Marjorie Taylor Greene: Guam is a foreign land, not U.S. territory.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's statement that Guam is a foreign country is incorrect.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's statement that Guam is a foreign country is incorrect. On February 27, 2020, while speaking to a Conservative Political Action Conference, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene incorrectly claimed that Guam is a foreign country. Reacting to her statement, Krystal Paco-San Agustin, the communicator's director for Gov. Lourdes Leon Guerrero (D), said he would offer her a Guam's history book.

In 1898, Guam became a U.S. territory and was placed under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Navy. People born on the island in the Western Pacific Ocean have been considered U.S. citizens since 1950. Guamanians were conferred U.S. citizenship through the Guam Organic Act of 1950. In 1970, Guam's first elections were held.
