“The Trump era has stranded these five men at Guantanamo” The Washington Post

The Washington Post reports that five men detained at Guantanamo Bay were certified as eligible for resettlement during the last days of the Obama administration. However, they were not resettled and their future under the new administration is unclear. Thomas A. Durkin, the lawyer for one of the men, Abdul Latif Nasir, says that Nasir’s “whole life hangs in the balance due to a mere technicality that the courts and more importantly the Obama Justice Department didn’t have the courage to act on.” He called the fact that Nasir and others would remain at Guantánamo despite having been deemed eligible for resettlement “disgraceful.”
