Question
How does any social issue become a new policy?

Answer
Ben,

Painting with a broad brush here, but generally a social issue becomes a new policy through judicial activism where courts try to craft law through their own feelings and biases, regardless of the rule of law, from the bench.  The President can do it by creating agencies (administrative law), and by executive order.  The slower, but much more Constitutionally correct manner, is through referendum and through the popular vote.
