14th District Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has been assigned to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee and the Homeland Security Committee.

The House voted in February 2021 to remove Greene from her committee assignments for statements she had made in the past that some considered violent and incendiary.

On Wednesday Greene said:

“We will return the role of the Oversight Committee to investigating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement of the federal government, which is exactly what the American people are fed up with.”

On her role with the Homeland Security Committee Greene said it’s time for accountability.

“Our Southern border is being invaded by millions of illegal aliens, criminals, and potential terrorists,” she said. “Our People are being murdered by Chinese fentanyl flooding in from the cartels. Our Border Patrol and ICE agents have their hands tied and have been turned into a welcoming committee by the Biden administration. Cyber attacks continue on our nation’s people and businesses along with many more threats to our homeland.”
