Some in the media are claiming that the President of the United States has “Absolute Power.”  This concept is a carry-over of medieval “divine rights of kings.” Back then, kings of the secular state believed they were appointed by God to rule over all of life including the church. When Papal Rome ruled, they adopted the same concept for a while, exercising authority over kings.

The constitution does not give the President absolute power, or unquestioned authority, not even on immigration matters. I think they are confusing “absolute power” with “exclusive authority.”  The President has exclusive authority on immigration policy matters, but policy must conform to the constitution. The constitution comes closest to absolute power. But not totally absolute, because the constitution can be changed by the people. We the people are vested with absolute power under God. I say, under God, because He is the only one with true absolute power, thus the words, one nation under God.
