GOOD – and why should they be? If a traveller has a passport and is not on probation or parole they should have the right to travel, explore, and enjoy the world as much as anyone else!

Freedom of movement is a HUMAN RIGHT of travel – Period.

What I’m getting from this article is “sex” is now considered on a level with terrorists; at least here in Amerika. I think it safe to assume that this country with it’s imperialistic mentality is the instigator of information exchanges on travelling registrants. I don’t know if the laws in other countries are as draconian and self defeating and destructive as here, but I seriously doubt denying people entry and harassing them will do anything to keep people from thinking about or having sex. This kind of profiling will not “save one child” because the people they target (travelers) are the least likely to commit an offense. I suppose DHS has to justify their existence some way, as I think the blowing up planes with a bottle of water or cream rinse has probably worn thin, and besides, now they have a new target to harass.

I completely agree with Tired of Hiding.

According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) all people are entitled to the recognition of inherent dignity and certain inalienable rights, which are the “foundations of freedom and justice in the world.” Freedom of movement is part of the “liberty of man” thus making it one of the most basic human rights. Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights stipulates:

Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State. Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and return to his country.

The right to free movement, or the denial of it, within national and international borders can have profound effects upon other basic human rights also outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other treaties. Without the right to leave ones home, an individual may be politically repressed, prevented from observing his/her chosen religion, prevented from enjoying the basic right to marriage or family life, or blocked from a job or an education that ultimately could enhance his/her quality of life. Thus, while free movement may seem on the surface to be a fairly minor and obvious human right, it actually is one of the most basic rights that in many nations around the world, when violated, causes numerous problems and cases of suffering.
