WASHINGTON, DC – During consideration of the annual defense authorization bill, the Senate tonight approved an amendment introduced by U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) that would prevent terrorist detainees from being transferred from the Guantanamo Bay detention facility to American soil. The measure was approved by a vote of 54 to 41.
“The top-rate facility at Guantanamo allows for the secure and humane detention of foreign terrorist detainees. With a specially-designed courtroom, it is singularly equipped to safeguard intelligence that is critical to protecting our country,” said Senator Ayotte. “The administration may want to close Guantanamo, but the American people do not want foreign terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed brought to the United States.”
