Gitmo is and has been a US national defense asset for a very long time . Its a place where US Navy sailors and other US military and American civilians such as divers in distress and civilian boaters in the Caribbean area have been sent to when casualties occurred in peacetime maneuvers of warship or accidents military or civilian away from home when getting fast medical care is vital.
Its also where foreign nationals militants who did or do commit war crimes against US troops are held outside the US so military authorities can try them and keep them in confinement
Finally Gitmo is a US toehold on the still communist island of Cuba and strategic US base that the US needs to protect the Panama Canal and the approaches to the USA from the Caribbean sea areas and to provide a staging and logistics base for any type of military response needed in the upper south American zone
COME ON MAN ! Gitmo nor its prison should never be closed JOE !
NOW HERES THE DEAL MAN : Does The Democrats HR-1 house bill that is a fake see thru attempt to allow anyone to illegally vote no matter who they are or how many times with no photo ID requirement anywhere , have a provision to let these foreign national war criminals vote too like all the convicted felons in the USA no matter what state laws may be, a violation that is unconstitutional as a matter infriging upon states rights
