Roskam On Guantanamo Coming To Illinois

Congressman Peter Roskam issued the following statement today after reports indicate that Guantanamo Bay Prison will be moved to Thomson, Illinois:

"The decision to move some of the world's worst terrorists to Illinois is an ill-advised move that ultimately will be regretted. The proponents have failed to prove how this move will make America safer. Let's be clear: the Administration is not closing Guantanamo, they are simply moving Guantanamo to Illinois. Illinois deserves a better Christmas present than hardened terrorists. "
