Vice President Biden Expects Administration to Break the Law
Where Does Liberal Jay Sidie Stand?
Overland Park, KS - According to Reuters this morning, Vice President Joe Biden said he expects the Obama Administration to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba before leaving office. Under current federal law, closing the facility and transferring terrorists to American soil is illegal. The Administration's own Attorney General Loretta Lynch has publicly agreed as such. Regardless, the Administration has continued to move ahead with its plans to close the facility and in February outlined Fort Leavenworth as one of 13 potential sites for housing the terrorists. Yoder for Congress issued the following statements in response to the report:
"Republicans and Democrats, regardless of political party or their position on this issue, should reject this kind of disregard for the faithful execution of our laws by the executive branch. Congress and the American people have spoken - closing the facility and bringing these terrorists to Kansas is a non-starter. I will continue to fight this misguided and dangerous effort and instead promote policies that keep the American people safe," said Congressman Kevin Yoder.
"Does Liberal Jay Sidie agree with the Vice President, that the Administration should break federal law, oppose a bipartisan majority of Congress and the American people, and close Guantanamo Bay," asked Cate Duerst, Yoder for Congress Campaign Manager. "Does he want to transfer the world's most dangerous terrorists to Fort Leavenworth over the objections of Kansans? The Third District needs answers on where Mr. Sidie stands on the safety and security of the American people and especially our communities in Kansas."
