Report argues that the legal and regulatory restrictions placed on the issuance of identity documents have restricted U.S. citizens from traveling within the U.S., from leaving the U.S., and/or from returning to the U.S. The report cites complaints and cases of violations of the rights to freedom of movement and association. It also addresses the wider question of protecting national security at the expense of individual rights.
