wehave enough problems with illegal alliens wedont need more to slip through the cracks in the future. another issue would be our unemployment rates in the usa. As an US citizen it is hard enough for US to get jobs . YOu have illegal imigrants snagging them at a lower pay.In the long run it hurts all of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obviously no one wants to have dangerous prisoners nearby if they can escape.

However, given these prisoners high profile and significant numbers, I'm sure that new maximum security prison construction will be required at the Leavenworth facility to accomodate these prisoners so that they can't escape.

Assuming that proper security is in place, the dollars these prisoner's will bring to Kansas from prison construction and their on-going maximum security costs will help our State's economy.

How about giving them trials instead of holding them for years without benefit of the legal system?

Bring 'em on. Gitmo is a moral collapse and an international outrage that just makes more terrorists. These detainees need their day in the American justice system, and if they're guilty they should be locked away. Kansas would benefit economically, and America morally.
