and an Executive Order must be constitutional
EO 6102 and EO 9066 sort of punch a hole in that idea don't they?...
Nope. The issue is who decides if an Executive Order is unconstitutional. And here's a hint: it's not you.

The question of constitutionality is one for the court. You might have an opinion, but your opinion doesn't really count. The opinions of courts on such things will affect the lives and property of real people in the real world. Yours will not.

Note also that something could be a bad idea or bad policy and still be constitutional.
