Illinois Deserves Better Than This


President Obama’s decision to relocate Guantanamo Bay’s inmates to my
home state of Illinois is a misguided decision that will ultimately be
regretted. Proponents of the decision have failed to prove how this move will make America safer. Let’s be clear: the Administration is not
closing Guantanamo, they are simply moving Guantanamo to Illinois.

The multi-million dollar Guantanamo facility will be left dormant while
U.S. courts extend an invitation to expand their reach into national
security affairs. The move from a military tribunal to U.S. civilian
courts will treat individuals who committed an act of war against the
United States as common criminals. It flies in the face of logic, long
precedence, and assumes the military is not capable of fairly
administering justice.

Illinois deserves a better Christmas present than hardened terrorists.

Peter Roskam is a congressman from the 6th district of Illinois.
