A Michigan prison could be used to house terrorism suspects currently being held at Guantanamo Bay.
A White House security team traveled to standish, michigan today to inspect a maximum security prison about two hours from detroit.
Michigan lawmakers support the move because closing the maximum-security facility would cost the city jobs and money.
Still, most residents are against the plan.
"Well, because they're jihadists and I think there's a difference between a homegrown criminal and a jihadist," said local business owner David Munson.
"I don't believe that terrorists are super human beings," said. Rep. Joel Sheltrown, D.-Mich. "I don't believe they're any more dangerous that the crypts or the bloods or any other gang in California."
Guantanamo Bay now holds 229 suspected terrorists.
A military penitentiary at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., is also being considered to house them.
