Posted on December 15, 2009

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today issued the following statement on the administration’s proposal to move detainees from Guantanamo Bay to the United States:

“Congress made it very clear to the administration that bringing dangerous terrorists onto American soil is not only the wrong thing to do, but goes against the wishes of the American people. I have yet to hear one good reason why moving these terrorists from off our shores right into the heart of our country makes us safer.”
