U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statement regarding the Obama administration’s plan to close Guantanamo Bay:

“President Obama’s continued push to close Guantanamo Bay violates current law and is completely irresponsible given our ever-increasing global threats. His plan violates the will of Congress and of the American people. Closing Guantanamo Bay and transferring dangerous terrorists to communities in the United States endangers the lives of hardworking American families. House Conservatives will continue to promote measures securing the future of Guantanamo Bay and working to ensure Americans are protected at home and abroad. Our nation’s security should be the president’s number one priority not his faulty campaign promises.”  

Congressman Bill Flores represents the 17th District of Texas and is an entrepreneur, former energy executive, Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC)  and member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
