Speaking on The Charlie Kirk Show this week, Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene gave some suggestions on how he think red states should treat transplants coming from blue states who are “fleeing leftist policies,” saying that red states should be able to “choose how people are to vote in their states.”
“For example, over the past couple of years we’ve seen a mass exodus from California and New York, where we’ve seen people fleeing those leftist policies and moving to states like Georgia, Florida, Texas — states where they like the tax policies, they like the schools , they like the consequences of Republican and red policies,” Greene said.
Greene went on to say that one thing red states could propose is “if Democrats voters choose to flee these blue states where they cannot tolerate the living conditions, they don’t want their children taught these horrible things and they really changed their mind of the types of policies they support, well, once they move to a red state guess what — maybe you don’t get to vote for five years.”
“You can live there, you can work there, but you don’t get to bring your values that you basically created in the blue states you came from by voting for Democrat leaders and Democrat policies,” she continued.
Greene’s comments come after she made a post to Twitter this President’s Day calling for red states in the U.S. to “separate” from blue states.
“We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government,” Greene wrote. “Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”
