ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the controversy concerning the national security aspect of immigration and the appropriate policies associated with it in the U.S. It cites the story of a family who cannot board on a plane home because their name appears on a U.S. terrorism watchlist. It believes that the tension between the citizen's right to travel and the state's interest in successful foreign policies should be reconciled.
