大統領令

An executive order is not the president creating new law or appropriating new money from the U.S. Treasury — both things that are the domain of Congress; it is the president instructing the government how it is to work within the parameters that are already set by Congress and the Constitution.

Trump's executive order on building a border wall, for example, basically establishes building the wall as a federal priority and directs the Department of Homeland Security to use already-available funding to get the ball rolling on its construction.

The president's executive orders are recorded in the Federal Register and are considered binding, but they are subject to legal review. (More on that next.)


How can a president do this?
In a word: carefully. Executive orders have often been the subject of controversy, with the opposition party accusing the president of overstepping his authority and acting like a dictator. Basically, they're arguing that he's changing the law rather than working within it.


The political downside to executive orders, then, basically boils down to two things: 1) Getting struck down by the courts, and 2) Looking like you can't pass your agenda through Congress and are acting as an all-powerful executive — in a system designed to limit absolute power.

The upside is, of course, that you can try to do this all by yourself, with just the stroke of a pen. (And then hope for the best.)


大統領令ってのは、法律の範囲内、すでに利用できる基金の範囲内でする大統領の命令、なんだけど、実質的立法行為じゃないか、と批判されることもある、と。


トランプ氏がバンバン、発令しているか、というと、

While Trump's first days in office have seemed to be full of executive actions, that's not really all that uncommon. A new president often shows up with many directives for the agencies he takes oversight of.

Back in 2009, for example, Obama signed nine executive orders in his first 10 days and 16 total in January and February.


オバマさんもやっていた、と。
