President Joe Biden announced another executive order on Tuesday giving "mass amnesty" to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens.

A Biden spokesperson said the new executive order would "protect approximately half a million spouses of U.S. citizens, and approximately 50,000 noncitizen children under the age of 21 whose parent is married to a U.S. citizen" from deportation by allowing illegal alien spouses of U.S. citizens to apply for permanent residence and eventually citizenship without having to leave the country.

Alabama Secretary of State Wes Allen and U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) criticized the Biden administration for having the wrong priorities and playing politics with "mass amnesty."

"Today, Biden issued an Executive Order (EO) to offer mass amnesty to illegal immigrants currently residing in our country. Couple this with his previous voter registration EO and it is clear that Biden is attempting to win the upcoming election, not by winning over legitimate American voters, but by attempting to legitimize illegal immigrants. He won't stop with this EO. He will keep attempting to dilute the power of the vote of legal Americans. Biden and his administration are radical and lawless," Allen said.
