“People in Illinois have not had their chance to be heard – whether they are for or against the Thomson Prison plan. Instead, what is happening here is the ‘Chicago Way.’ The “public hearings” in Sterling, Illinois were just a formality because the plan was decided upon by the Obama Administration and Governor Quinn. In their rush to close Guantanamo and give terrorist detainees the same rights as American citizens, they have not stopped to consider the consequences: Why should we give terrorists the same rights as American citizens? Under U.S. law, could we be forced to let terrorists go free? Could we be making Chicago and Illinois a bigger terrorist target than it already is?”
“President Obama wants this prison in Thomson and Governor Quinn and every political hack will do everything possible to make it happen. Yet there is no economic benefit to this Cash for Al-Qaeda plan. The federal government will not even be paying half of what it cost the taxpayers of Illinois to build Thomson Correctional Center. That is why we need public opinion more than ever before to help us fight this.”
“After canvassing potential plaintiffs in Thomson, Illinois over the last few weeks, we know that the residents and Thomson employees are against this plan. However, even the prison guards at Thomson who are afraid of losing their jobs, have been ordered not to speak with anyone. The message I am telling you is this: This is the time to stand up and fight this. You may not get another opportunity. If we stand up together and make our voices heard, we have the chance to stop this plan from happening. We fought a war in Iraq and Afghanistan to make sure that terrorists never set foot on American soil – let’s not start now. Please join us and become a plaintiff in this lawsuit to stop the closure of Thomson Prison and its transfer to the federal government.”
