Where exactly do you get this from?Wow, you’re really way off. Obama’s record in Supreme Court cases for exceeding his constitutional authority is what it is, and it’s no good.
Regarding DACA, just b/c something is deemed good, doesn’t make it constitutional, and if this were challenged in court, Obama would lose. It was politically expedient to let it alone.
Trump didn’t use an Executive Order to fund the portion of the wall you’re talking about. The Defense Dept repurposed it from its existing budget.
BTW, the number of EOs has absolutely nothing to do with whether a president is exceeding his constitutional authority. The only thing that matters is whether a president is exercising authority in the EO that exceeds his constitutionally defined authority in any individual EO, or termed otherwise, breaking the law. A president could write a 1000 EOs. If none break the law, it is okay.
You say so....but you're wrong.
He declared a national emergency....."repurposing" $8 billion dollars. Both the house and the senate voted on a resolution to reject the order.....which Trump has vetoed TWICE now. Major overstep.
