US welcomes Cuban decision and mentions Universal Declaration of Human Rights. What about stateless persons?
I am very surprised on the remark given by the spokeswoman of the US States Department in regards to Cuba lifting restrictions of Cubans traveling abroad. Her what she has to say: “This is consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which
provides that everybody ought to have the right to leave any country,” US state department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.
Really? So, how comes that the right of stateless individuals in the United States is not consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? How comes we welcome the decision of Cuba to allow people travel freely to any country they want to but we deny those rights to stateless persons and forbid them from leaving the continent of the US and return back to their home of residency in the US? Can State Department answer to this question and make it clear? Can we say finally that the rights of stateless people in the US is in violation?
