Close Gitmo

Sadly, this month marks the 10th anniversary of the U.S. detention of prisoners in Guantanamo, making it the longest-standing war prison in U.S. history. The prisoners, some of which are teenagers, have been held without due process of law and many of them been subject to brutal interrogations. This prison has done considerable damage to our nation’s reputation as a human rights leader, and been used as a recruiting tool for terrorists. The ACLU has launched a nationwide campaign to close Guantanamo. Please read the ACLU’s official statement on ten years of Guantanamo and take a look at the Guantanamo by the Numbers info-graphic. Let's keep American safe and free.
