New Hampshire U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte wants to make it more difficult for the administration to transfer detainees from Guantanamo Bay.

She’s part of a group of Republican Senators set to unveil legislation later today to restrict those transfers.

Ayotte was critical of the administration’s decision earlier this month to transfer five Guantanamo detainees to Kazakhstan.
