the quote is stating a GENERAL constitutional Principal.

Now you would have point if the quote said something like.
Emergency doesn't increase MORTGAGE RIGHTS, or CONTACT LAW rights.
but IT DOES NOT.
the C.J. is setting forth the General principal by which the that case and ANY OTHER constitutional question turns.

C'mon dude, just Be real.
