If we were to “keep score” of which laws harmful to our advocacy were passed under the auspices of which party, my guess is it would come out fairly even. It is disingenuous, however, to lay the responsibility of IML on Obama. Chris Smith, a Republican from New Jersey, was the driving force behind the bill. When it was passed, the Republican Party, not the party of President Obama, was in control of Congress. If Obama had vetoed the bill, that would have delayed its passage by about two months because it would have been overridden by Congress. There was no way this would not have become law. And as far as freedom to travel, while American citizens not in prison or on community supervision should have and do have the right to travel within our borders, I am unaware of the citizens of any country having an inalienable right to travel into another country. Almost all countries welcome visitors as tourists, but they are not required to do so.
