Sorry, but NONE of those things are even remotely constitutional encroachments. One of the main jobs of any chief executive (POTUS or corporate CEO) is to deploy the limited resources in the manner he best sees fit to achieve the objectives of the organization. If the POTUS had unlimited resources, he could do a whole lot more than he can when people want to limit government. There are lots of laws on the books, they can not all be enforced, nor do you really want them to be... Presidents, governors, mayors, sheriffs, police chiefs, presidents of homeowners associations all pick their battles. It is the very nature of their jobs to make these decisions.
