The Republican senator will meet with reporters in Leavenworth, then tour the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. Brownback has been a vocal opponent to efforts to close Guantanamo and bring the terrorist detainees to Kansas.
Brownback argues that the Leavenworth barracks lacks the appropriate space for the detainees.
Leavenworth community leaders also will answer questions on Thursday.
