Steve Hawkins Pushes for Guantanamo Trials

Former Skadden Fellow Steve Hawkins (’89) appeared on MSNBC’s “Now With Alex Wagner” to discuss the closing of Guantanamo (Jan. 3). When asked what the remaining barriers are to closing the prison, Steve said, “The president should move to transfer out those 76 people who have already been cleared for release,” Steve said. “For the remainders, the president is going to have to press Congress to allow for fair trials on American soil.” Steve is executive director of Amnesty International USA.
