law-has-been-on-books-for-70-years/

If this dumb mutherfucker attacked illegal immigration as much as he does our national sovereignty, the problem would have been solved by now.

This is a sidesplitter:

The draft complaint challenges the Arizona law as unconstitutional, saying it is illegal because it impedes federal law, according to the sources, who would not offer any more details about the draft complaint or the arguments made in it.

Uh, NO. It’s inconvenient because the Arizona law is being enforced in correlation with federal statute.

I fully expect Holder to walk out of court with egg on his face.

    the guard will not make contact with anything ‘cept a desk and a pile of forms…they will be wasted man power…if they head for the gulf coast they will go home with a sence of accomplishment…if they go to the messican border they will return home really pissed off…who could blame them…..

    who wants to join in a catch and release crowd (USBP) or follow orders from an osamabama appointed ICE asswipe…I would NOT…
