Registrant Travel Action Group (RTAG) envisions a future in which individuals who are required to register on any US jurisdiction’s sex offender registry and have served their required time of incarceration and/or supervision, are allowed travel internationally, safely and with the same freedom of movement as every American citizen and resident.
- Be a resource for information on current US and state government policies and laws affecting registrants who wish to travel internationally;
- Organize efforts to terminate US government international travel notifications of registrants attempting to travel internationally and who have completed their court-imposed sentence;
- Work to reverse immigration policy that discriminates against registrants who wish to marry foreign nationals;
- Reverse aspects of the the Adam Walsh Act (AWA) that prevents a family member from immigrating if that US citizen or permanent resident petitioner has been convicted of a specified sexual offense against any minor child;
- Seek out and support programs which effectively prevent sex tourism.
- 98% of acts of sex tourism and child exploitation is committed by non registrants;
- The U.S. Supreme Court in Crandall v. Nevada, 73 U.S. 35 (1868) declared that freedom of movement is a fundamental right
- Justice Willaim O. Douglas in held that the federal government may not restrict the right to travel without due process
- Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, of which the United States is a signatory, states that everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State and everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country
- Article 12 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights incorporates states everyone lawfully within the territory of a State shall …have the right to liberty of movement and freedom to choose his residence. Furthermore, everyone shall be free to leave any country… and movement shall not be subject to any restrictions except those provided by law
- The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) process under AWA of denying registrants the right to marry a foreign national violates constitutional due process.
