"The freedom to travel shall not be infringed..."


...That's what the US Constitution says so how come  a man who travelled to Cuba 14 years ago has been hit with a $6,500 fine?
According to this report from USA Today, Zachary Sanders, who violated the United States' ban against travelling to Cuba (without the required U.S. Treasury license), had been fighting his fine since 2009. On Tuesday, Sanders agreed to pay the fine in a settlement.
Sanders had also been denied admission to the New Jersey bar because he had admitted visiting Cuba illegally, reports Reuters.
The sooner Cuba gets around as it has promised to removing its restrictions on its own citizens travelling abroad the better - then Cubans will have greater rights than Americans.
