The national guard was never really part of the state government.
Their uniforms are no different than mine and I'm active duty.
They have state emblems for unit patches, I have division emblems on mine.
Otherwise they both say US ARMY on the chest.
Unlike the National Guard who are normally under the command of the governor of their state.

Ebola could be argued to have the potential to affect US assets and infrastructure, with the hysteria, what governor would say "no"?
Better to stop the fire at the source instead of pissing when it gets close.

I know it is rude to answer a question with a question but:
Where was this particular question in 2003 when ( another president ) sent members of the National Guard into Iraq as part of an "invasion of a sovereign foreign nation"?
