House lawmakers on Thursday voted to temporarily bar the transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees from the United States and foreign countries, in defiance of a veto threat from the Obama administration.


The House voted 244-174 to approve the Guantanamo Detainee Transfer Prohibition Act, which would prohibit the use of federal funds to transfer detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba, to foreign countries or the United States until the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for next fiscal year is signed into law or until the next president takes office.


The bill’s passage is poised to heighten tensions between lawmakers who oppose President Obama’s efforts to shutter the detention facility and the current administration.Scissors-32x32.png
