HV Resident Challenges Travel Ban

Kerhonkson, NY – An Ulster County, New York resident who traveled to Iraq prior to the war is challenging the government's imposition of a fine, and possible criminal penalties. The woman had traveled to Iraq as a human shield in February of 2003, and stayed about one month. She and her lawyer say there is an unconstitutional attempt to control information and humanitarian travel. WAMC's Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne filed this report.
