Texas Congressman Wants To Send Detainees To Live At The Supreme Court
Republican Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert doesn’t like the Boumediene Vs. Bush ruling by the Court that upholds habaes corpus for detainees. So disgusted is he by the majority decision that did a little thing like uphold the Constitution, that he has introduced legislation to send detainnees to the grounds of the Supreme Court so the justices can take care of them. He says he wants the justices “to have a little skin in the game.”
By transporting all of the detainees to the court’s grounds, my bill, H.R. 6615 – “To provide for the transport of the enemy combatants detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to Washington, D.C., where the United States Supreme Court will be able to more effectively micromanage the detainees by holding them on the Supreme Court grounds, and for other purposes” – will give the justices plenty of opportunities to interact with these terrorists and therefore do a better job of supervision.
