Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene sparked outrage and calls for her resignation after she encouraged states to "consider seceding from the union" on the 22nd anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks.
Greene reasoned that states have grounds to secede because Americans are "drowning from Biden’s traitorous America last border policies," suggesting that President Joe Biden's administration has failed to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis at the nation's southern border.
"If the Biden admin refuses to stop the invasion of cartel led human and drug trafficking into our country, states should consider seceding from the union."
"From Texas to New York City to every town in America, we are drowning from Biden’s traitorous America last border policies."

Greene's tone-deaf remarks prompted many to call for resignation.
Earlier this year, Greene came under fire for calling for red states to secede from the United States and suggesting a "national divorce" is in order.
Greene claimed "everyone" she talks to believes the country "need[s] to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government" to escape "sick and disgusting woke culture issues" furthered by Democrats' "traitorous America Last policies."
Greene's call for a "national divorce" is not a new one given that she polled her Twitter followers in October 2021 on the same topic only to be met with considerable pushback even by members of her own party who pointed out that such a proposal is unconstitutional.
Her undemocratic and authoritarian ideas were criticized further after she said red states should impose a 5-year voting moratorium for Democrats who move to them in an effort to kneecap their power as a viable voting bloc.
Greene said those who move from blue states—which Republicans have long alleged are falling apart due to Democratic leadership—should not get to "bring [their] values" to red states, essentially punishing any left-leaning person regardless of the individual policies they may or may not support.
