Last month, Republican candidate for Illinois comptroller and long-time conservative activist William J. Kelly filed a lawsuit challenging the sufficiency of the public hearing process on the Thomson Prison plan to transfer the Gitmo detainees to Illinois. Kelly testified at the public hearing but, like many others, realized that the hearing was just a formality. Both the state and the federal government have been tried to ram this plan through without, as usual, thinking about the consequences. Why are we giving terrorists the same rights as American citizens? Could we be forced to let terrorists go free? Could we be making Chicago and Illinois a bigger terrorist target than it already is?
Politicians want to ignore the voice of the people. The people of Illinois and across the country do not want terrorists moved to American soil and treated like American citizens. But we can do something about it.
Kelly's next step is to file a suit to stop Governor Quinn for closing Thomson Prison. In order to do that, Kelly and his team have been canvassing Illinois citizens and guards and employees at Thomson. Kelly says, "We've been fighting a war to keep Al-Qaeda off our soil. Let's keep it that way." Kelly is asking people from across Illinois to join this lawsuit - and is especially calling on residents of Thomson and Sterling to join the lawsuit with him.
