On Monday, Senator Steve Daines went to the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Daines was joined by Senators Jerry Moran (KS) and Cory Gardner (CO). Upon Daines’ return, he took to the Senate floor to underscore the importance of maintaining the detention center and not helping President Obama fulfill a campaign promise to bring detainees to American communities.

“Visiting Guantanamo Bay was a humble reminder of the services our military provides overseas to get these terrorists off the battlefield and ensure we don’t have to bring them to Americans’ backyards,” Daines stated. “The fact remains clear, President Obama signed multiple pieces of legislation into law that explicitly prohibits the transfer of enemy combatants from Guantanamo Bay to our shores. I’m exceedingly proud of our men and women serving at Guantanamo Bay and will continue working tirelessly to prohibit the transfer of these detainees to America.”

Daines is a cosponsor of the Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Protection Act which permanently prohibits the president from modifying, terminating, abandoning or transferring the lease of Naval Station Guantanamo Bay without the approval, by law, of Congress.
