Specifically settle them in Worcester or on Martha’s Vineyard, which are respectively in Massachusetts’ 3rd Congressional District represented by Jim McGovern and 10th Congressional District represented by Bill Delahunt.  I prefer Martha’s Vineyard, perhaps the Kennedy compound could be seized via eminent domain to be used for this important public purpose.

Since these two Congressmen have publicly DEMANDED that the United States resettle 17 Uighur detainees currently held in Gitmo, doing so should be done on THEIR home turf.  Lawmakers demand Guantanamo Uighurs move to US.

“The Uighur people are not enemies of America. In fact, I know you admire our fundamental ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” – Delahunt.

I guess the fact that they were apprehended fighting our troops in Tora Bora is irrelevant.

A shout-out to Congressman Chris Smith from New Jersey’s 4th congressional district, who also felt it necessary to lend moral support to the Uighurs, although not going quite so far as to demand they be resettled in the U.S. Perhaps he forgets that the 2001 Anthrax letters were traced back to Hamilton Township in his district.
