WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 23:  President Barack Obama makes a statement about his plan to close the detention camp at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base and relocate the terrorism suspects there to the United States with Vice President Joe Biden (L) in the Roosevelt Room at the White House February 23, 2016 in Washington, DC. Attempting to follow through with a campaign pledge he made in 2008, Obama will continue to face an uphill battle to close the prison in Cuba because of strong opposition to the plan by congressional Republicans.
