I assume the constitution.
Then you assume his authority came from the Constitution?
Good, you're right.* Now follow me, here... if the authority for his actions came from the Constitution, and his actions were within that rightful authority, does it not follow that his actions were constitutional?
That has been my point since my first response to you.
* There were other Federal laws considered as well, such as 8 USC 1182(f) and 8 USC 1185(a), but those themselves derived their authority from the Constitution as well. All government authority originates with the Constitution.
