Bringing GITMO Detainees to The U.S. is Banned Under Federal Law

From Town Hall:
Earlier today, President Obama announced he is sending a plan to Congress to close Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. His plan includes not only shutting down the prison, where the worst of the world's terrorists are housed, but transfers many of the remaining detainees to the United States. 
“For many years it’s been clear that the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay does not advance our national security—it undermines it,” President Obama said. “This is not just my opinion, this is the opinion of experts, and those in our military.” 
There's just one major problem: bringing GITMO detainees to the United States is banned under federal law. In fact, just two months ago Democrats and Republicans in Congress bolstered the law. 
"After seven years, President Obama has yet to convince the American people that moving Guantanamo terrorists to our homeland is smart or safe. And he doesn’t seem interested in continuing to try. His proposal fails to provide critical details required by law, including the exact cost and location of an alternate detention facility. Congress has left no room for confusion," House Speaker Paul Ryan released in a statement. 
"It is against the law—and it will stay against the law—to transfer terrorist detainees to American soil. We will not jeopardize our national security over a campaign promise.”

Did you read that five out of the six Guantanamo prisoners that the former Uruguayan president (who opposed GITMO) accepted and dumped on his people, married Uruguayan women who they then proceeded to mistreat physically and emotionally. Shortly after the ladies filed for divorce. I know at least one had converted to Islam, and I believe one or more were pregnant or already had children with them.

To say the least, they fully deserve what they got. Stupidity has to come at a cost, and ... there is Karma ...

Absolutely correct Christian Soldier!
I will further add, does anyone expect the current 'opposition' in power to resist this lawlessness?
