GITMO Detainees Coming to Minnesota?
Posted by: Michele Bachmann at 10:21 AM
Last week, I was surprised to hear Congressman Tim Walz (MN-1) come out in favor of holding Guantanamo Bay terrorist-detainees at facilities in Minnesota.
Congressman Walz agrees with President Obama that Guantanamo Bay should be closed and he’s willing to house the detainees right here on Minnesota soil. The President has been unable to get other nations of the world to take them, but apparently Minnesota’s First District will step up to the plate.
Congressman John Kline (MN-2) and I introduced legislation that would keep any detainees from coming to Minnesota – anywhere in Minnesota. I am also a co-sponsor of H.R. 1012, which would prohibit the use of federal funds to transfer these terrorists to anywhere in the U.S.
This is just more fear mongering and demogoguery from Michele Bachmann.
