Speaker Ryan: We are taking all legal preparations necessary

"The Law Is Really Clear, Mr. President 

We are taking all legal preparations necessary. If President Obama proceeds with knowingly breaking the law and asking the military to break the law by bringing Guantanamo Bay detainees to American soil, he will be met with fierce bipartisan opposition in Congress."

Posted by Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday, February 25, 2016

We are taking all legal preparations necessary in the event President Obama tries to relocate Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainees to American soil. 

Here's why: As top administration officials admit, bringing these terrorists to our backyard is against the law—and it will stay against the law. These prisoners are the worst of the worst, and nearly one out of every three of those freed return to terrorist activities.

The American people have already spoken on this issue. In fact, a new poll shows a majority of citizens oppose closing Guantanamo. House Republicans agree.

This is yet another attempt from a lame-duck president to distract from the litany of problems his successor will inherit.

Our first responsibility is to keep Americans safe—and that’s exactly what we plan to do.

Sincerely,
