The Freedom to Cross a Border
By Wendy McElroy
This article appeared in the Winter 2012 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Due to tighter travel restrictions and increased processing fees, crossing the Canadian-U.S. border legally has become more difficult for those convicted of driving under the influence, arrested for attending a peace rally, or in possession of a medical-marijuana card. International travel is just one realm in which the growth of government harassment and onerous red tape has increased the transaction costs of everyday living.
