Marjorie Taylor Greene urges states to 'Consider seceding from the Union'

Trending Now

Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has once again stirred controversy by suggesting that states should "consider seceding from the union" if the Biden administration continues its current border policies.

Greene took to social media to express her frustration with what she perceives as "traitorous America last border policies." This isn't the first time Greene has made such a call; she previously advocated for a "national divorce" between red and blue states.

Greene's comments come at a time when the nation is already deeply divided. She argues that a "national divorce" is needed to resolve disputes between Republican and Democratic states. But is secession a viable or responsible solution?

The idea of secession is not new in American history. The most notable attempt was by the 11 southern Confederate states, which led to the Civil War. Given this historical context, is Greene's suggestion a dangerous precedent?

Greene's comments have not gone unnoticed by her colleagues. Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) criticized her, stating, "Seceding didn't go so well for y'all last time." He urged her to work for the "UNITED States of America" or "secede YOURSELF from Congress."

No official response has been issued by the House of Representatives at this time.
