“Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed an executive order on Thursday that would require travelers from some coronavirus hotspots to self-quarantine… Other states have imposed similar orders,” Vox reports.
“These orders implicate one of the fundamental premises of the union among the 50 states: the right of American citizens to travel among them freely.”
“If states can decide that some US citizens are not welcome within their borders, it may cease to be a union at all. This right to travel is implicit in the notion that citizens are Americans, and not simply Texans or New Yorkers.”Save to Favorites
