AG: Guantanamo detainees won't go to Illinois
WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says the Obama administration continues to maintain the position it will never seek to transfer detainees in Guantanamo Bay to Thomson Correctional Center in Illinois.
Durbin says Attorney General Eric Holder confirmed under oath the Obama administration's position that it won't move detainees, many being held on terrorism charges, to Illinois.
Durbin is working with Illinois and U.S. officials to come up with funds for the federal purchase of Thomson for use as a maximum-security federal facility.
