Is is still a racist law?

Using the standards of the Democratic party and the mainstream press, this story should be headlined

Racist President Calls Out Troops To Enforce Racist Law

But it isn't...

Obama to Deploy 1,200 National Guard Troops to the US-Mexico Border
President Obama has authorized the call-up of 1,200 National Guard troops to the US Mexico border, an administration official confirms, requesting $500 million in supplemental funds.

The enhanced border protection and law enforcement will, “provide intelligence; surveillance and reconnaissance support; intelligence analysis; immediate support to counternarcotics enforcement; and training capacity until Customs and Border Patrol can recruit and train additional officers and agents to serve on the border,” an administration official says.
So after a month and a half of excoriating the people of Arizona as racists for having the temerity to want their public officials enforcing Federal immigration law, the President is going to send troops to the border to ... enforce Federal immigration law.

And somewhere along the line, no doubt, he'll tell us that "I've always said the borders must be protected..." Or, "there are some who say that we cannot protect the borders, but I say..."

What he will not say, under any circumstances, is "I'm sorry that I, and members of my staff, and members of the political party of which I am the de facto head, castigated the people of Arizona for taking reasonable steps to protect themselves and their property."
