US REP. FRANK GUINTA STATEMENT ON OBAMA'S PLAN TO CLOSE GUANTANAMO

WASHINGTON, D.C. – At a White House press conference today, President Barack Obama announced his intention to transfer Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainees to locations inside the United States.Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement:

 

“The President is taking advantage of his lame duck status to usurp Congressional authority and the will of the people. Bipartisan representatives have consistently denied him the right to transfer terrorist detainees from Guantanamo Bay to American soil. The Administration's plan to try the world's most dangerous terrorists in downtown Manhattan also failed. Congress must unite to prevent another reckless foreign policy decision from this Administration, which refuses to clearly recognize threats to the United States. Today, the President even refused to answer questions from the press.”
