    "Korematsu v. United States, 323 U.S. 214 (1944), was a landmark
    United States Supreme Court case concerning the constitutionality of
    Executive Order 9066, which ordered Japanese Americans into
    internment camps during World War II regardless of citizenship.
    In a 6–3 decision, the Court sided with the government, ruling that the
    exclusion order was constitutional."

    "The Korematsu decision has not been explicitly overturned, although, in
    2011, the Department of Justice filed an official notice conceding that
    the then Solicitor General's defense of the internment policy had been in error. ...
    Feldman summarized the present view of the case as: "Korematsu's
    uniquely bad legal status means it's not precedent even though it hasn't
    been overturned." "

    "Following the 2016 election in which Donald Trump became President-elect,
    the Korematsu decision was raised as offering possible support for
    implementing his policies targeting all Muslims in the United States.
    The discussion arose in the context of comments from Carl Higbie and
    proposals from Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, an advisor to
    Trump on immigration matters."

    You are in love with Trump, aren't you?

    You want to have his orange babies.
