Statement from Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Andy McKenna on the Gitmo Detainees Moving to Illinois

From the Campaign Office of Andy McKenna for Governor
Saturday, November 14, 2009

“It appears that Governor Quinn’s only plan to cut spending and create jobs is free prisoners and bring terrorists to Illinois. I wholeheartedly oppose Governor Quinn and President Obama's efforts to move Gitmo detainees to our neighborhoods. This shows how out of touch Governor Quinn really is."

Andy McKenna and Matt Murphy recognize that the Thomson Correctional Center is underutilized, but this is not the direction we should take to maximize the facilities operations.
