Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the Obama Administration’s decision to delay closing Guantanamo Bay:

“It would be an affront to the law for the Administration to unilaterally attempt to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay. The President’s own Attorney General made this clear to Congress this week. Today’s official announcement marks this Administration’s simple realization that, despite its record, it cannot govern by fiat.”
