The quote is a statement of a general principal of constitutional application universally. Trying to apply it narrowly to just that case is disingenuous. And itd be a FAR Easier to make the case that the drepression was a REAL "national security" situation.

But I could mention how you're desperate to denfend Trump and are looking for any and all loopholes real or imagined to try a justify his unconstitutional actions. And have avoided the main issue, and dodged the clear analogies presented in areas that you Would NOT want the same justifications applied.
