Washington and its successors to the presidency have issued thousands of executive orders. The U.S. State Department began numbering in 1907 and worked on files dating back to 1862.

Under our system of government, the authority of the president to issue such injunctions (or participate in some other form of unilateral executive action) must come from the Constitution or federal law. In other words, an executive can be used to enforce a power that the commander-in-chief already has. It cannot be used to give new powers to the presidency.
