Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - August 15, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky the passport question again we come to the question of definition what is a passport is it a card of introduction or identification is it a statement of National affiliation is it an assertion of Protection the passport has never been a card of identification until the United states supreme court withheld from the government of the United states the authority to decide to whom such a document would be granted. It. Was then that president Eisenhower called upon Congress to pass an act giving the Secretary of state a Clear statutory authority to prevent americans from using passports for travel to j areas where there is no Means of j protecting them or where their presence would conflict with our foreign policy objectives or be in j Miral to the Security of the United i having lived in Asia Many years j the passport to me has come to mean a document of Protection in i fact without it one could not live anywhere except in a few treaty j ports in China and even there i it was dangerous to be without j such a document too i the supreme courts concern with the passport arises out of 5.he communist cases. The state department had been withholding passports from certain americans on the ground that it was against the interest of the government that they should travel abroad some of them were suspected of being spies. Espionage is difficult to prove according to the rules of evidence tile Fri May have an enormous mass of material on a Man or a woman but Little of it would stand up in a court of Law because the witnesses would have to be spies or former spies and their testimony in a court would imperil them. Some of the information comes from other governments and cannot be used. Some of it comes from sources which Are perhaps themselves illegal. Such As intercepting Telephone Calls or surveillance of the work of unfriendly governments. Tile data has been screened and checked but if the matter has to be considered in the open court much of it must be withheld. As Robert John of the passport office said even if the state department knew that an american communist planned to go to Moscow and to take with him important american defense secrets for delivery to communist espionage officials a passport could not be denied him under current supreme court decisions. The supreme court in the Case of Rockwell Kent and Walter Briehl held that communism is a matter of belief and association. Tile court said a a they Are being denied their Freedom of movement solely because of their refusal to lie subjected to inquiry into their beliefs and associations they do not seek to escape the Law nor to violate this is after the Hiss Case and the Rosenberg Case the Fuchs espionage the cold War. And everything else that is current history the court held that the state department could Only withhold passports in cases involving allegiance and in involving criminal activity unless a spy has been caught tried and convicted he is not legally a spy no matter what information the state department the Fri and the Cia May have and he is entitled to a passport. This applies to communists who May be members of the propaganda divisions of the communist party and who May be going abroad to do harm to the United states. The state department is precluded from going into motives and personal histories and is limited to court decisions. Too that is now the Law of the land and will remain the Law unless Congress passes another act to give the state department authority Over passport control or until j another court comes into existence. Tine minority of the present court j said a a in a wholly realistic sense there is no peace today and there was no peace in 1952. At both. Times the state of National emergency declared by the president in 1950. Wherein he stated that the world Conquest by communist imperialism is the goal of the forces of aggression that have been loosed upon the world and that the increasing menace of the forces of communist aggression requires that the National defense of the United states be strengthened As speedily As possible a was in full of course the supreme court May choose to ignore a presidential proclamation but the court is bound by a constitutional act of.
