"Gitmo North' Proposal Rejected by Americans


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Tuesday regarding a proposal to move terrorist detainees from Guantanamo to the United States:

"The American people and a bipartisan majority of the Congress have already rejected bringing terrorists to U.S. soil for long-term detention, and current law prohibits it. The administration has failed to explain how transferring terrorists to Gitmo North will make Americans safer than keeping these terrorists off of our shores at the secure facility in Cuba."
