Pledge to keep America safe
As a Member of the United States Congress and the duly elected
representative of the State of South Carolina, I hereby pledge to fight to
keep my state free from enemy combatants relocated from the detention
facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The constituents of my state deserve to
know that their community is being kept safe from the terrorists that seek
to harm American citizens and the freedoms we enjoy.
I understand and appreciate the threat of these detainees and I will not
allow for them to be housed in any detention facility, either now existing
or created in the future, in my state. The constituents of my state deserve
to choose their neighbors and not have these enemy combatants thrust into
their community as their new neighbors.
Henry E. Brown, Jr.
