If a U.S. prison is good enough for “El Chapo”, it should be good enough for Guantanamo Bay detainees.

That's the argument deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes made Friday as he spoke about the Obama administration's effort to close the prison.

Congress has rejected the Obama administration's pleas to transfer the prisoners to a facility in the U.S. Opponents say they have security concerns.

Speaking to reporters at a lunch hosted by Bloomberg, Rhodes says he doesn't hear similar safety concerns being expressed about plans to extradite Mexican drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán to the U.S., despite the fact that Guzmán has escaped from Mexican prisons.
