Not personally.

The citizen can file a lawsuit in a Federal court challenging the President's current directives to the Immigration services, on the grounds those directives violate a law passed by Congress. It will be ruled on by the Federal judge(s), and they will be the one forcing the President to change his directions, should the judge(s) find the citizen's complains are legally sound.
