Freedom to Travel
On the Motion to Table
Senate Roll Call No. 405
108th Congress, 1st Session

Rejected: 36-59 (see complete tally)
On October 23, 2003, the Senate voted 36 to 59 to reject a motion to table an amendment to the Transportation, Treasury, and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act of 2004 (H.R. 2989) that would prohibit enforcement of a ban on travel to Cuba. A vote in favor of the motion was a vote against free travel. The ACLU supports the freedom of movement because it allows access to information, encourages free exchange of ideas, and is protected by the Constitution. The ACLU opposed the motion to table this amendment and the amendment later passed by a voice vote. (Roll Call Vote No. 405)
