Roskam On Stunning Admission That White House Is Reconsidering Moving Guantanamo To Illinois
Statement from Congressman Peter Roskam after Majority Leader Hoyer's stunning admission that moving Guantanamo to Illinois is a mistake and the White House is re-thinking this flawed strategy:
"I'm pleased to see that both Leader Hoyer and the White House are recognizing that moving Guantanamo is a mistake and are subsequently reconsidering their flawed plan. The opposition to this controversial move has been widespread, broad based and well reasoned. While they have ignored good reason for months now, this presents Democrats in Illinois and around the country a new opportunity to listen to common sense and oppose this controversial move that won't make us any safer."
