The use of executive actions in this manner is in no way an overstep of the bounds of the executive office. Executive orders are for exactly this: making snap policy decisions faster than Congress can, but which can later be reviewed, revised, or negated by Congress if they ever feel like addressing the matter, whatever it might be. We are now at the second part of that process; if the Congress feels the need to affirm, revise, or negate the order, they need only call the matter to a vote. See? The system works sometimes.
