Can the President of the United States override the First Amendment?


Here is the first amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Notice it says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establish of religion" It doesn't say the President shall make no law. My question is: Is Trump violating the first amendment by his blocking of refugees, by picking and choosing Christians to come into this country, but not Muslims?

    Executive orders carry the same weight as a law. However executive orders are issued only to executive branches to carry out policies issued by the president. If they are not carried out, they are in violation of the law.

    I agree, and it seems like pres Obama and his dems wanted to give equal or greater rights than those of American Citizens to illegal aliens & immigrants from terrorist infested countries.

    Trump wants American Citizens to get the most consideratio
