The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 1
Section 7 - Paragraph 3

Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the president of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by him, or, being disapproved by him, shall be re-passed by two-thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case of a bill

All Orders, Resolutions or Votes that require the concurrence of both houses must be presented to the President for final approval before they are effective. The same procedure must be followed as is outlined for Bills.

Note please, that the Paragraph refers to "Rules and Limitations".

The entire Constitution is a Law that is designed to limit the actions and activities of the Officers of the Federal Government.

Also take careful note of the fact that there are no provisions for the President to simply write a law on his own. Executive Orders are unconstitutional and are therefore null and void, ab initio - from the beginning.
