EU split over taking in former Guantánamo inmates

Of those prisoners still detained at Guantánamo, around 60 to 80 are expected to be tried. The remaining 245 would be released, but many cannot be sent back to their own countries for fear of execution or torture. The US has made it clear it will not allow them to settle in America.

If they are not dangerous, why can't they settle here (other than public outcry, of course), and if they are dangerous, why can't they be tried?
