American government has divided or separated their government into three branches which are legislative, executive and judicial. These branches are specified to maintain laws and regulations in the country and on the basis of that they are assigned with basic powers.
The legislative branch is associated with constructing rules and regulations by declaring certain acts are crimes. Speaking about executive branch, then it recognizes people who have violated certain rules and judicial branch is responsible to punish each and every criminal. (Trethan, 2012)
Executive branch include president, vice president and other cabinet level people. Obviously, the main power is associated with president; then after president it is vice president who has authority to deal with crimes related to country’s defense, interior, education and transport.
