Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D), who this week became the first Muslim Palestinian-American woman to serve in Congress, has made an alteration to the map in her Washington, D.C., congressional office — and it involves Israel.

What are the details?

After Tlaib was sworn into Congress on Thursday, a BuzzFeed reporter touring Tlaib's new office noticed a "slight alteration" to Tlaib's map. A picture revealed that someone — it's not clear who — placed a sticky note near Israel. That same note included the word "Palestine" and an arrow pointing to the region.

Despite officially being a member of Congress for just two days, Tlaib has already stirred lots of controversy.

Perhaps most shocking was her claim — which she made on the very same day she officially became a sitting member of Congress — that "we're gonna impeach the motherf***er!" She was referring to President Donald Trump. Video of Tlaib's remarks went viral, triggering a wave of backlash.

Tlaib was also criticized on Thursday for inviting Linda Sarsour to her swearing in ceremony. Sarsour is widely believed to be vehemently anti-Semitic, and has recently found herself at the center of controversy involving anti-Semitism in the Women's March movement.

Meanwhile, Tlaib used a Qur'an belonging to former President Thomas Jefferson for her swearing in.
