Senate Passed NDAA, Now Obama Must Abide by It

“[President Obama] should listen to the American people and present a plan to Congress, as requested multiple times, instead of continuing his unlawful, go-it-alone approach.”

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) issued the following statement after 91 senators voted to pass the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which prohibits the transfer of enemy combatants from Guantanamo Bay to the United States:

“Today, just as they have for the past several years, senators from both parties voted to prohibit President Obama from bringing enemy combatants held at Guantanamo Bay to American soil. President Obama would be wise to reconsider any attempt to issue an executive order that violates the same law he is poised to sign. He should listen to the American people and present a plan to Congress, as requested multiple times, instead of continuing his unlawful, go-it-alone approach.”
