Members of the Guam National Guard dropped by the office of Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene this Monday in response to her comments where she falsely suggested that the U.S. territory is a foreign country.
Guam Del. Michael F.Q. San Nicolas led a group of Guam National Guard members to Greene’s office and spoke with one of Greene’s aides, who informed them that she was away from the office.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference last month, Greene caught some backlash after she said in a speech that Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars shouldn’t go to Guam.
“I’m a regular person. And I wanted to take my regular-person, normal, everyday American values, which is, we love our country. We believe our hard-earned tax dollars should just go for America, not for what? China, Russia, the Middle East, Guam, whatever, wherever,” she said.
Guam has been a U.S. territory since 1899, and its residents have been American citizens since 1950.
