Executive Orders

Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution clearly restricts the power to make laws: 

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States“.

Presidential Executive Orders are clearly “legislative powers”. 

We oppose the use of Presidential executive orders that make law or otherwise usurp the Constitutional authority and responsibilities of the legislative and judicial branches. This Constitutionally subversive practice must be stopped by Congress. All unconstitutional executive orders must be repealed.
