In the United States, executive orders are orders given by the head of the executive branch, which is the President of the United State. Executive orders hold the same authority that laws do, but they do not require the same process to be made official. Typically, executive orders are made specifically to allow members of the executive branch to do their job more effectively. While executive orders do not require a lengthy process to become official, they are still subject to judicial review and can be overturned if the courts deem them to be unsupported by the Constitution or statute.
