Rohrabacher Reacts To Supreme Court Ruling on Gitmo Detainees

Jun 12, 2008

Washington, Jun 12, 2008 -

Congressman Rohrabacher has issued the following statement on today’s 5-4 Supreme Court ruling giving foreign terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay rights to challenge their detention in U.S. civilian courts:

“The Supreme Court has spoken and Constitutional rights have been defined. Our government should move forward based on that decision. I would hope this ruling does not in some way prevent action from being taken by our government that would save the lives of thousands of innocent Americans in a terrorist attack.

“Nevertheless our government has to do its best within the rules of the Constitution and the Court has spoken to that effect.”
