One Response to Cuba Travel Suit

    I feel bad for those families, but that suit is going to fail miserably. Agree with it or not, the governent’s stated purpose for placing travel restrictions to Cuba is for national security. Even if the families do have a fundamental right to travel to Cuba to see their families, the government will argue that the security of the nation is a paramount goverment purpose and that the restrictions are narrowly tailored to that purpose. Court’s are not going to explore the nature and scope of those restrictions too deeply because it raises a nonjusticiable political question.
