      the country. There is only a right to freedom of movement between the states as implied by the privileges and immunities clause in the constitution.

      The US may be a signatory of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which would guarantee freedom of movement to and from one's home country, however the declaration is nonbinding.

      While I think such a right does exist, and so did FDR, unfortunately US law currently doesn't prevent the government from infringing upon that right.
