Cruz is against the closing of Guantanamo and wants to expand it.
“You know, just today President Obama announced his plans to try to shut down Guantanamo terrorist detention facilities. Let me say this Mr. President: don’t shut down Gitmo, expand it and let’s have some new terrorists there. How on earth does any president look in the eyes of a mother or father who’s son or daughter lost their lives capturing these terrorists and justify “we’re going to release them again” when we know a very high percentage of them are going to return to waging jihad and try to murder innocent Americans? And the next president is going to have to look in the eyes of a father or mother that we have to send your son to go capture these terrorists again or kill them because President Obama released them to pose a threat to this country.”
