LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is criticizing President Barack Obama’s effort to close the detention facility in Guantanamo Bay.

Rubio says voters have the right to be frustrated and points to Obama’s move as one reason why. “This makes no sense to me,” he told a morning rally in Las Vegas Tuesday, with hours to go before the Nevada caucuses get under way.

Rubio says Obama may return the land to Cuba. “We’re not giving back an important naval base to an anti-American communist dictatorship,” Rubio says.

He adds that the Guantanamo prisoners don’t belong on U.S. soil. “These are literally enemy combatants.” Rubio promises that he will ship terrorists to Guantanamo when he’s president.

Rubio will be in West Michigan Tuesday night at Lacks Enterprises in Kentwood.  Doors open at 6:30pm and the event starts at 7:30pm.  FOX 17 will have live reports and will carry the rally live on FOX17Online.com.
