Ask Your Members of Congress: Allow Transfers Out of Guantanamo
Each year, Congress passes a piece of legislation called the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). As Congress begins its work on the FY 2020 NDAA, some in Congress are working to pass provisions that would allow Guantanamo detainees to agree to plea deals by video-conference or to be transferred to the U.S. for trial. Others are working to allow detainees to be temporarily transferred to the U.S. for medical treatment and to otherwise improve medical care at Guantanamo. Still others are working to get rid of restrictions on transferring Guantanamo detainees entirely.
Please write to your Members of Congress now to tell them that you want them to do the right thing and to lift the restrictions on transferring detainees out of Guantanamo - and at a minimum to allow detainees to be transferred for trial or medical treatment.
