Obama says US prisons tough enough for detainees
By STEVEN R. HURST
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama forcefully defended his plans to close the Guantanamo detention camp Thursday and said some of the terror suspects held there would be brought to top-security prisons in the United States despite fierce opposition in Congress. He spoke one day after the Senate voted resoundingly to deny him money to close the prison, and he decried "fear-mongering" that he said had led to such opposition.
He insisted the transfer would not endanger Americans and promised to work with lawmakers to develop a system for holding detainees who can't be tried and can't be turned loose from the Navy-run prison in Cuba.
Hehe, not try and be a pseudo journalist or anything. I just curious so I asked.

I just wanted to know if Illinois had the ability to house gitmo
detainees? And if there would be some sort of why for the state to
benefit from it financially.
I say we can handle them along with any federal funds that come with them.
