House Votes to Block Guantanamo Transfers

  • Sep 15, 2016

Closing Guantanamo is an unacceptable risk while we're still fighting overseas. Today I voted to stop the transfer of detainees from Guantanamo.

Latest reports show that over 30% of the 693 detainees released from the prison have returned to the fight or are suspected of doing so. That's over 200 extremists now threatening American military personnel and our allies.

President Obama should not be allowed to continue to put American soldiers at risk with his weak national security policies.
