[2015] Ricardo Carreno (SEC/470): Executive Order


The President's source of authority to issue Executive Orders can be found in the Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution which grants to the President the "executive Power."Executive orders can be overruled by the courts or nullified by legislators after the fact, but until then they carry the full weight of federal and state law.

An executive order, is a directive handed down directly from a president without input from the legislative or judicial branches. Executive orders can only be given to federal or state agencies, not to citizens, although citizens are indirectly affected by them.

Executive order #13440 is used against terrorist suspects. Agents are allowed to set the type of detention and interrogation methods. It also limits suspects to basic necessities while detained.

Although executive orders used to take longer to get approval, the average number of executive orders issued per year used to be higher and now it’s minimal. For example, president Franklin D. Roosevelt issued the most during his terms and president Barack Obama has issued the least.
