Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the Administration’s “plan” to close Guantanamo Bay:

“Congress has made its position clear time and again: it is dangerous and irresponsible to close Guantanamo Bay. We have passed and President Obama has signed legislation barring him from moving detainees to the United States. President Obama has stated that he still wants to close the facility, and law required him to submit a plan so he can show the American people exactly what he would do. This latest proposal from the Administration is not complete and it would sacrifice U.S. national security for the sake of a misguided campaign pledge.”
