Transfers to the United States were banned by Congress in 2011, preventing Obama from fulfilling his promise to close the infamous military detention facility in Cuba, which still holds 113 terror suspects nearly 14 years after it was opened. Lawmakers presented their restrictions as part of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2016, which Congress is expected to pass in the coming weeks.
