Tell Your Representatives: Guantanamo Must Be Closed!

Congress is embroiled in a heated debate on whether to bar Guantánamo detainees from being brought to the United States for any reason.

What about justice?!  Human Rights First has shown in indisputable terms that our courts can handle terrorism cases. Our prisons already hold terrorists and hardened criminals without greater danger to our safety.

We were recently in Washington with our coalition of retired military leaders to convince Attorney General Eric Holder, the Defense Department, the White House, the Hill, the media, and the public that closing Guantanamo is in our national interest. But we need your support– Congress will not move unless we tip the polls in our favor.

Write your representatives today to let them know that you support the closure of Guantanamo. Spread the word to your friends and family. We cannot let them derail our efforts to bring justice back to the United States!
