Permission-Based Government Controls on Air and Surface Travel

Report addresses violations relating to government control over each passenger’s travel over US air space. It details two main problems: namely the legality of this process since the department concerned does not have legal or judicial backing to conduct such controls; and the lack of substantive or procedural standards to govern this process. It mentions cases of US citizens being prevented from travel and visitors being stuck in the US unable to return home, resulting in clear violation of persons’ right to freedom of movement under the ICCPR.
