Gitmo Prisoners? Hardin, Montana to the Rescue!
Yes, apparently the poorest region in the state of Montana is offerring to house all Gitmo prisoners. The town of Hardin, a small town of roughly 3500 people is being hit the hardest by the recession and feels that taking in the prisoners would help create jobs. They have a prison that is completely empty and meets maximum security standards. Reactions are mixed, some people on the Hill aren't convinced the small town understands the full extent of what it's asking to take on. Some citizens of Hardin are a bit uncomfortable that some of the worst terrorist in the world will be five blocks from the center of town and eleven blocks from school. Regardless, if Washington answers the towns offer, it has yet to be heard.
